I have JUST the thing for you...a Christmas Tree Cookie Platter. 
It is seriously SO cute!

Tree cookies are layered and stacked in a larger tree shape. The edges are adorned with colorful ornament cookies, and strung across the center are cookie "twinkle lights." Make it as big or as small as you want. Stack the cookies in a couple of layers, or stack it high. It's really perfect for any size crowd.

perfectly iced circle cookies

Y'all...I've been decorating cookies for almost 20 years and piping circles still gives me nightmares. Never fear!!! I have an easy technique that's much quicker and makes for the perfectly iced circles.

I mean, seriously....take a good look at that circle. After years of ugly, wonky, shaky circle piping, I could stare at that ALL day.

Can we talk for a second about those twinkle light cookies?!?!?! Oh my gosh. They're so tiny and cute (and easy to eat 20 in one sitting). I think I need an excuse to make these more often.
