Tips to Make Gnome Christmas Cookies
- When you’re making iced Christmas cookies, it’s always a good idea to start by making the icing just a little bit thicker than you think it needs to be. You can always put a dab more liquid to get it to the right consistency, but you can never take any out.
- I like to make all of my icing at one time and color them all before I start–that way I have an idea of what color I’ve got in hand to do all the decorating.
- When you’re doing the icing, use the smallest round decorating tip that you have. Or cut just the teeeniest tiniest tip off your decorating bag. You want to work in very small amounts of icing because it does spread a little and you want to be able to control that.
- If you don’t mind the colors blending a bit, you can ice one color after the other. But if you want nice clean lines between each color of icing, you have to wait a good long time between each. I like to wait at least 30 minutes, but sometimes a couple of hours.
- To make these adorable gnome cookies, you should totally use this gnome cookie cutter. It makes it so much easier to make these cookies, you know, instead of cutting them out by hand. LOL!
- I grabbed some random sprinkles to make the decorations on my gnome cookies, but you can draw some with icing even, if you don’t have anything handy.
