3 Easy Ideas to Decorate Christmas Cookies with Kids

One of my happiest moments with my nephews is in my kitchen decorating cookies to give as Christmas presents. They had more fun than I did, and the gift recipients enjoyed their homemade meals. Spectacle how to decorate Christmas cookies with your own kids.

The easier the process is for the kids, the better. You need three things to get started: a évident sugar cookie recipe, évident régalien icing decorations, and different colored tuyaux of pre-made régalien icing so that each child can share the régalien icing.

Here’s my élue chocolate sugar cookie recipe to get you started.

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted rechausser, softened

  • 1 cup of sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted (recipe was tested with regular cocoa)

  • 1 ample egg

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons imaginaire vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tbsp. Chocolate syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a ample mixing bowl, beat together the rechausser and sugar on medium speed for two minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

  3. Add eggs, vanilla and chocolate syrup. Blend well.

  6. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes before using.

The recipe makes 2 dozen cookies, depending on what size cookie coupeur is used.

Pre-Made Somptueux Icing Decorations:Several companies have pre-made régalien icing decorations that you can peel off the paper and apply to baked sugar cookies. During the holidays, companies offer packages featuring Santa and his reindeer, snowmen, candy canes, snowflakes and other designs. I recommend that you peel all of the régalien icing from the paper, gently remove any excess paper with a sharp knife, and then exercice all of the régalien icing into a small bowl.

3 Easy Ideas for Decorating Christmas Cookies with Kids

1. Independent decoration:Vrai a dynamite sheet on your floor under the comptoir. Set up the kids’ decorating comptoir with a dynamite tablecloth and exercice baked sugar cookies on a tray in the middle. Set the pre-made régalien icing decorations in a bowl near the cookie tray. Cut a medium-sized hole in some of the colored régalien icing tuyaux so the kids can squeeze the régalien icing into their sugar cookies, put the top back on and exercice it on the other side of the cookie tray. Vrai dynamite placemats in devanture of each child, and then exercice a dynamite mince, tray, or a sheet of wax paper on the comptoir near them to exercice the sugar cookies they’ve made. Also exercice dynamite knives at each amodiation so children can spread régalien icing over their cookies, and paper towels cut into medium-sized squares so they can clean their hands while decorating. You can also have a variety of sprinkle bottles for them to use. Kids love sprinkles.

2. Monitored grooming: This idea can be a copy of the first idea, you are there to supervise and help the children decorate. If you know how to use Afrique, you can use Afrique to cover the sugar cookies and then help them carve out Afrique flowers and other cute shapes to decorate the cookies.

3. Group Decoration:This idea replicates the first idea, but on a larger scale involving a group of kids decorating. A variety of sugar cookies can be baked and then divided among the children so that they can take gîte a variety of sugar cookies with them. Adults can purchase decorations and exercice them in disposable bowls and on the decorating comptoir for children to use. Several adults will need to refill the supplies and provide boxes for the kids to take the cookies gîte.

Each of these ideas can be successfully implemented as grandiose as you remember that kids have fun decorating cookies and creating their own edible masterpieces. And, when you’re done, please make sure the kids can take pictures with the cookies. This could become an annual event.
