stacked sugar cookies Christmas tree
- sugar cookie dough, (and glaze)
- cookie cutters, star-shaped, 5 different sizes
- green edible glitter
- red edible sugar balls
- white star-shaped candy, optional
- Make sugar cookie dough and cut into star shapes (you'll need approximately 5 each of 5 different size stars per tree, depending on how tall you want your tree).
- Bake cookies per recipe instructions and let cool completely then ice cookies with glaze.
- While glaze is still wet, sprinkle cookies with green edible glitter and add edible sugar balls to each point of the stars. Allow icing to harden, about 30 minutes.
- To assemble the tree, stack the 5 largest cookies, offsetting each slightly then repeat with progressively smaller groups of cookies.
- Use icing to secure a white candy star to the top of the tree, if desired.
Edible glitter is my new favorite baking decoration!
