Christmas is here! That means it’s time for gingerbread cookies!

Val and I made our own gingerbread dough, cut into shapes and baked them. After all that was done it was time for the fun part…decorating!

Val made a ton of holiday-looking cookies.

Cute! But, not what I had in mind. I wanted to make Avatar cookies! I got the idea from the episode “Avatar Day” — I’m not going to get into the whole synopsis of the show, but basically the villagers made Avatar cookies (yet they hated the Avatar but ended up liking the Avatar in the end). That’s my inspiration.

I made a couple doodles in gingerbread style to get started.

Planning for Katara:

And of course Aang:

They actually came out pretty good. Not perfect or anything, but I think you can tell who the characters are. Here’s them drying on the cookie rack:

And then on display:

Yum yum! Good enough to eat?

Let’s take a closer look at the Avatar cookies!
