CLOSING COOKIES: White Christmas at Paper Mill Playhouse

I've spent the last two months getting into the holiday spirit backstage at

This is the largest musical I've ever been a part of, a real Broadway-scale show (it was actually a re-mount of the Broadway production), and I had an absolute blast! The show is both charming and amazing (how about an 8-minute tap number at the top of the second act!), and I loved watching from the wings each night.

This was also my first venture in Child Wrangling. I was the guardian for two ten-year-old girls who alternated the role of Susan, the General's granddaughter who whips out a show-stopping number towards the end of the show.

All in all, a GREAT experience. NOW ON TO THE COOKIES!

Nearing the holiday season, I always get excited to make Christmas cookies, so to have a Christmas show closing on Christmas Eve was just perfect!

I took inspiration from the logo above, and made my signature Christmas Gingerbread cookies (secret family recipe).

My favorite/the most difficult was the White Christmas lettering.

Then came ALL the snowflakes, BIG and small.

And then, of course, the snowglobes!

I made enough for the entire cast, crew, and band! 
It kept me up all week, but not one was left by the end of the show!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Holiday Christmas cookies coming soon!
