“Dear Santa, I’ve been a very good girl this year. Hopefully, when you see the beautifully decorated Tiffany Snowflake Cookies that I baked for you, the cookies will give you a hint of what I would like for Christmas this year. I would be thrilled to find a little Tiffany Blue box the same color as these cookies under the Christmas tree with something that sparkles inside.”
If you decide to leave these snowflake cookies for Santa like I will be doing, I can’t guarantee that you or I will find a Tiffany Blue box under the tree on Christmas morning. However, I do think the cookies will be very much appreciated by whoever eats them.
I’m baking dozens of various of cookies this holiday season to give to friends and neighbors and as special “thank you” gifts. I will be placing the Tiffany snowflake cookies into individual cellophane packages, tying them with a ribbon, and adding pretty gift tags. I will be giving some of the pretty packages to our friends who come to the annual Christmas open house party that my husband and I have each year.
I have made the same sugar cookie recipe for years. It is crisp, not overly sweet, and doesn’t spread so you can have a perfectly shaped cookie after it is baked. Once the sugar cookies are baked and cooled, they are covered with royal icing and decorated with sprinkles and candy pearls.
About 3 dozen 4 – 4 1/2 inch cookies or 5 dozen 2 – 2 1/2 inch cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- 1 c. butter, softened
- 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 2 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
Cream the softened butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and then add the egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Slowly add the flour, baking soda and crème of tartar and mix well. Gather into a ball, divide into four discs, wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate for two hours or until firm.
Roll out one disc at a time between two sheets of plastic wrap to about an 1/8 inch thick. Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap and cut out the snowflakes. Remove the cut outs from the plastic wrap and place about an inch apart on a Silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes to firm up. Gather all the scrapes, form into a disc, cover with plastic wrap, chill until firm and repeat. Bake for about 8 minutes or until light brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and cool on the cookie sheets for a couple of minutes to firm up then use a spatula and place them on cooling racks.
- 1 lb. (about 4 c.) powdered sugar
- 3 Tbsp. Meringue powder
- 6 Tbsp. warm water (additional Tbsp. or two for thinning)
Making sure that bowl and beaters are free from any oil, add the sugar and meringue powder to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix slowly until just combined. Add the water and beat slowly for two minutes . Then beat on medium speed until light and fluffy about 6 to 8 minutes more. For the right consistency, I followed the 10 second guideline of dragging a knife about an inch deep into the icing and then counting slowly to 10. If it smooths over in 10 seconds, it can be used for piping and flooding.
To color the icing, I barely dipped a toothpick into blue sky gel coloring and mixed it into the icing until it was combined. If you wish, you can flavor the icing with a clear extract or a little lemon juice. Just be sure that whatever you add to the icing mixture doesn’t contain any oil.
There are many videos online about decorating cookies with royal icing that I found very helpful. I iced my cookies with Tiffany Blue royal icing using a squeeze bottle and let them dry overnight. The next day, I used white royal icing in a piping bag with a number 2 tip for my snowflake design. While the design was wet, I added the candy pearls with tweezers and then added sprinkles, shaking off the excess and let them dry completely before storing them in an airtight container.
This was the first year that I decorated my cookies with royal icing. In years past, I have made a glaze of powdered sugar, milk and a little lemon juice and painted the glaze on with paint brushes. Either way, the cookies are a fun project to share with your family. Just remember to tell yourself, they are only cookies and you can eat all your mistakes.
Whether you decide to make Tiffany snowflake cookies to leave for Santa Claus or to give to your friends, I hope you will give them a try. If you don’t have time to decorate them as I have, the sugar cookies are a tasty treat served plain with a glass of milk.

They do look beautiful – perhaps you should hang some on the tree for your party 😉
Thank you Mad Dog, for your nice compliment. I think next year I might make some for ornaments.
Wouldn’t that be truly lovely (if you) left a Tiffany’s snowflake cookie (and) Santa left a blue box behind. Indeed, I think the sales of butter, flour & sugar would go through the roof (if it) were so!
Such a very lovely treat, the prettiest cookies by far!
That is so funny Allie. I think there would definitely be a stampede to the grocery stores if it worked. 🙂 Thank you for your nice compliment…I’m glad you like how I decorated the cookies.
