Christmas is just around the corner and that means we’ve probably been stuffing our faces with all the desserts made by friends, coworkers, and especially our moms!
This time round I made two types of cookies that, I believe, really reflect my personality.
Gay Deconstructed Santa Cookies
I just used a generic Sugar Cookie recipe and some cutters I picked up at Winners (on sale) last Christmas. Unfortunately I didn’t realize until too late that I only had pink food colouring and none of the red I needed for Santa. So he ended up hot pink!
After icing the cookies I sprinkled some shredded coconut onto the whites for a furry appearance!
Cookie Shot Glasses
These were a nightmare to put together, but the end result was worth it!
Because I didn’t have a popover pan I had to create my molds using a paper towel roll cut down and wrapped in tinfoil. I pressed the dough into my makeshift molds and then wrapped some more tinfoil around wine corks and placed those in the center to keep the dough in the shape that I want while it bakes.
I used a recipe by The Stay at Home Chef, except that with my homemade molds I had to bake for 30 minutes. Then I let them cool down before peeling away the tinfoil and cardboard. Which meant that each mold was good for a onetime use!
Here’s the links to everyone else’s cookie recipes!
Take this as inspiration to create your own cookie boxes, or even to just bake cookies for private consumption! Enjoy!
