Cookie Christmas Tree by Avon and Me

Avon Cookie Cutters 

Being obsessed with baking creative artisan sugar cookies this past month or so, I just had to purchase this set from Avon. Labeled as Build A Tree Cookie Cutter Set and priced crazy cheap $7.99. I will have to purchase more for Gifts!!

First step to making this clever, clever creation is  baking the cookies. My tried and true recipe was the perfect size!

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 sticks butter (I use 1 butter, 1 margarine)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons almond extract
  • 3 cups flour

Cut out all 10 stars and had extra dough so made extra stars and a few umbrellas for my tribute to Mary Poppins Returns (can not wait to see that movie)!

The Royal Icing recipes is as follows:  had plenty for both the tree and umbrellas

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons meringue powder
  • 3 Tablespoons water (add more to develop proper consistency for flooding)

Back to the Christmas Tree ………

Colored the stars in light green and outlined with white – all except the top star which I colored white and placed upside on the last top star. I added little circle sprinkles to act as ornaments. I swirled the royal icing to give the cookies a tree effect (if that makes sense) instead of a smooth finish. I let the cookies dry overnight before stacking them.

I absolutely LOVE this and it actually was super easy to do! I would say 2 of these would make a Great centerpiece for a large Christmas party!!
