{Cookie Trees…Easy as 1,2,3}

December 05, 2013

'Tis the season for holiday parties, and I know we all love coming up with cute treats that are festive, fun, and easy to make.  I came across these adorable cookie trees, and I can't wait to make them for my holiday gatherings this season.  Not only are they easy to assemble, they are perfect for people of all ages.  Pop them on a pretty platter for your holiday cocktail party with friends or stick them in treat bags as goodies for your children's classmates and teachers.
They are so simple and sure to be a hit!! :)

- Lemon Tea Shortbread Cookies
- Snickerdoodles
- Golden Oreos
- Nilla Wafers
- Nutter Butter Bites
- Green Sparkle Gel Icing
- White Sugar Pearl Sprinkles
- White Chocolate Chips
  1. Organize your cookies according to size.
  2. Place your shortbread cookie on your “cooking” surface. Squeeze a ring of gel icing on the outer top edge of the cookie.
  3. Press down the next cookie.
  4. Squeeze another ring and add your next cookie.
  5. Repeat until you get to the top.
  6. Top with a white chocolate chip as your star and let the icing set for a few minutes.
  7. Repeat with as many trees as you like.
  8. Now it’s time to add your ornaments. Wilton’s Sugar Pearl sprinkles are great because they really do look like little pearls. These show two rows of ornaments on the outer edge of the trees.
  9. You can also add red sparkle gel icing for additional color.
