25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Christmas Tree Butter Cookies

christmas cookie recipesPerhaps there’s no cookie that says Christmas like a simple butter cookie recipe that can be rolled out and cut into whatever holiday shapes your heart desires. For many of us, an afternoon spent frosting and decorating cookies like these was as much a part of the Christmas season as trimming the tree and hanging the stockings. Mom would clear off the kitchen table, whip up some frosting in different colors, and we’d all sit there working through a stack of blank-faced Christmas trees, Santas or stars listening to Andy Williams singing “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”

 

No, our childhood wasn’t as perfect as all that, but in retrospect, those afternoons were. (Even including how we all kind of looked the other way as our little sister piled her cookies with an inedible heap of candy sprinkles and red hots meant for Rudolph’s nose.)

 

Ok, where were we before that little trip down memory lane. Oh yeah, cookies. No, you don’t have to settle for just Christmas trees — put all your Christmas cookie cutters to good use here. Make sure to let the cookies cool completely before frosting them (in fact, it’s not a bad idea to let them cool to room temperature on the racks, store them in an airtight container overnight, then frost them the next day). Likewise, let the frosting dry completely, too, before trying to stack them in your cookie container. Putting a sheet of wax paper between the layers can keep them from sticking together.
