5 Ways for the Family to Decorate Christmas Cookies
It’s a blizzard in the kitchen with this idea. Go for a winter white theme and give the kids an array of snowy options. Start with white frosting, and then add shredded coconut, mini marshmallows, white sprinkles or powdered sugar.
Red and Green Extravaganza
Go with the colors of the holiday and decorate the cookies in a blanket of red and green. Try half and half red and green cookies (similar to the circle-shaped black and white’s), make red and green snowflakes or create red and green Santa hats using triangle-shaped cookies.
These cookies are a tried and true traditional favorite. Give each family member a gingerbread person to decorate, asking them to dress it up like themselves. Line up these sweet self-portraits and you’ll have a family of yumminess.
Spell It Out
Use alphabet cookie cutters to create shortbread or sugar cookie letters. Everyone can frost their own picks, and then spell out sweet holiday messages.
Put a few candy canes into a zipper baggies and crush them with the back of a wooden spoon. Use the candy cane dust to deck out frosted cookies.
