Martha by Mail ~ Tree & House Cookie Cutters


Imagine a charming little house surrounded by an evergreen forest of trees, all in delicious cookie form.  These copper cutters from Martha by Mail feature a House & Tree that can be adapted any number of ways.  The facade of the little, quaint cottage can be adorned with a welcoming doorway, a set of whimsical windows and a sweet, snowy rooftop.  The giant evergreen tree can be festooned with lovely multi-colored lights or Christmas ornaments in royal icing.  Whatever design or style you choose, make sure to bake plenty of cookies because everyone is going to want one.




As you can see, every facade of these tiny homes is unique.  A doorway invites everyone to take a big bite and the rooftops are heavily covered in either snowy royal icing or sugary icicles.  You can even add a wreath & several "ornaments" if you like.



The tree on the left is flooded in white royal icing, suggesting a recent snowfall, and is festooned with multicolored lights.  The cookie on the right is simply outlined in a forest green shade and is flocked with fine sanding sugar.


Both cookies here are flooded in white or green royal icing.  The cookie on the left is left to dry completely before piping colorful dot ornaments haphazardly in various shades.  The cookie on the right has dot ornaments that are piped while the base icing is still wet, thereby embedding them.

A single cookie wrapped in a large cellophane bag, tied with a pretty ribbon makes a wonderful gift.

Happy Holidays!
