These Spiral Christmas Sugar Cookies are as fun and festive as they are delicious!
In honor of my birthday today I thought I’d bring you all a treat. Ridiculously adorable Christmas cookies! Yea, yea, what does that have to do with my birthday? Well, I love sweets and I love Christmas, so it fits!
I’ve seen variations of this type of spiral cookie for the past several years and finally got around to making them. And they were worth it! I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe from The Simple, Sweet Life that I also used for my Candy Corn Sugar Cookies and it worked so well.
Here is a visual for a few steps involved in making these cookies. Believe me, they are easier to make than you may think! Full instructions in the recipe below.
As you can see our Elf loved them too 🙂
This may be TMI for a few people but it’s good to know. Just a warning: if you as an adult eat a bit too many of these cookies (or dough-eek!), your stools will be green approximately 12-24 hours later. And if your toddler eats just two of these cookies his stools will be bright green about 12 hours later. Don’t ask why I might know this! I just wanted to save you the trouble of googling “reasons for green stools.” You’re welcome 🙂
Disclaimer: Of course this truly did happen, but if you experience green stools more often than just after eating green/red cookies, consult your physician.
