I just love these cookies!  They taste delicious and are so cute!  They take some time to do, but I really think they are worth it!

These were originally posted on Instructables http://www.instructables.com/id/Christmas-Wreath-Cookies-1/


Here is what you need to make these awesome cookies.

  • Cookie Dough of Choice (remember, if you use a cookie dough that expands when it is baked, you could lose the wreath center)
  • Marshmallow (or regular) Fondant
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Twizzlers Pull and Peel
  • Small Red Sprinkles (or candies) of some sort
  • Corn Syrup

It's pretty easy to get started.  Make up your cookie dough of choice.  I made sugar cookies: http://www.instructables.com/id/Perfect-Sugar-Cookies/   (this made about 24 cookies)

Cut them using a large and small cookie cutter, making a wreath shape.  Bake them!

Prepare your fondant.  I made marshmallow fondant and mixed in some green and a little blue food coloring into the melted marshmallows before adding the powdered sugar.

Pull and peel your Twizzlers too!.

Once your everything is ready and your cookies have cooled, take your fondant and shape it into leaves.  I took off a little chunk, rolled it into a ball, then pinched it into a diamond shape with rounded corners.  I stuck it onto the cookie using corn syrup and then drew in the leaf veins using a toothpick.

Now you can make the bows!  Take half of a strand of Twizzlers and twist it into a simple bow and squish it so it doesn't come undone.  Stick this onto the cookie using more corn syrup.  Lastly, take your little red sprinkles and paste them on the cookie in groups of three with the corn syrup.  That's it!  It takes quite a while to make all of the leaves, but they are darn cute when they are done!
