A few months ago, I accidentally made a batch of cookies and only added enough sugar for a half of a batch. Fortunately, they happened to be squares, not some obscure shape, so I was able to freeze them just in case inspiration should strike. You can always find a use for plain squares. Then I saw some cute Christmas tree tee shirts made with ribbons, and I was inspired to pull out one of those squares.
- squares or circles outlined, base coated, and dried
- Stiff green icing and a petal tip (size depending on the size of your cookie- this was a 101)
- Red and green confetti sprinkles
- Yellow star sprinkle
- Stiff brown icing with a star tip
1- Pipe a ruffle along the bottom of the cookie, leaving room for the tree trunk. Add some confetti sprinkles using tweezers.
2- Pipe more rows of ruffles with sprinkles, making each row a bit shorter to create a triangle. Attach the star sprinkle to the top with a dab of icing.
3- Add a trunk with your star tip.
That’s it! Wouldn’t these be cute packed in a cellophane bag with some small red, green, and white circles?
