This Christmas tree cookie recipe is a festive choice for the holiday season. Like other holiday cookie recipes, these are sweet and buttery with a Christmassy twist. The quick icing recipe for these cookies is an easy mixture of icing sugar and milk. A traditional way of decorating cookies during the holiday season is to flood the tops with loosened royal icing, but the process of decorating these cookies is far easier; you merely dip the cookies in the frosting and pipe a rim around the edges. The icing is flavored with almond extract, but if you aren’t a fan, you could substitute with some vanilla instead. If you want a good sugar cookie recipe, the dough would be an excellent base for cookies any time of year. Consider turning these cookies into an Easter treat with rabbit or egg-shaped cutters or cut into hearts for Valentine’s day. Whatever occasion you use this Christmas tree cookie recipe for, it will be a keeper.
