white & silver cookies

Use holiday cookie cutters to shape up some festive sweets for a cheerful charcuterie board or gifts for your neighbors, friends and more!
Step 1

Follow your recipe and instructions to make the dough for your cookies and chill in the fridge.

Step 2

Roll out chilled cookie dough onto parchment paper, about ¼" [.64 cm] thick. Using cookie cutter, cut into ornament, snowflake and tree shapes. Transfer each cookie to parchment-lined baking sheet pan. Chill to firm.

Step 3

Bake at 350° until cookies begin to brown on edges. Cool completely. For best results, store at room temperature overnight.

Step 4

Mix Royal Icing to a thick consistency. Cover and set aside.

Step 5

Roll white fondant 1/8" [.32 cm] thick. Use cookie cutters to cut the same shapes. Apply a very thin layer of royal icing to face of cookie, then attach fondant cutouts.

Step 6

Fill a piping bag with #2 round tip and icing. Pipe lines or other designs for snowflake and ornament details.

Step 7

Embellish with Silver sugar pearls.

Step 8

For the Silver trees, spray with a thin layer of shimmering Color Mist®, then sprinkle Silver sanding sugar.

Step 9

Display cookies in a decorative holiday tin for the sweetest treat.
