Twelve Days of Christmas - Christmas Bauble Cookies


I spend most of December each year, absolutely covered in glitter. Sometimes it's on purpose and from a Lush bath, others times it's from the sparkly wrapping paper, decorations or Christmas ornaments. At the moment, it's because of these sparkly little cookies. If there is a time of year to go wild with the glitter and sparkle, it's Christmas. And when you mix that with cookies, well, it just doesn't get better.

I love making sugar cookies, especially at this time of year. They are the perfect treat for the house, and for giving out as small gifts to friends and family. Here is the recipe I use, it's straight forward and very tasty. I wanted to make some more this year, but nothing too fiddly, with very detailed decoration. Once you have baked and cooled your cookies, ice the main part of the bauble with the colour of your choice. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and then completely cover with edible glitter. Pick up the cookie and shake off the excess, then simply leave to dry. If you do all of this on greaseproof paper the clean up is easy, and you can keep reusing the glitter, so no waste. 

They look so pretty sitting out on the coffee table, and the catch the light beautifully. They would even make lovely tree decorations if you made them in advance. I might give that a try next year.
