BobandLarry.jpgMy friends over at VeggieTales, Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, want to share a cookie recipe they created to celebrate the release of their new Christmas DVD, “Saint Nicholas – A Story of Joyful GIving.”
These yummy Christmas cookies are too good to wait until December. So let’s celebrate Christmas in July, with Bob and Larry’s sugar cookie recipe! Why not use a star cookie cutter to make some 4th of July stars?

Bob & Larry’s Sugar Cookies
“Christmastime means cookies are in the oven just for me! The smell of yummy morsels makes me want to hum ‘Deck The Halls’ while my tummy starts to grumble.” says Larry the Cucumber. “I like to paint my cookies with colorful icing – or if time’s a wastin’, simply sprinkle ’em with colored sugar.”
