Hello friends. I hope you’ve been well. It’s been gloomy around here but it makes for perfect cozy twinkling photos.
I’m happy to be joining my friends as we host a fun Christmas cookie exchange post. I’ve been wanting to do one of these for a long time, so I’m glad that my friend Kristen took the lead and put this hop together.
I can’t wait to see all the delicious recipes and I hope you will also check them out. As you probably have already noticed, I’m all about plaid this year and so I thought I’d give these plaid Christmas cookies a go.
I have to be honest with you, but they’re not as cute as I envisioned them to be. But I think they would still make a cute display. 😉
I also have to admit that I cheated a little. But I have a good excuse. I have been trying to eat healthy and making sugar cookies from start would mean that I would probably be too tempted to either eat one OR lick the spoon lol .
So I used premade cookies and placed a thin layer of fondant on top. You can also use sugar glaze. But I find the fondant is a bit easier.
I used THIS technique to paint them.
I’m not very good at straight lines but that’s the fun part about tartan and plaid; it doesn’t really have to be perfect.
They’re very unusual aren’t they?
Well, that’s all I have but don’t forget to check out the rest of the delicious cookies below.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Oh Lucy, you never ever ever cease to amaze me with your creativity! These are little works of art!!!
I think they are gorgeous! I have never seen anything like these before either! However, I can’t get the link to work on how you did them…. When I click on it, nothing happens.
This is such a fun idea! Plaid is having such a huge moment right now and it’s so festive for the holidays, I can’t wait to try this! Do you have a link to the technique you used? There is no clickable link that I can find.
