Cute Christmas Cookies
to make you smile

Christmas bunny cookies

 

Last week, I rediscovered my Enchanted Forest Biscuit set, which I had completey forgotten about.

I had so much love for these bunnies over on Instagram, that I thought I’d better let you all know how I made them! I didn’t just stop at bunnies though.. ho (ho ho) no…

Christmas Cookies

Edible Christmas Tree!

The recipe is so easy. You can jazz them up as much as you like by adding orange zest, spices (ginger, mixed spice, cinnamon etc) vanilla, cocoa etc… but I went basic basic basic.. and they were delicious!

Here it is – this recipe makes around 20 cookies (depending on what size your cookie cutters are.)

Ingredients
225g Butter
110g Caster sugar
275g Plain flour

1. Pop your oven onto 170°C

2. Cream the butter and sugar together and beat until light and fluffy.

3. Add the flour and combine together gently until you have a dough.

4. Stick the dough in the fridge for an hour.

5. Roll out your dough to the thickness of a £1 coin and cut out your cookies

6. Place them on a lined tray and stick them in the oven for around 12 minutes, or until they are golden brown. (My bunnies were done after 10 minutes, but my houses needed around 13 minutes, so keep an eye on them.) Cool on a wire rack.

7. Decorate!

You can decorate your cookies however you like. I usually make my own icing, but on this occasion I used Dr Oetker Designer Icing, which comes in a squeezable pack with four different sized nozzle fittings you can attach.

It was a bit precarious (disastrous) at first, but I got better and better with every cookie. There were several rejects, which didn’t matter at all as I’d made loads.. AND, it was a great excuse to eat them. (DESTROY THE EVIDENCE. I AM DOMESTIC GODDESS.)

I’d bought some Lindt dark chocolate, which I melted in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.. and I’d also managed to get my mitts on some edible glitter. Which was ridiculously fun. And ridiculously messy. (But that could just be me.)

I made the eyes/holes with a straw. Easy peasy.

I dipped the bunny’s ears in chocolate and used the flower setting on my designer icing to make the fluffy tail… cute!

I used some simple string to hang up my cookies on my Christmas tree, but again, you could use anything you like – ribbon, pretty string, wire… anything goes!

I love this idea for a cheap and gorgeous way to decorate your Christmas tree.. and guests love picking off a cookie (or two) to nibble when they come round to visit!

You’ll be the talk of the town.

I was. But that could be because I was covered in glitter.

p.s.  The reason I haven’t linked to my biscuit cutter set, is because I can’t find it available anywhere! I originally bought it at Recipease, but they don’t seem to be stocking them anymore… Ihave had lots of requests so am doing my best to find them – I promise to let you know when I do.

But in the meantime, please don’t despair – there are loads of super cookie cutters and biscuit cutters about – here are a few I found on my searches…

  2. It’s a shame that you post recipes so rarely. I made the bunnies just to give them a try and they turned out amazing. I hope you’ll post more food related posts and recipes in the future
