How to Decorate Christmas Cookies

How to Decorate Christmas Cookies

Sample provided.

My parents and I moved from England to the US when I was 5, so a big part of the holidays was calling our family back home and seeing what Grandma had sent in her annual Christmas package. Every so often, you’d find a small packet of Walkers Shortbread tucked in with the toys and goodies; so it reminded me of those packages when a box of Walkers showed up at my door this month!

Walkers Shortbread

I had never seen these Festive Shapes before, and I thought they were really sweet! These are the perfect canvas to dress up however you see fit – so if you want to show your kids how to decorate Christmas cookies, this is an easy way to start! Try this idea:

Decorative Icing

Recipe provided by Walkers Shortbread.

Ingredients:

4 C sifted confectioner’s sugar
3 to 4 TBSP water or fresh lemon juice
Food coloring

Directions:

Mix the sugar with the water or juice, a little bit at a time, until your desired consistency is achieved. Separate the icing into different bowls and add drops of food coloring to each one to your liking. Keep icing covered with cling film when not in use.

Christmas cookies

I had to scale down the recipe quite a bit because, ahem, I ate most of the cookies before I decorated them. ;) To decorate, I put the icing into sandwich bags, folded them up, and snipped off the end with scissors; it was a little messy, so if fine designs is what you’re going for, you might want to bust out a formal decorating tube. But if you just want to have fun with the kiddos, I wouldn’t sweat it – Santa will love them either way! Merry Christmas!
