These Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie are an elegant looking Christmas tree, that looks like the snow just started to catch on its limbs.
In this recipe, you’ll see me referring to that icing in the second method. This method is all about how long the icing takes to go back into itself. Don’t be worried it is really easy. Just count the seconds it takes when you test squeezing the icing from the icing bag.
To make it a faster second you will need to slowly add water to your icing. You can learn all about this in my tips of royal icing seen here.

Christmas Tree Homemade Sugar Cookie Ingredients
Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Directions
- After your dough has been rolled out and refrigerated for half an hour cut your trees with the cookie cutter from the dough.
- Place the rectangles onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies have browned on the edges.
- Move the cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to completely cool.
- When your cookies are cooling prepare your royal icing.
- Place 2/3 of your royal icing into one bowl and color it green. Divide the remainder of the icing into two bowls and color one bowl brown.
- Place your green, brown, and white royal icing into their own pastry bag with number 3 straight pastry tip.
- Pipe the outer border of the green on your tree. Remove the green icing from your bag and thin it out to a six-second icing and flood in the tree using a toothpick to fill in any holes.
- With your brown icing add your outline to the stump. Remove the brown icing from your bag and thin it out to a six-second icing and flood in the stump using a toothpick to fill in any holes.
- With your white icing add wavy lines to the tree only working on one cookie at a time. While your icing is still wet take a damp paintbrush and gently thin out the icing upward.
