Mini Snowflake Cookies

Good things do come in small packages.

Especially in bite sized ones.After icing the cookies with thinned icing and letting them dry, I brushed them with aqua colored luster powder for a soft blush of color.

I then piped the details on the cookie and finished with a single silver dragee in the center.

For the presentation I used paper loaf pans that I never got around to using for baking cranberry bread for Thanksgiving. Another small package and good.

All lined up and ready to go with a plastic bag and twist tie that comes with the paper loaf pans.
8 cookies fit in a loaf pan perfectly.
Add a pretty ribbon to cover the twist tie and they’ll be ready for giving.

  1. beautiful work! i have several of those little loaf pans as well and hadn’t dreamed of using them for cookies; what an excellent tip!

  2. you are such an artist! They are so pretty! Merry Christmas!

  3. Hi there, I have missed you too! Things have been a little crazy. More importantly, I have been thinking of you daily since the rain started! How did you make out? It is just awful! All of those homes destroyed, so sad. I hope things get better real soon.
    As usual, your cookies are beautiful! I did my cut-out, iced cookies last night. Have been baking cookies for 2 weeks and I think I am officially done! I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year. I am keeping all those around you that lost their homes in my heart.
    Hope to get back to blogging soon.
    XOXO

  8. I just love the delicate color the lustre dust gives – so much more subtle than dying the icing itself.

    Thanks for the tip – as always, the cookies are gorgeous!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!
