Ingredients and Supplies
  • sugar cookie dough
  • colored candy coating
  • candy writers
  • assorted Christmas cookie cutters
Bake and cool cookies. Melt an assortment of candy coating in small shallow containers. Carefully hold cookie upside down between thumb and finger and dip the very top into melted candy coating. Hold upside down and shake to remove excess coating. Turn right side up and gently tap against palm of hand to smooth out coating. After coating has set use melted candy writers or candy coating in parchment cone to pipe details on cookies. If cookie has two main colors, instead of dipping cookie use parchment cone or candy writer to fill in one area at a time. Allow coating to become firm before filling in an adjacent area.
