Every year, my coworkers and I participate in a departmental cookie competition. Since I love holiday food decorating, I plan out my contribution months ahead of time. I always aim to win the “Best Decorated” category. In years past, I’ve made mini-gingerbread houses and 3D animals, so I decided to go with another three-dimensional offering this year.
I made these sugar cookie and gingerbread standup Christmas trees with a surprise inside. Let’s call them “filled Christmas tree cookies.”
