Winter Snowflake Cookies

These delicate cookies are perfect for Christmas or any winter celebration.

Winter Snowflake Cookies are so light that they will melt in your mouth. These delicate cookies are perfect for Christmas or any winter celebration. They are made with a cookie press.

Winter Snowflake Cookies are so light and delicious!  Be careful not to overcook them as they don’t take long to bake. I like to use parchment paper on my cookie sheet when I bake these.  You can also garnish them with Pearlized Sugar or White Nonpareils.  Be sure to make a lot because you will find that they get eaten quickly!  We served these at our Christmas Tea and they were a huge success.
