O My Gosh, how completely adorable! I love to make sugar cookies for the holidays. Mine are usually red and yellow. Thanks for the cookie inspiration.


These look so more ways than one! I love frosted cookies like these, and your recipe sounds so good, Charlotte. They're just lovely. I need to look for a little house cookie cutter now!


Such sweet cookies - and you've packaged them up so prettily. Time to get out the mixer and rolling pin!

I have collected cookie cutters for 100 years now, and I needed a little inspiration. Those are beautiful!


Beyond cute!

Gorgeous cookies! I am IMPRESSED!

Teresa McFayden

Gaaa!!!! Lovely! So beautiful and if Mo likes them, they must be ever so yummy! I'm putting this on my list of cookies to make this year. Can't even wait to taste them.


How adorable those cookie houses are! They remind me of my current house when we first bought it--a modern Victorian (with a turret), and painted the same color of pink! Unfortunately all the siding had to be replaced and we opted for sunny yellow to counteract the gray days here in the pacific northwest. I have a big cookie cutter collection, but not a single house. I never knew a house cookie could look so CUTE! Thank you Charlotte for all that you share. xo

Those cookies are just so cute. Love them - I just ran across a house cookie cutter I bought several years ago & haven't even used. Might have to give it a whirl. But, my guys probably would like red or green ones. Thanks for the smile!


found similar house cookie cutters online:

If they taste as good as they look then they must be fantastic! Have a happy weekend! Warmly, Cathy ^..^


Those are so, so cute! Now I just need the house cookie cutter...


I Love your little pink house cookies! I think I might have to make some...they look so good.
THanks for sharing your great ideas.... :-)

Beautiful cookies Charlotte, and so pretty in pink! Thank you so much for the recipe! You enjoy a lovely weekend!




My mom and I are going to make some of these for gifts for our friends in our dollhouse group. Mom has a little house out behind her house that is about 12 by 24 and we call it "The Whatnot" and that is where our dollhouse club meets. It looks a bit like Santa's workshop in there. Beautiful dollhouses are built there. Thanks for sharing these darling cookies.


I love your pink house cookies!!! :-)
