What to create a Show-stopping Cookie Tray? Think of your cookie platter as a round clock with placement of cookies at twelve, four and eight. Select large cookies with no frosting for the bottom layer, then add medium sized cookies, and last…the smallest cookies and candies on the top layer. Ta Da! All the cookies on this plate were part of the Christmas Cookie Countdown Series featured on Daytime Tri-Cities. Recipes are included in this post.
Poinsettia Cookies are cut-out butter cookies that are baked and cooled then decorated like a poinsettia using red, green and yellow buttercream frosting. The Poinsettia Cookies are the first cookies in the Christmas Cookie Countdown. We will be baking together in advance, like 15 weeks ahead to get a jump start on Holiday Baking. All of the recipes I will be sharing are recipes that can be made-a-head and frozen undecorated. This baking series include roll out, shaped, pressed and slice and baked cookies. We will add a few surprises to make your holiday cookie trays present well and taste delicious! Get ready our first cookie of this series is the Poinsettia Cookie!
