A Charlie Brown Christmas Tree...and More

I had trouble deciding what kind of decorated cookies I wanted to do this year.  I wanted something simple.  But not too simple.  Last year was ornaments, and the year before that was snowflakes, but I wasn't happy with the cookies either year.

So I decided to do random Christmas shapes.  Trees, snowmen, snowflakes, mittens, stockings, candy canes.  To tie them all together, they would all be outlined in black.  But I needed a focal point.  Then it hit me.  Why not a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree?

What do you think?  It was the first one, so I'll do more and they'll be better.  The girl thought it was so cute that I put a tomato on the little Christmas tree.  :-\

Anyway, here are some of the others in the collection:

There you have it.  Like I said, nothing fancy.  I'll be doing more later this week, so I'll post photos if the computer allows.



  1. Just found your blog! I think your cookies look great! it looks like you outline in black a lot (for the few posts I've read so far lol) do you find that gives you a cleaner look?

    1. Yes! Especially when using deeper colors, I think the black outline gives them a little extra "pop". Thanks for the comment!

  2. Great! I'll keep that in mind for my future cookies lol...
