Christmas Drum Cookies (with a surprise inside)

Today is day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas over on Sweet Sugar Belle.  Callye asked me to participate in a special cookie collection celebrating the 12 days of Christmas (following the classic song).  I chose 12 drummers drumming… and this is what I came up with.

Earlier this year I made some pumpkin cookies with candy inside and I’ve been wanting to play with the idea for other holidays.  I thought a drum would be the perfect shape to fill with candy.  I started with my gingerbread cookie recipe, covered the tops with royal icing, added some bakers twine and gold dragees, and filled them with mini M&M’s.  I think they turned out pretty cute!

Head on over to Sweet Sugar Belle for the full tutorial on these fun cookies.

    Super Cute. Is the baker’s twine actually okay to eat? So cool.

      No, the bakers twine is not edible and would need to be removed. It would come off quite easily, as it is only attached with a small dot of icing.

    But I don’t understand why the cookie drum with the lid off is constructed differently than the ones with the lids on. The string is only attached to three cookies, not to four. which way should these be constructed?
