Snow Globe, Moose and Snowflake Sugar Cookies

I'm loving how this year's batch of holiday sugar cookies turned out.  I think they're too cute to eat.   What do you think?

The snow globe I totally copied  from the Martha Stewart Show.  The episode aired last December and ever since then I've wanted to make them.

You can find the moose cookie cutter as part of a set sold by IKEA, available only during the holidays.  My friends Anne-Marie and Henning gave the set to me and I adore all baking-related gifts.  When I was in Norway last month I saw the coolest thing at the supermarket.   Flavored powdered sugar in chocolate and strawberry!  To frost the moose I made royal icing using the chocolate version.  What's so great is that I didn't need to tint the icing brown.  On top of that it had a really nice chocolate taste.

And the snowflake?  I  haven't made them in a long while so I thought it was about time to make them again.  Especially when they're finished off with silver dragées.

Stay tuned for more holiday cookies.....


  1. These are fantastic! I love the moose! I had no idea that powdered sugar came in flavors, I wish I could find something like that in the US - what a great change of pace!
