Santa Cookie Garland




Cookie garlands are so pretty! Why didn't I make one before? Well, that is a question! Perhaps because I usually  make different kind of garlands, with  dried orange slices, cinnamon and cloves. It smells nice. Try it.
This  year I decided to make something different. Santa Garland came to mind. 
I'm planning on giving it  to friend of ours with the hope her kids will like it as much I do.

Cookie Garland Tips
  • When using cookies for garlands, I'd suggest you roll out the cookie  dough a little thinner than usual, so the garland once hanged is not too heavy. You can leave cookies baking a bit longer so they are little harder and sturdier.
  • Don't forget to make a little hole in the cookie,using a drinking straw, not too close to the edge though. You can do this before you bake the cookies or right after you take them out of the oven.
  • Decorate cookies with royal icing. Royal icing dries hard and is quite durable.
  • Once icing has dried you can thread a decorative ribbon through and hang the garland above the door, in the hall way,  in the window.
To make these cookies you will need:
Baked cookies with holes
Royal icing
Gel  Food coloring
Pretty ribbon
White nonpareils
Sparkling Sanding Sugar
Food Grade Coloring Pens by Global Sugar Art
  • Flood the cookies.
  • Wait till the hat and the beard part is dry.
  • Then flood the white part of the hat and dip or sprinkle white nonpareils on the top. Let dry.
  • Pipe moustache and add facial details with food pens
  • Pipe white  border the beard and face, sprinkle border with sparkling sugar.
  • Let dry completely.
