Cute Christmas Cookies Decorating Ideas

Posted on


Whether you want to host a Christmas cookie exchange with friends or just make some to gift or share over the holidays, here’s some cute decorating ideas to try. Most include recipes but you can easily swap in a different one if you prefer another flavour or want to make it vegan or gluten-free. Many can be made with store-bought cookies too.

Delish has a lot of cute Christmas cookies to browse through and I think these Christmas Tree Cookie Stacks are so clever and easy! The most difficult part is making 3 sizes of cookies but then it’s just some frosting and sprinkles.

Bakerella is well-known for kawaii cake pops but she also has lots of Christmas cookie recipes and decorating ideas. These Frosted Frostys sugar cookies are simple enough but the addition of sanding sugar gives them that extra sparkle of fresh snow.

Linzer cookies always look festive but if you don’t have any holiday-themed cookie cutters that are small enough, these reindeer cookies from Kitchen Mason just need a circle for a red nose. Add some icing eyes and antlers and you’re done.

Vegan Dollhouse is a great resource for vegan recipes, including cookies, but the decorating tips (including a video) for these Mini Wreath Cakes would work just as well on cookies. The marshmallow bows are especially cute.

Pinwheel cookies always look super impressive but are fairly easy to make, and don’t need any decorating once they come out of the oven. Sugar Hero! goes all out for a Christmas version with red and green dough and themed sprinkles.

Gingerbread cookies are a classic and you can find lots of tutorials for gingerbread people. If you don’t have shaped cutters or are no good at icing, these Caramel-Gingerbread Cookie Bars at Delish sound amazing and are simply decorated with frosting and sprinkles. Even your local supermarket should have some fun shapes or edible glitter.

If you do fancy getting the piping bags out, The Graceful Baker has a compilation of easy Christmas designs that all work on a round cookie. Even the more complicated ones are easier than they look and everyone will be so impressed.
