I’ve always loved looking at Christmas trees that have gourmet additions like strands of popcorn & cranberries. We’ve never done that sort of thing, but this year I opted to try a cookie ornament for our tree: Cinnamon- Sugar Stars.
This cinnamon-tainted dough is rolled out and stamped with stars. Use a straw to poke holes in the top of the stars for easy ribbon stringing.
A light coat of egg white is brushed onto each cut-out cookie. It acts as the ‘glue’ that will hold on the cinnamon-sugar sprinkle.
The stars are baked ’till a golden brown.
Festive ribbon is strung through each cookie to create ornaments.
If you don’t wish to put them on your big tree, consider putting together a miniature tree with cookie ornaments to keep in your kitchen. Be careful if you have dogs or other creatures that might find these delicious!
