cookie tree

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
anyone made one of these before? How is it done? What holds the cookies together?

Are you talking about the graduated stars trees?
If so, after each star cookie is iced and dried, you stack them and use royal icing to glue.

I just bought a set to make these. I believe it has 10 cutters.

Do I make two of each size to get the height?

I've never done one of these.

It looks like that. I'd say you have the right idea.

I believe the pic on here (in this thread) shows the tree made with two of each size. The regular one calls for just one of each, though.
I got these cutters only recently, and I cannot wait to make some trees!

I made one a few years back...OK...15 years ago.
Bought the set and have since lost it.

I now make them mini trees with the star cookie cutters that I have now. I have several different sizes and make either 2 or 3 of each sizes. They are really fun to make. I have decorated them in green icing and white icing with sparkles on the tips.

This looks like a great idea. I might try to make one this year.

I knew if I looked I would find something on here about that very tree!!

What recipes do you recommend for making it (cookies and icing)

About how tall do you think it is when all done?

Thanks!

Hey there, I dug up my cookie tree kit and the instructions are for 2 of each size, regular sugar cookie dough ( gingerbread,rice krispies) and it shows the trees decorated , green with white "snow icing" ,all white decorated as snowflakes, red bow on top, and rice krispies with sprinkles.
All 3 use royal icing to "glue" together.
I am making them for my "group" and putting them in buckets with small cookies & candies around them. tied up with cello-paper and ribbon.
In my mind they will be wonderful... icon_rolleyes.gif
Have a Merry Christmas.

I found my @ Old Time Pottery, but any cake store or Craft store(at least by me, carry them) They are a Wilton set and when I bought them (when??? last year the year before) they were $8.00.
There are a lot of cookies (20) and it make for a great presentation either on a Christmas plate or on a cake stand.
My daycare kids decorated one last year and then we had the fun of eating it.

I got mine for 6.99 at the Reimans Outlet(Taste of Home ,Reiman Publications Visitors Center.) I live near there.

It came with 10 cutters,two disposable pastry bags,two cheapie plastic tips and vague instructions. Not a bad deal!

I'm thinking they are available through their Country Store(Taste of Home)
