12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 3 – Christmas Tree Press Cookies

Simple Green Christmas Tree Cookies with Sprinkles

If you have a cookie press, you must make these. If you don’t, borrow one. Once you make these, you will go out and get one – we promise.

Press cookies have been a staple in our kitchens for years now. This year we used a Wilton Cookie Press  — about $25 at most craft/baking/kitchen stores.

These Christmas Trees are super simple and a no-brainer for the holiday season. They are prefect little bit sizes of cookie perfection. Young and old will flock to your Christmas trees. Enjoy.
