Tips to Make Christmas Farm Truck Cookies

  • You’re going to need this adorable truck cookie cutter set, to start with. Basically, you can’t make these awesome Christmas truck cookies without that unless you’re way more skilled with a knife than I am! LOL!
  • Instead of using icing to make the details, if you want, you can melt some chocolate chips or use chocolate coating discs. Just be aware that if you do that, it will harden as it cools, so work fast.
  • I always recommend pulling the excess dough away from cut out cookies like gingerbread men or these Christmas farmtruck cookies. Don’t try to scrape up your cut cookies–just roll out your dough on your parchment paper and cut them there, pull the excess cookie dough away and then bake.
  • Make sure each layer of icing is dry before putting on the next. If you don’t, for example, when you put the decorations on your Christmas tree, the dots will basically melt into the green of the tree and won’t be as vivid.

This is such an easy Christmas cookie recipe. These little farmhouse truck Christmas cookies will definitely make a splash at your cookie exchange party!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes



  • 1 cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 1 cup aquafaba, about 1/2 cup or 2 eggs (I ran out of eggs so I used bean juice)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tspn vanilla extract, clear
  • 2 tspn baking powder
  • 3 cups flour


  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba (or 2 egg whites)
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla extract
  • Red gel food coloring
  • Black gel food coloring
  • Green gel food coloring


  1. Preheat your oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Cream together your sugar and oil, then add aquafaba (or eggs--I was just out of them) and the vanilla extract. Set aside.
  3. Sift together the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet in 1/3 increments, stirring between each. The cookie dough should be kind of crumbly, so don't panic.
  5. Turn the cookie dough out onto a sheet of parchment paper. Don't bother to dust the parchment paper with flour, as the cookie dough won't stick to it.
  6. Roll out the cookie dough to 1/4-inch thick.
  7. With your Christmas truck cookie cutter shape, cut out your cookies.
  8. Remove all of the excess dough from around each of the cookies. 
  9. Move the whole parchment paper sheet to the baking sheet. Do not move the cookies individually, you'll mess them upt.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes. They will not be browned at all, but you don't want them to. If they have even a hit of brown, the cookies will not be soft in the middle.
  11. Keeping the cookies on the parchment paper, transfer them to a rack to let the cookies to cool completely.
  12. Make the icing by combining all of the icing ingredients and beating until smooth.
  13. Separate out about ½ of the icing into a second bowl. Separate the remaining portion of icing into two bowls.
  14. With one of the smaller icing portions, add 8-ish drop of green food coloring and stir it until the color is the green you want. Cover this and place in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
  15. With the other smaller portion of icing, add 8-10 drops of black food coloring and stir it until the color is the grey you want. Cover this and place in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
  16. With the larger portion of icing, add 8-10 drops of red food coloring and stir it until the color is the red you want.
  17. Place the red icing in a decorating bag with your smallest round tip.
  18. Pipe an edge line all the way around the outer edge of the cookies, leaving wheel wells for the tires, a spot for the bumpers and cutting across the bottom of the Christmas trees. Immediately fill in the truck, covering the whole area. Allow this layer of icing to crust over and dry for 2-3 hours. DO NOT DISCARD THE RED ICING. Simply cover and place in the fridge
  19. With the green icing, pipe an edge line all the way around the outer edge of the Christmas trees, immediately filling in the entire Christmas tree, covering the whole area. You can discard the green icing at this point.
  20. Allow this layer of icing to dry for 2-3 hours.
  21. With the grey icing, pipe an edge line all the way around the outer edge of the bumpers and windows, immediately filling in the entire window and bumpers, adding a small round dot for the center of the wheels and a small line for the handle of the truck door. DO NOT DISCARD THE GREY ICING. Simply cover and place in the fridge
  22. Allow this layer of icing to dry for 2-3 hours.
  23. Add 10 additional drops of black food coloring to the grey icing and mix completely until the icing is black.
  24. With this black icing, pipe an edge around the tire shape and immediately fill it in.
  25. Make dots on the Christmas trees with the red icing, placing a star sprinkle on the top of the tree on top of one of those dots.
  26. Allow this layer of icing to dry for 2-3 hours.
  27. With the red icing, make some details on the bed and door and fenders.
  28. Allow this layer of icing to dry for 2-3 hours.
  29. Enjoy!
