I always look forward to cookie baking during the holidays.

In this season of hope and inspiration, magic seems to spill over into every aspect of life, including baking.

You’ll notice cookies are glitzier at Christmas time. Bigger, and often heavily decorated. (Yet not always as tasty.)

If your not a pastry chef or artist, don’t worry. You can still make inspired cookies that your friends and family will love.

Instead of leaning on decorating skills you may or may not have, why not go for height and dimension?

These simple 3D Christmas Tree Cookies look spectacular, yet require very little technique. If you can roll, cut, and stack, you are well equipped.

The key to making marvelous 3D Christmas Tree Cookies is to start with a really good roll-out sugar cookie recipe, like the one you’ll find below.

Using at least 4 sizes of star cookie cutters, cut out eight stars per tree. Then cut out a round base and 7 smaller round “connector” cookies. If you have a set of star cutters with more size options, feel free to use them all.

Lay all the cookies on cookie sheets and bake until just barely baked through.

Once the cookies are cool, whisk together a simple 2-ingredient icing and glue the stars together. Start with the round base on the bottom, followed by 2 of the largest stars with the points offset, working up to two of the smallest stars.

Glue a small round connector cookie in between each star to add height.

You can also dip candies in the icing and glue them onto the branches. I used sixlets as ornaments on my trees, but you could use any small candy you like.
