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 😦
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 🙂
