Let It Snow

December 2006
Snowflake Cookies


Nothing says Christmas like COOKIES! Put on some carols, bake and frost some cookies and watch the snow fall. Winter doesn’t get better than that.

Sarah saw these blue frosted snowflake cookies on the cover of some catalog and asked me to make them for a holiday party. I love requests because it challenges me to try something new. It was my first shot at royal icing and icing fill, but it wasn’t so bad! I think I could have been a little faster at the outlining, but I was so nervous about the piping. Practice makes perfect. It was a blast to decorate each cookie with sanding sugar, snowflake sprinkles and silver drages.

The cookies dough recipe is from Martha Stewart Living and it is basically a sugar cookie kicked up with lemon zest. I added a dash of lemoncello to both the cookies and the icing and it really gave it a citrus zing. Yummy.

Sarah loved them and they were a big hit at the party. An empty plate is a good sign.
