Simple Winter Holiday Cookies
It's not quite time to say goodbye to the holiday season yet! @ardycakes shows us how to use CookieCutterKingdom's Christmas cutters to make these deceptively simple yet elegant winter holiday cookies.
The holidays are upon us and if you’re like me, you don’t have time to make super fancy cookies. But, here’s a trick to making super fancy-looking cookies that will have your friends ringing your praises!
Things you’ll need:
-CookieCutterKingdom Holiday Cutters (Bell, Ornament, Tree, Stocking, Mitten)
-Shortbread cookie dough
- White royal Icing (CookieCutterKingdom recipe here)
-Piping bag fitted with a tip #4 (For an easy, no mess option for cookie decorating, try Tipless Piping Bags. Simply cut the tip size you want and discard the bag when you're done. No need for clean up!)
-Red and green fondant
-Flower and leaf molds
After cutting out the different shapes and baking the cookies, outline your shapes with the royal icing and fill them in. I chose all white because they look elegant and so that the colors can really pop.
While your icing is drying, make red flowers and green leaves with your molds. Once the cookies are dry to your touch, attach the accessories with a dab of royal icing from your piping bag. That’s it! It’s really that simple!
Now you’ll have time to finish that shopping and wrap those gifts. In fact, throw these cookies into cellophane bags tied with ribbon! Now, that’s a pretty sweet gift!
