Christmas Tree Cookie with Buttercream Icing – Best Cheap Party Snack Food Recipe

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer on low to medium speed. (Use the paddle attachment). Mix until thoroughly incorporated – for about one minute.
  2. Add the vanilla extract and the eggs slowly and mix. Scrape down the bowl with your spatula at least once and mix again.
    Sift your dry ingredients together. (Flour and salt). Add all of the flour mixture to the bowl. Mix on low speed for 3o seconds. When the dough clumps around the paddle attachment it’s ready. It’s also important at this stage not to over mix the dough.
  3. Roll the dough out between 2 large pieces of parchment paper. Place on a baking sheet and into the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour. Roll out the dough further if you need to, and cut out cookie shapes. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Re-roll scraps and repeat.
  4. Put cookie dough shapes back into the fridge for 10 minutes to 1 hour to chill again. They will then hold their shape better when baked.
  5. Preheat your oven to 350°F or 176°C. Bake cookies for 8-12 minutes or until the edges become golden brown. The baking time will depend on the size of your cookie. Let cookies cool to room temperature and decorate

Making icing:

  1. Add all ingredients to a mixer bowl, and using a paddle attachment, blend well together.


  1. Turn your cookie so that the tip of the tree is closest to you. Using a #18 star tip, start from the bottom of the Christmas tree and pipe a line of shells. Note: Different sized star tips work as well (i.e. #’s 14-21). The larger the number, the larger the shell will be. Cover the entire cookie. Place a sugar star on top and enjoy!

*Adhere some ribbon to the back of the cookie with royal icing to use your cookies as Christmas tree ornaments!
