How to Ice Christmas Sugar Cookies


Baking is a tradition for many families around the world during the Christmas season. One treat that's relatively easy to make is sugar cookies, and icing can be the finishing touch. Applying it correctly will ensure that you taste the delicious icing with every bite.

Things You'll Need

  • Thick cookie icing of your choice Butter knife or small spatula
  • Allow baked cookies to cool completely, at least one hour. If the cookies are still warm, the icing will melt and drip off.

  • Hold one cookie in one of your hands.

  • Dip the knife or spatula into the icing and scoop up roughly one tablespoon of icing.

  • Spread icing in a circular motion onto the cookie. The top should be completely covered with icing. Add more icing if needed to cover.

Tips & Warnings

  • Consider using red or green icing to make the sugar cookies more festive and "Christmasy." Or use white frosting and add red or green sprinkles. Sprinkles should be added immediately after icing the cookies, in order to ensure that they stick to the icing.
