COOKIE TREES

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make a cookie tree? I saw them on a site ( Ithink it was The Cookie Ladies) last week and thought they would be great gifts for Christmas. Thanks!

Thankyou kiddiekakes. But I should have explained myself better. Not the traditional ones. THere is an assortment of cookies stuck onto a cone shape to resemble a tree. Just wanted to know if anyone knows how to do these?

Kiddiekakes has the right idea... I made several of this kit myself.. Easy to do, but a lot of baking for this one... here is the kit:

Ahh.. I would do those just like my cake truffle tree (in my photos), and use melted chocolate to attach the cookies to the cone (that has been covered in wax paper, of course icon_smile.gif )

king - I know exactly what you're talking about, and I'm glad you brought this up because I was wondering the same thing. I'm doing a holiday booth and thought this would be a great display for my table. Here's the link to the site where I think you saw it.

I'd have to guess that it is a styrofoam cone and that the cookie bags are pinned into the cone for easy removal. I think this is such an awesome way to display a large amount of cookies in a fairly small space. Also I'm sure that you would have to weight and/or secure the cone somehow. I hope this helps!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I think you asked how to do a cookie tree. It looks like the Cookie ladies may have used skewers stuck into the styro cone and hung the cookies in multiples on each skewer by the string that closes each of the cookie packages.

We start with a 1 or 2 foot tall grapevine tree
... trim it with tiny sparkling lights
... cover it with individually wrapped cookies
... add a gold elastic cord with scissors
... then top it with an ornament!

this is from thier website - it seems to me that they are using a grapevine tree and probably hot glueing the bag onto the tree then giving the scissors to cut the cookie off when you want to eat one.

Just another idea you could do the cookies on a wreath as well and cut them off. Thanks guys I needed this, this morning now I am in a creative mood.

From looking at their website, it says they use grapevine trees. It also says that they provide a scissors with the tree for guests to cut their favors off with. To me, that sounds like they just tie the cookies in the bag to the grapevine tree and don't use a styrofoam base. It would be made out of grapewines or "twigs". Make sense?
