Creating the perfect Christmas cookie is not just about getting the ingredients right but also about choosing the perfect shape for the occasion. Popular Christmas cookie shapes include angels, reindeer, snowmen, Christmas trees, candy canes or even just a round shape with fluted edges or patterns on top. For the best results when shaping your Christmas cookies, cookie cutters definitely come in handy.
For those who are without the help of an Xmas cutter, not to worry- you can shape them yourselves! If you’re trying to create a perfect circle, then it’s easy enough to use an egg ring or the rim of a glass. Circles can be turned into Santa faces, baubles or melted snowmen with icing and marshmallows.
It can be more tricky to create your angels, candy canes and reindeer. However, one way to get around it is to cut around a template or stencil. Just print or draw your shapes and then place them onto the cookie dough and cut around. Voila!
If you want to get more creative, there are a couple of methods you can use. The first method involves folding and moulding aluminium foil into the desired shape and glueing the ends together to create your cutter.
Of course, having cookie cutters will give you perfect edges and a better outline of your desired shape. For baking with the kids, homemade may be a fun way to get them involved, but a holiday cookie gift will look flawless when using a pre-made cookie cutter.
