First of all, prepare the base by following the SHORT PASTRY procedure

Finally, place it covered with cling film in the fridge for 40 minutes.

Then roll out the dough on a perfectly floured work surface to a thickness of 4/5 mm, making sure that the dough is very cold and comes off the surface:

Then cut the molds and arrange the shapes of the same size in the same pan previously lined with parchment paper. At this stage you can make the holes at the top, in order to be able to hang them on the tree

Put the trays in the fridge for 15 minutes, recompose the scraps of dough and place in the freezer for a few minutes before rolling out new dough.

Bake 1 tray at a time for 12 minutes at 180 °. If you have a pan with smaller items, shorten the time to 9 – 10 minutes.

The biscuits must be clear and absolutely not browned!

Finally, remove from the oven and leave to cool completely for at least 3 hours.

Finally, prepare the ice by mixing sugar, egg white and lemon drops. If you want to see the illustrated passages, look at the article ROYAL ICE

Mix well without leaving lumps, make sure it is thick and write, doing the test by lifting a spoon.

If adding a pinch of icing sugar, or on the contrary 1 drop of lemon, until you get the right consistency!

royal icing for christmas cookies

My advice is to mount the sac a poche each with its spout And fill with ice immediately, and seal the tip of the nozzle with a toothpick. This way the product won't dry out and you can work stress-free!

If you only have one spout and you have to work with 1 bag a few at a time, don't worry, cover each bowl with a contact film and proceed to make all the cookies, completing one color at a time.

Decorated Christmas cookies

To decorate the individual systematic biscuits on a firm and spacious worktop.

When using multiple colors: Always start with white, let it dry completely (30 minutes / 1 h) and then add new colored elements, let it dry again and finally add the third color and so on! So you can make more cookies at the same time

How to decorate the Christmas people

First of all start with the eyes, two dots, dropping a pearl of ice for each point without squeezing too much. Then draw the half moon mouth.

Finally draw the scarf on the neck, then the dots on the torso and finally the hands and feet:

First of all eyes and mouth as above, then make the apron, starting from the outside of the shape, first draw the neck fastenings, then the circle on the chest, then a straight line that cuts the bust in half and finally the half circle. Finally, make the scallops along the edges.

Then only when the white outline is perfectly dry (about 1 hour) can you proceed to fill the inside with the red polka dots and a good part of the product that you will take care to spread with the help of a toothpick!

Decorated Star Cookies, Decorated Christmas House, Decorated Christmas Reindeer

First of all, always start with white. In the case of the Star and the Reindeer, I recommend that you make straight lines by lifting them from the biscuit as if you would like to pull them into the void and finally hook them directly to the opposite end! it will be easier to make them straight!

star, house, reindeer christmas cookies

In the reindeer, first let the white parts dry (at least 30 minutes) and then add the red nose

Then in the cottage, after making doors and windows, then add the snow only on the roof. Let it dry (at least 30 minutes). Then color the elements green, let them dry (at least 30 minutes) then add the reds and complete the white lawn inserts, only when the rest is completely dry!

Then draw the bow, drawing two drops in the upper right corners of the cross and two small lines ending with a curl in the lower right corners.

Decorated Christmas tree cookies

In this case I chose 4 decorations, always remember the rule of using the colors at different times, and only when the basic decorations have dried, proceed with the additional ones.

For example, in the tree with the lights, first make the white stripes, let it rest for 30 minutes, then add the colors.

In the case of colored polka dots, since they are spaced apart, you can only dry them for a few minutes.

If, on the other hand, you have to fill as in the case of the green tree, first of all outline the edges of the triangle, then fill with a lot of green and spread with the help of a toothpick:
