DAMASK CHRISTMAS TREE COOKIES/ Elegance



My Mother was queen of the forest glade, and proudly I prospered in her shade;
For she said to me: When I am dead, you will be monarch in my stead,
And reign as I for a hundred years, a tower of triumph amid your peers,
When I crash in storm I will yield you space; son, you will worthily take my place.
 . . . . .
With a hundred others he packed me tight, and we drove to a magic city of light,
To an avenue lined with Christmas trees, and I thought: maybe I'll be one of these,
Tinseled with silver and tricked with gold, a lovely sight for a child to behold;
A glitter with lights of every hue, ruby and emerald, orange and blue,
And kiddies dancing, with shrieks of glee, one might fare worse than a Christmas tree.

Robert William Service


This elegant cookie took little time to decorate and is very simple. This was my first time using this technique. A stencil and color mist created this pretty design. By placing the cookie on a metal baking pan, the stencil stayed in place with small magnets which were purchased with the stencil. This technique creates beautiful cookies. Stencils come in oodles of designs and color mist in a variety of colors. For the baker who does not have the time to decorate cookies, this is a great alternative. Come see the process.
