Sugar Cookie Holiday Wreath Cookies
Turn store-bought sugar cookie dough and create custom Christmas Wreath cookies. Top with perfect green buttercream and some candies to top it all off.
Servings: 12 cookies
- Your favorite recipe for sugar cookies enough to make 12
- 1 stick butter softened
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 4-5 tbsp milk
- ¼ tsp Kelly green gel food coloring
- Multicolored candies
Once you prepare your cookie dough, roll it on a floured surface so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. With a cookie cutter, cut out a wreath shape – we had a cookie cutter that also cut out a circle on the inside. If you don’t have one, you’ll use two different-sized circular cookie cutters to achieve the look.
Bake and allow to cool completely.
With an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase to high. Once the ingredients start mixing, add food coloring. Mix until buttercream is smooth and forms semi-stiff peaks.
Using a frosting bag and Wilton tip #32, frost each cookie then add multicolored candies (they will act as the Christmas lights for your wreath!).
