"Christmas Tree Hanging Ornament Sugar Cookies"

Submitted by Deeba Rajpal


Here are a set of cookie Christmas tree ornaments... edible coulourful and festive. They can be made with an assortment of Christmas cookie cutters, topped with coloured sugar cyrstals, sprinkles &/or M&M's. Remember to make a hole on top of each cookie before baking, also, they need to be handled delicately whilst threading the ribbon. Use a basic sugar cookie recipe.

The M&M's are put on the cookie prior to baking. The coloured sugar crystals, sprinkles and dragees are sprinkled onto an icing drizzled onto the cookie after it is baked. I make the icing by combining castor sugar with water to get a thick consistency. Some people use lime juice instead of water. The toppings are sprinkled onto the icing when its wet; this way the icing acts as a glue.

The combinations are endless and enjoyable... like an extended canvas! Another option is melting candies into smaller cut-outs inside a basic cookie to get a stained glass cookie ornament.
