Make a Christmas Cookie Tree

Updated on December 24, 2012

A Holiday Gift Guide for Making a 3D Christmas Tree from Cookies

One new Christmas tradition that I'd like to start with my family is making a Christmas Cookie Tree or an edible tree made from series of stacked cookie stars.

I discovered the cookie tree while working on cookie recipe lenses for the Great Christmas Cookie Recipe Challenge and making my lens for Piparkakut - The Best Gingerbread Recipe Ever.

Making a 3 dimensional Christmas trees from cookie stars (or snowflakes) is very simple, but you end up with a stunning effect. You just need a series of graduated star cookie cutter patterns or a collection of star shaped cookie cutters to cut out the cookies from your favorite holiday cookie recipe.

There are Christmas Cookie Tree kits with all of the cookie cutters and decorating tools and some kits that even come with the cookies already pre-baked.

Read on to discover how to start your own new Christmas tradition by making cookie trees for decorations and to give as gifts. Get a set of graduated star cookie cutters and start making your own 3D cookie trees.

Assembling the Christmas Cookie Tree with Royal Icing

Once the graduated star or snowflake cookies have been cut, baked and cooled they need to be carefully assembled to complete the cookie tree.

The trick is to be able to look at all of the cookies, especially if several sizes have been used and determine the sizes of the cookies from smallest to largest. Lining the cookies up first make make it easier to accurately assemble the tree.

To assemble, simply glue each layer with royal icing in sequence from the largest cookie at the bottom to the smallest cookie at the top.

Finish decorating the cookie tree with a dusting of powdered sugar and other assorted decorations (like M&M's) as desired.

Royal Icing Recipe

  • Ingredients:
  • * 3 tablespoons powdered egg whites or meringue powder
  • * 1 pound (4 cups) sifted confectioners' sugar
  • * 1/3 cup water (6 tablespoons)
  • Directions:
  • 1. Combine powered egg white or meringue powder with sugar. Add water a bit at a time.
  • 2. Beat all ingredients with a mixer until stiff peaks form. This may take 7 to 10 minutes.
  • 3. Keep icing covered until ready to use.
  • Makes 2 1/2 cups of icing.

The Chef's Kitchen with a Holiday Cookie Tree

As part of the Philadelphia Magazine Guide to Holiday Entertaining, Chef John Gallagher of the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College shows us how make a traditional Holiday Cookie Tree.

Make a Norwegian Kransekake - Almond Ring Cake

As seen in the video clip above with Chef John Gallagher, another version of a cookie tree is the Almond Ring Cake, Kransekake or Norwegian Wedding Cake.

In this cookie tree, the almond paste cookie or rings are made from a basic recipe of almond flour, sugar and egg whites in the traditional recipe, so Kransekake can be made as a gluten free recipe.

The dough is then piped into special Kransekake rings or forms, baked and then carefully assembled and decorated with small Norwegian flags, marzipan fruit and wrapped candy to make the traditional 18 layer cake.

As noted by Chef Gallagher, the cake is often assembled around a bottle of wine which is drunk after the cake is eaten.

If you are making your own Christmas cookie tree, you may do like Chef Gallagher and decorate the rings differently, in Christmas colors.
