The Cookie Network- How to Make Christmas Cookies

The Cookie Network- How to Make Christmas Cookies is a fun look at how to use one tutorial on different cookies. The cookies don’t have to be the same shape to work. You can easily adjust and adapt the tutorial to make it work on different cookies as long as they’re basically the same type of cookie. A Santa face pattern can fit on another Santa face as long as you’re willing to adjust it a little. Same thing with the reindeer cookies. Adjust the pattern and decorate your cookies. You’ve got this so let’s get to work!

  • The larger Santa face is the cutter from Meri Meri and it’s not on their site anymore. If you have other Santa cookie cutter you can adjust this tutorial and use it on your Santa face.
  • If you’ve got a Santa cookie cutter with a body, the tutorial probably won’t work.

  • Same thing with the reindeer cookies. The tutorial will fit both cookies once you adjust it a little bit.
