Anyone who has been around me for any amount of time knows I love the color red. Red and white together makes my heart happy especially at Christmas time. So when I started planning ‘Christmas in July’ I knew I had to make a set of red and white Christmas cookies. For some reason all I could think of was Mele Kalikimaka with red Hibiscus cookies. The unique red flower on a white cookie base was just what I had in mind.How to Make Festive Mele Kalikimaka Cookies thebearfootbaker.comThe fun carefree look of the hibiscus cookies makes it a great addition to any summer cookie platter. And now we can enjoy it in the middle of winter!

Flower Cookie Cutter-I used the one by Whisked Away Cutters but Sweet Sugar Belle taught us to use a sand dollar or a Clover. Or you can use a Five Petal Rose Cutter that is made for fondant just make sure your dough is not frozen so it won’t damage the cutter.

If you want to make the Santa Cookie in this set you can find it here in the Mele Kalikimaka Set.

UPDATE: If you want to know what cookies cutters I used for the other cookies in this set I have made a list for you. You don’t have to buy them from places I have linked to, but I wanted to show you which ones I used because people have been asking. Any surfboard, swim trunks, flip flop or drss cutter will work.

  1. With the red icing, pipe a flower petal.
  2. Don’t outline the bottom of the petal yet.

You can make the petals touch or leave a little space in between them because we all know that nature makes things unique and different.

The smaller one’s were made without the second petal piped inside the larger petal so they don’t really look like a hibiscus flower. They are cute but are lacking that unique hibiscus look.
