Rustic Christmas Cookies

Halloween wasn’t even over and I was itching to bake Christmas cookies.  I really wanted to try Sweet Sugar Belle’s brown sugar recipe and loved the idea of rustic Christmas cookies so took inspiration from her post and made my own.  (As an aside, if you haven’t checked out her stuff yet, GO NOW! Seriously amazing creations.)

I had also made some royal icing poinsettia transfers (once again an awesome Sugar Belle tutorial) and wanted to put them into action.

I had made some royal icing holly along with the poinsettia and I really love them! They were relatively easy to make too.  Unfortunately my piping icing was a little too runny for the burlap pattern I wanted to try.

Sadly, this branch, which was one of my favourites, was a victim of fumbling fingers and some of the berries got crushed during the photographing process 😦

I’m in love with this pinecone cookie! I’m actually quite sad I didn’t make more.  10679496_10152533297577523_1995760117900685526_o

The birch pattern is my second favourite! I foresee many more birch cookies in my future 🙂 1604694_10152533297582523_2277235305393027062_n

The brown sugar cookie recipe was delicious, although I ended up cutting way back on the leveanor for my second batch because I found they spread too much the first time around.

This was just one set of MANY Christmas cookies I’ve made so far this year and I look forward to sharing the rest 🙂
