These have become part of our Christmas tradition. We even leave two out on Christmas Eve for Santa. We have changed it over the years. We use snow flake cookie cutters instead of stars, vanilla icing instead of pudding, confectioners sugar, and color sprinkles to look like lights. My eight year old daughter looks forward to making these every year.
