Make every Christmas a cookie craft Christmas! The holidays
offer just the right combination of cold weather and family
togetherness for cookie crafters to elevate their skills to
showstopping new heights. With more than 60 new Christmas cookie
designs, along with festive New Year''s cookies and lovely Hanukkah
treats, Cookie Craft Christmas delivers colorful
inspiration to cookie decorators just when they need it most.
Each spread features a full-page, close-up photograph of one cookie
cutter shape with detailed decorating instructions on the facing
page. Some pages feature one gloriously decorated cookie, while
others might feature two or three interpretations of the same shape
- ornaments in complementary colors, Christmas trees decorated in
varying styles, or gingerbread men wearing a rainbow of colors and
Decorating instructions are as simple as tinting cookie dough green
before baking Christmas trees or as intricate as piping hair on a
gingerbread grandma, creating a frilly pattern for her apron, and
decorating her dress using a pretty feathering technique.
Techniques are described in full in a Decorating Glossary, and
cookie and icing recipes are included.
Fresh inspiration and fabulous decorating ideas fill the pages of
this handy little sourcebook. It''s the perfect gift for anyone who
