Decorating something quick and easy is what I was in the mood for when I went to use my leftover gingerbread dough.
These decorated wreath cookies are easy peasy lemon squeezy to make.
I tried a few different piping tips for the wreath ‘branches’ and have labelled each picture with the piping tip etc. I used for those branches.
If you’d like to make these, the list of the things you’ll need is below.
Holly berries add a bit of color.
What you’ll need to make Christmas Wreath Decorated Cookies:
- Gingerbread or Sugar Cookie Recipe
- Royal Icing Recipe – Leave it thick for the greenery. It has to be thick enough so that when you dip a spoon in and lift, the icing stands straight up. Water the icing down for the red bow. See information on runny icing consistency in my Tutorial
- Christmas Wreath Cookie Cutter
- Americolor Forest Green Gel Paste
- Americolor Red Gel Paste
- Leaf Icing Tip #65
- Star Tip #14
- Piping Bag Coupler
- Piping Bags
- Holly Berries And Leaves Sprinkles
I just had to show you a few other things before the Christmas season is over. The first one you may have seen already; I stumbled across them last year, and haven’t forgotten them because they’re so extremely adorable.
Megan of NotMartha.org is the talent behind these sweet creations. You can find a how-to on them here. Her site is a must-see if you haven’t been there already; it’s chock full of creative ideas and tutorials.
Second, this practical find from Costco. I’ve had it for months and keep meaning to share it here.
It’s a cupcake carrier, but works so well for storing or transporting cookies.
And last but not least, in the spirit of Christmas, I’d like to share a wonderful thing Kraft is doing this holiday season, appropriately called Recipe for Joy.
