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.
