So these cookie adorning movies you see on the web? The place folks magically flip a cookie into a bit of artwork? Ya, I can’t do this. I’m fairly good at making cookies, however I lack primary cookie adorning abilities. Or possibly simply the desire to spend that a lot time on every cookies. And the talents, I positively lack the talents.
So I often simply follow my tremendous quick technique of frosting cookies and name it good. However because it’s almost Christmas I made a decision to go above and past: I used mini M&Ms to make cute Christmas sugar cookies with no abilities and minimal effort.
I like Christmas, and I like doing enjoyable Christmas-y stuff, however typically I actually simply want one thing EASY. All you need to do for these cookies is frost them with plain white frosting, and add mini M&Ms. (Click on right here for my favourite gentle sugar cookie and cream cheese frosting recipe. Or simply purchase your self a bath of dough. Simple.)
I made Christmas timber, snowflakes, and ornaments. You’ll be capable of adorn fairly just a few cookies with a full bag of mini M&Ms (I discovered them within the baking aisle at my retailer). And also you’ll have plenty of brown M&Ms left over, which you’ll simply must eat.
For the decoration cookie, I lined up M&Ms throughout the cookie in crimson, orange, and yellow, and I topped every cookie with a mini Reese’s (they arrive in a bag already unwrapped only for extraordinarily lazy folks like me).
For the snowflake cookie, I began with one blue M&M within the heart of the cookie, then surrounded it with 6 extra in a circle. Lastly, I made 6 “arms” on the snowflake utilizing 2 extra M&Ms in every.
And for the Christmas tree cookie, I simply made a triangle out of inexperienced M&Ms and topped with a yellow M&M “star” and brown M&M “trunk”.
Right here’s a video that reveals every cookie getting adorned. Not that you just really want to observe the video, as a result of like I stated, these are lifeless straightforward. However hey, possibly you need to see my fingers dropping M&Ms on cookies. In case you do, then go for it:
Comfortable Christmas everybody!
