Christmas Tree Cookie Platter

Let’s continue with the simple Christmas cookie designs, shall we? This cookie platter can feed a crowd {or a couple very sugar craving holiday goers} and have a wow-factor by arranging them just right.

There are only three simple cookie shapes here that I’m sure even the most occasional baker has in the back of the cupboard.

Tree shape?

All together the platter was made with 30 cookies: 25 trees, 4 ornaments and 1 star. Of course you should make extras in case you want a fuller tree, or like to munch as you bake. Someone has to taste test, right? And none of them needs to be painstakingly decorated. I used only five colors and made this gingerbread dough by Sweetopia. Oh my heck, it’s soooo good!

I think I’ll try this project with the kids. By putting their own spin on the individual cookies, it will be great to see how it all comes together once they are piled up. With all the baking I have planned from now until Christmas Eve, it will be nice to have some helpers for a change.
