I imagine many of you will be enjoying a pre-Christmas baking marathon this weekend! I’ve gathered photos of some of my favorite Christmas cookies, and I hope to offer some decorating inspiration for the week. A few of these you’ve seen, several you haven’t. I’d love to hear your favorite of the bunch! I’ll add the links to my sugar cookie recipe and decorating how-to’s at the bottom of this post.
Happy cookie decorating!
My sugar cookie recipe is HERE.
My royal icing recipe and tons of decorating tips to get you started are HERE.
A cute packaging idea is HERE.

How did you decorate the snow flakes. Did you use a stencil or do it just sraight hand thank you
Hi Edith, I did the snowflakes freehand. I have a video in this post –> https://www.glorioustreats.com/winter-wonderland-cookies/ that shows the process for snowflakes. The snowflakes are at the end of the video. Happy decorating!
Your cookies are adorable. I’m loving all the snowflake ones and even though the holidays are over I’m getting inspired to try cookie decorating and will be using all of your very helpful advice 🙂

How did you do the snow globes . . . . So cute.
Cant seem to find the link! You are soooo talented – thanks for sharing.
Do you use Royal Icing to make these cookies look fabulous. I love them!!!!
Yes, the link is at the bottom of the post, but I’ll include it here as well, https://www.glorioustreats.com/spring-cupcakes-with-cookie-toppers/
How did you make the peppermint style cookies and control the sugar on them? I’d LOVE to see a set by step on those, they’re charming!
Your wish is my command… https://www.glorioustreats.com/peppermint-candy-decorated-cookies/
I’m not too sure what you mean by “control the sugar on them”…. if you want to cover your cookies with sanding sugar (as I did in this post), simply sprinkle the cookie with sanding sugar while the icing is still wet, then shake off any excess (do this over a paper plate to catch the excess).
I absolutely adore everything about snowflakes, so that is how I found you in the first place. Those are the most beautiful snowflake cookies I've ever seen! Now looking at all of your other cookies and ideas is incredible. I am definitely a follower of Glorious Treats now!!! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us!
This post is SOOOOO inspiring. You're incredible! My kids and I have spent today decorating cookies and though ours are nowhere nearly as gorgeous as yours, it's been so wonderful and we have you to thank! 🙂
