We are big Rudolf fans, in fact, the Rudolf movie is one of my favorite classic Christmas movies.  Miss E requested Rudolf cupcakes on her third birthday, even though her birthday is in the Spring. We make these Rudolf sugar cookies every year, they are so adorable and east to make too.  Do you bake with your kids?  If you are looking for ways to get kids away from screens I encourage getting them in the kitchen. You don’t need any fancy icing or art skills to make these Rudolf cupcakes.  Crank up the Christmas music and have some fun.

What is your favorite thing to bake during the holidays?

 

Happy Holidays
