Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, which will set in motion some family holiday traditions. The day after Thanksgiving, the entire family heads out on a quest to find the perfect Christmas tree! Once we get it home, we bake cookies and decorate the tree all night! It’s one of my favorite tradition, and one that we all love to enjoy together.
In this tutorial I’ll teach you 6 different ways to decorate a Christmas Tree Cookie, using different decorating techniques. I hope you love them!
To decorate these cookies, you’ll need the following colors and consistencies of royal icing:
- Flood consistency royal icing: White, pink, green, brown and red
- Medium consistency royal icing: White, red, 2 shades of green
- Stiff consistency royal icing: White
To achieve the proper royal icing consistencies, please read my blog post: What is Royal Icing?
