Cookies for a Christmas Tree

Posted December 24th, 2010 in Food No Comments »

Baking cookies is one of the fun activities you can do for Christmas!  You can create them in any shapes, and decorate with your favorite color.

Poke a hole on the cookie dough before baking so that they can be hung on your Christmas tree. 🙂    Make sure the hole is big enough as the hole will go smaller after baking.


<Cookies> makes about 30~40 of 5cm Christmas trees

  • 160g butter, unsalted
  • 120g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 320g plain flour
  • a drop of vanilla extract

<Icing>  makes enough for 60 cookies

  • 1 tsp vanilla yogurt
  • 4~6 icing sugar (adjust the consistency: hard, but soft enough to pipe out)
  • coloring 
  1. Cream butter in a bowl using a whist or hand mixer until whitish color.  Add sugar, and mix until the butter is fluffy.
  2. Add
  3. Mix until the dough comes together.  Wrap in plastic, and rest in the fridge for more than 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out the dough into 5mm thick.  Cut the dough into decorative shapes, using cookie cutters.  Arrange cookies on lined oven tray, and bake at 180℃ for about 10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are golden. 
  5. Once the cookies are cooled down, mix the ingredients for icing and put it in a small piping bag, or plastic bag.  Make a tiny hole on the tip, and decorate your cookies.
  6. Leave until the icing is set.  


Merry Christmas to you all !! (^0^)-☆
