Decorating Christmas Cookies Collection

As I thought through all the possibilities of shapes to do for Christmas…..it seemed like “decorating Christmas cookies” was a perfect theme.

That’s how I started decorating cookies. My dad made it an event every year when I was a little girl. My whole family did it together. And boy did we have fun…and make lots of memories!

Even though the Christmas season is jammed packed with so many extra activities…..make some time to decorate cookies with the ones you love. It will be worth every second.

And even though there will be time for the more traditional colors and shapes…..for now, we’re going wild and crazy with purple and turquoise. It creates such a whimsical feel to the set, don’t ya think?

I finally got my first set of Christmas cookies done and all I can think about is the next set. Can’t wait!

Lantern Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

Lanterns.....they are all the rage right now. It's funny how things come and go in popularity. I remember when my son and daughter-in-law got married FIVE years ago. The bridesmaid "bouquets" were lanterns. I loved the idea of something completely different than just flowers. 

So I probably shouldn't go through my house and count how many lanterns I have right now. haha There are several......most have a battery operated candles in them. I love having little "candle lights" all over the house for fall and winter. It makes everything so much more homey and cozy. :)

Here's a lantern cookie tutorial made from this cute cutter from BobbisCookiesCutters.
I've also recently purchased this lantern cutter.....so be on the look out for an alternative lantern design. Yeah!

 

Refer to the video and photos for this decorating tutorial.

Homespun Christmas Tree Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

This is one of my favorite Christmas cutters.
Several years ago, I designed this shape with some good cookie friends and the cutters were made in mass quantity. But eventually, they sold out of the cutter and it was hard to place another order. Thankfully, my good friends at Creative Cookier agreed to offer this shape in their shop. You can find the "Homespun Christmas Tree" cutter HERE

Refer to the video and photos below to learn how the two homespun tree designs were made.

And there you have it......two fun homespun Christmas tree cookie designs.

Christmas Gift Tag Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

If you've followed me at all in 2017, you know that I tend to favor these cute gift tag cutters.
I certainly love the shapes......but I also love that they are extremely versatile. 
You can literally use them for any season or occasion and I've definitely taken advantage of that this year. haha

The Creative Cookier graciously agreed to make these cutters for me.....and also make them available to you. Check out their store and all their great cutters and products!

The videos shows how to create all the Christmas gift tags in the photo.

For these circle and rectangle designed cookies, you'll need a circle cutter and/or a rectangle cutter (2.5" x 1.5") to impress in the dough before you bake them.
The knit impression mat can be found HERE. You'll need to allow the glaze to dry for at least 3.5 hours before pressing the mat into it for a knitted impression.
The "Merry Christmas" embosser can be found HERE. Press this into glaze that has dried for at least 2.5 hours.

For these smaller tags, use this tea bag cookie cutter.
Pick a mini cutter that fits well within the tag shape.

These tags require molding cookie dough and adding it on top of the cut-out tag before baking.
This tree mold and this pinecone mold were used for the tags.
The tree was covered in green dust.
The pinecone was covered in caramel dust.
The "Merry Christmas" embosser can be found HERE. Press this into glaze that has dried for at least 2.5 hours.

For this snowflake gift tag, use the largest snowflake plunger in THIS SET.
You'll need to impress the cookie dough with the plunger before you bake the cookies.
