Combine loads of good wishes,
heartfuls of love and armfuls of hugs,

top off with presents.
CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT COOKIES…
…With Christmas almost here, here are a set of cookie Christmas tree ornaments…edible, colourful and festive. They can be made with an assortment of Christmas cookie cutters, topped with coloured sugar crystals, sprinkles &/or M ‘n’ M’s . Do remember to make a hole on top of each cookie before baking; also, they need to be handled delicately whilst threading the ribbon.
SPIRIT OF THE SEASON…
The recipe for the sugar cookies is my basic sugar cookies recipe that can be found here. The M ‘n’ M’s are put on the cookie prior to baking. The coloured sugar crystals, sprinkles & 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 & enjoyable…like an extended canvas!
Have just found a Christmas blog event ‘Waiting for Christmas 2007’ on the day of closing, which is today. Tripped onto the blog off Laurie Constantino while drooling over her Ladenia-Olive oil bread. These cookie ornaments are off to Francesca for ‘Waiting for Christmas 2007’, & of course to Susan at Food Blogga for ‘Eat Christmas Cookies’. Susan’s Christmas cookie entries are a sweet sight with such a delicious assortment under her roof…it’s unbelievable!!
