Merry Christmas Everyone! It’s Kim, The Partiologist, back with a couple more Christmas Cookies. With not much time before Christmas, I decided to show you how to make a North Pole Cookies plus an easy Chocolate Covered OREO, Christmas style! Christmas Cookies!
Not only will I show you how to decorate them, I also have a pretty cute way to display them.
Bake your chocolate sugar cookie (or regular sugar cookie) in rectangle shapes.
After they have cooled, begin piping royal icing around the edge of the cookie to make a border.
Completely fill in the cookie with royal icing.
After the royal icing has dried, pipe a little more icing across the top of the cookie for the snow.
Before the icing for the now has set, sprinkle with sanding sugar and disco dust (optional).
Use a paintbrush (used only for food) and brush the excess sugar off the cookie.
Fill a pastry bag with a stiff consistency of red royal icing.
I found the stripes sticks at World Market and used those for the pole.
Top the cookie stick with a red gumball using a bit of royal icing.
After the north pole cookies are dry, turn them over and add the stick to the back by piping melted chocolate over the stick. Let it dry on to the cookie.
Now are you ready for the display?
I found this little tulle peppermint skirt at Claire’s boutique.
Bought it because it was on clearance and knew someday I would put it to good use.
Actually, I bought two.
I had two glass vases that were the perfect size for the tulle skirts. (Okay, maybe I went and bought two vases that were the perfect size.
I did however, have a smaller vase to prop the larger vase on.
Then I placed the tulle skirt around the vase and filled it with sugar.
And since I had two, I knew just what to do.
Make Chocolate Dipped Oreo’s.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a chocolate covered OREO, right?
And the winter OREO’s were perfect for the job.
Again, using the red and white striped cookie sticks.
Open the OREO and place a cookie stick in the middle.
Add a small amount of red melted candy melts to the top cookie and replace on top of the cookie stick.
Dip each cookie in red melted candy melts.
Once the cookie is dry, roll and cut holly leaves out of fondant.
Add fondant leaves and red candy to the front of the cookie, using a little melted candy melt as glue.
Add them to the display.
Now once I had the displays ready to go, I needed a place to serve them.
I decided to use the area around my cook top, isn’t that what it’s for?
It’s filled with peppermint lanterns and more.
Here’s a close up of the cookies…
And the OREO Cookie Pops…
However you celebrate, I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas with family and friends.
