“Oh Christmas Tree! Oh Christmas Tree! How We Love to EAT You!”

That’s the latest Christmas carol we’ve been singing at our house. 

The boys and I have been going a little crazy with our Christmas cookie cutters and oh boy have we had fun. Who says cookie cutters are limited to COOKIES?! My friend Holly (who loves cookie cutters as much as I love jars) even decorated her entire Christmas tree with cookie cutters one year!!   What a great idea!

Here are a few of the things we’ve come up with to increase the level of Christmas Festivity around here.

Christmas Sourdough Biscuits

Christmas Graham Crackers

Christmas Pizzas

Christmas Donuts

The boys also suggested that Christmas Quesadillas and Christmas Grilled Cheese Sandwiches would be good. Sounds good to me!! It’s always fun to eat Santa’s head.  (Yikes, I’ve been hanging around with silly little boys for too long…)

What other ideas have you thought of for using cookie cutters?!

    How adorable!

    I am excited to try your graham cracker recipe. I tried one a few months ago and they tasted good but crumbled apart. I have been collecting other recipes for it since then, but would prefer to try one that is recommended by someone I “know”. Thanks!

    my mom used to make ornaments – equal parts applesauce and cinnamon (if i remember correctly) makes a doughy substance. roll it out and use cookie cutters to cut out the shape you need. then use a straw to make a small hole at the top. let it dry over night and the tie a ribbon through the hole so it will hang. it can also be used as a Christmasy scented car freshner.

    How about cutting cheese or lunch meat with cookie cutters? :D You could even use them to sprinkle powdered sugar or other wise onto cakes in a decoration. :D

    My mom made stained glass cookies by cutting out a larger christmas sugar cookie and then a smaller shape out of the center. We filled the center with crushed hard candies of different colors and then baked them. The candy melted into a little “window.” Those were beautiful to hang on a Christmas tree, but we had to remember to use a straw to make a hole at the top before we baked them. They are cute for valentine’s day too with hearts.

    How about eggs & toast? Sometimes it’s called eggs in a nest? Cut out a shape of your slice of bread, toast it on one side in your pan, flip it and crack an egg in it. Cook until it’s done the way you like it. I have a big snowflake cookie cutter that would work. Maybe if you beat the eggs first, and added some chopped spinach or scallions, you could get them greenish and then use the tree cookie cutter. If you served ham with it, you could make many preschoolers happy: green eggs and ham but Christmas themed. Maybe I’ll make them for my big kids anyways!
