How To Decorate Christmas Cookie Ornaments - Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas

20 Dec 2019

These cookies were inspired by my late grandmother’s handmade Christmas ornaments. My brothers and I called her mummu, which is a Finnish name for grandma. Notice the Nordic influence in these cookies?

For this project you will need:

Roll out cookie dough (my Orange Vanilla Spice recipe is available in my tutorial shop)
3″ round cookie cutter
Heart cutter
Paring knife to cut out the 6 pointed star shape
Decorating tip #8, #3 and #1
Flood consistency royal icing
Medium consistency royal icing
Scribe tool
Embroidery thread

Red = Americolor tulip red + burgundy + a touch of black
