I thought it was time for a simple holiday cookie you could whip up in a jiffy! These are easy as pie! The hardest part is cutting them out.
- - Small Rectangle cookie cutter – I used the one from THIS set.
- - Candy Cane cookie cutter
- - White pipe and flood
- - Red pipe and flood
- - Leaf Green pipe and flood
- - Black pipe and flood
- - Holiday sprinkles of your choice.
Start by putting your shape together.
Cut out a rectangle and a candy cane shape from your cookie dough. Using your rectangle, cut out an indention in your candy cane. Then, place the cut out rectangle in the candy cane space and piece your candy cane back together. **Note: be sure all edges are completely molded together. You can do this by squishing the dough together at each seam. This will prevent breakage when decorating.**
Repeat until you’ve cut out as many as you’ll need and bake them.
Once your cookies are completely cooled, pipe and flood in the white part of your candy cane.
Next, use the wet-on-wet technique to apply your candy cane stripes.
Then, pipe and flood in the rectangle using your green.
Using the same wet-on-wet technique, apply white polka dots to the green flooded area.
Allow cookies to completely harden, or dry overnight.
Add a green border around your rectangle.
While your flood is still wet, add your sprinkles.
Shake off any excess sprinkles. Then, using your black pipe, write “North Pole” on your rectangle sign. I used a PME 23 tip.
Let your green flood and writing completely harden and you’re ready for transport!
Happy Tuesday! Stay warm & have a great week!
