    Easy & Fun

    Emma Pancoast from Manchester, NH

    It seems there's never enough time anymore, so a recipe that cuts right to the fun stuff can never be bad! We had a good time, and each child got to decorate her own. Eating them was almost as much fun, too!

    I made this recipe with my two youngest both girls Kathryne age 8 and Sarah age 5. The loved helping me mix all the ingredients as well as decorating too. This is a good afternoon baking recipe to keep the children occupied not to mention to make the kitchen smell very nice and inviting.

    joel tedder from FORT DODGE, IA

    whenever it is time to bake something that has a shape or needs decorated, I call on the kids for that task. But then it really isn't a task, because they love spending time in the kitchen.

    Had a terrifc time decorating these with my son's friends. We had a cookie tree decorating play-date and each of the 3 boys made their own trees! They decorated smaller cookies to eat afterwards so they could bring home their masterpieces. We all had a lot of fun.

    This is an excellent recipe. You can vary the outcome by using all kinds of different toppings, and you can also shape it like a "club" for bridge or card parties.

    Christmas Tree Cookies

    Sonia Martinez from HONOMU, HI

    I made these recently to add to the rest of the homemade goodies I include in gift baskets for several friends and neighbors. They were incredibly easy and it was hard to not eat them instead of saving for the baskets. I will definitely make these again next year.

    Holiday Tree Cookies

    Barbara Thomas from MILWAUKEE, WI

    I started making these when my children were small. They always thought the shape of the tree was so neat looking especially when I put the colored sugars on them. Extremely easy to make. I change the shape with all the holidays.

    Holiday Tree Cookie

    Linda Cogswell from DELMONT, PA

    We tinted coconut and made several different colored trees. We also used a straw before baking and poked a hole in the top of the tree and attached pretty ribbon with curls to hang from our chistmas tree. The only problem is keeping the family away from "nibbeling" the cookies on the tree left for Santa! We had fun with this recipe!
