Quick Christmas Tree Cookies with Chocolate Icing

Making tree shaped cookies with chocolate topping

Festive treats can be quick and easy to make and cookies are fast to rustle up and decorate or leave plain if you wish. I chose a Christmas tree cutter to make these vanilla cookies but you could choose a star, angel or another shape for this time of year. For more of a magical Xmas touch, cover in melted chocolate and rainbow color sprinkles.

I have a young daughter and we sometimes make batches of cookies for school charity events - often these are made at the last minute so they need to be quick to make. This basic but delicious vanilla recipe is one that we always use and it's perfect for inexpensive but sweet last minute gifts or swaps as well.

They taste good and the chocolate topping is fun to decorate with. Enjoy making these on your own or with kids who will undoubtedly enjoy cutting out fun shapes with the cutters and putting the melted chocolate and decorative sprinkles on.
