It all started with a cookie cutter. My sister’s mother-in-law had become known for making gorgeous Santas every year, and Kim wanted to learn how and carry on the tradition. The cookie cutter was old and used so often an edge had broken off. Our brother, Steve, an orthodontist, came to the rescue by making a brand new mold of Santa, thereby preserving the cookie cutter for many more years. Even better, he made multiple molds. Thousands of cookies later, Kim could decorate Santa in her sleep.
Using red powdered food coloring, brush Santa’s nose and cheeks. Pipe on the frosting as shown.
Isn’t he so darned cute? Tuck him in a clear cellophane bag tied with a festive ribbon, and he’s ready to dazzle everyone at your holiday party.
Put him on a Christmas plate with a glass of milk beside it, and he’s sure to charm even the Jolly Old Man himself.
Thanks, Kim, for sharing your trademark cookie with us!
