I received this Wilton Cookie Tree kit for christmas last year so i've been waiting awhile to try and make this gingerbread tree which I thought, all though a little time consuming, was very easy to do.
The kit comes with the star shape cutters in graduated sizes, two icing tips- one round and one star, two piping bags and recipes to make all kinds of cookie trees, you can even make a gelatine one if you wanted.
I made two batches of Grandma's Gingerbread Cookies. You can find the recipe on the Wilton website. here is the link:
|The recipe says to melt the butter then add the sugar, molasses and beaten eggs to the pot|
|flour, ginger, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg|
|christmassy goodness right there :)|
|I had a lot of extra dough leftover so I made some other shapes too|
|stacking the stars|
|You can make a bigger tree by adding two stars of each size, I made a smaller version and just used one of each size star|
|I added some silver dragees, snowflake sprinkles and a fondant star|
|I love to bake...but HATE the clean up :s|
More christmas cookies to come :) stay tuned