They are so pretty! I hope Santa takes note: you definitely deserve a blue Tiffany box under the Christmas tree 🙂
Thank you Kay, I’m pleased with the way the cookies turned out. Thank you for your compliment. I don’t know…I don’t think Santa can be bribed very easily. 🙂
I hope you find a little Tiffany Blue box under the Christmas tree with something that sparkles inside.
Your snowflake cookies with the Tiffany blue icings are so perfect and the packaging gorgeous. If I got one I would put it on display and request another unpacked cookie one for eating.
I’m glad you like the cookies Norma, thank you for your compliment. I’m sending all my guests home with two Tiffany cookies for their eating pleasure…wish you were nearby. Even though I have six trees around the house, I know how busy Santa is and think he will only be stopping at homes where young children will be eagerly awaiting his arrival. 🙂
Karen, your snow flakes are so very pretty!
Hi Angie, I’m happy to know you like how I decorated the snowflakes…thank you.
Beautiful cookies and that icing is the most gorgeous colour. I have just bought some snowflake cutters so will give these a try!
Hi Laura, I appreciate your visit and nice compliment. I know you will enjoy using your snowflake cutters…they do make pretty cookies.
What a delightful idea and so elegant! I like the cookies as much as an actual present from Tiffany’s!
Hi Meg, The cookies were so much fun to make…especially since they are all a little different. I’m hoping my guests will enjoy their little gifts.
Just gorgeous! I always glaze mine with the powdered sugar mixture, but I must try the royal icing. It’s so much prettier! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for your visit and nice compliment, Susan. This was the first time of decorating the sugar cookies with royal icing and I’m hooked. I was like you and used a glaze that I painted on. I’ll still do it for certain cookies but I think the royal icing is easier.
Asolutely gorgeous and fingers crossed that Santa takes the hint!
Thank you Tanya, for your nice compliment. It never hurts to drop a hint or two. 🙂
Hi Karen, These are beautiful! Tiffany blue is my color, and my daughter just received a tiny blue box from The Boyfriend, who is now The Fiancé, so these cookies would be perfect for our Christmas celebration! Thank you for the inspiration. I think our party guests must have been thrilled to receive this gift bag. And I am loving your reindeer and Santa! Linda
I’m glad that you like the cookies, Linda and appreciate your nice compliment. I agree with you, these cookies would be perfect for your celebration. I have a collection of beautiful Santas and thought this little reindeer would be perfect with this little one.
I didn’t believe a biscuit could look so beautiful. I wouldn’t be dunking it in my tea! Do you get them free when you purchase an expensive diamond from Tiffany’s. I think the biscuit would be the highlight for me.
Thank you for your kind words David, they are very much appreciated. Wouldn’t that be fun to get a pretty cookie with your Tiffany diamond. 🙂
Beautiful pictures and lovely cookies. My mother used to use a powdered sugar glaze and she would paint beautiful designs on the cookies with food coloring and a variety of tiny artist paint brushes. She passed away this last summer so this Christmas is bittersweet… your column reminded me of the fun times with my mother making cookies. Thank you!. Lee
Hi Lee, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. I’m happy to know that my post brought back nice memories of you and your mother making cookies together. I used to paint my cookies like your mother but it is time consuming.
Such beautiful cookies! I am not a cookie baker by any means, but I am baking some for our new neighbors and they would certainly be impressed with these! Thanks for this lovely recipe.
Hi Karen, I appreciate your nice compliment. I have used this particular recipe for years and really like it because the cookies don’t spread when they bake so they retain their nice shapes.
Very pretty cookies..
Happy Holidays to you..
Thank you Monique. I appreciate your nice compliment especially since you bake such lovely cookies yourself. I hope you your holidays are wonderful as well.
These sure are very pretty Karen. Those blue boxes are my absolute favourite too; I must have been a good girl over the last few years!
I’ve been baking Christmas cookies too, for gifts and I’m definitely going to bake these gorgeous cookies this year. Who can resist that very festive colour combo. Very professional.
Hi Eva, It is nice to know that you have been a very good girl and have a collection of those blue boxes. 🙂 I appreciate your compliment and hope you and your friends will enjoy the cookie recipe.
After your luck with Santa, I’d best whip up a batch and hurry! Beautiful. Normally I do not have patience for cookies–very labor intensive.
Hi Diane, It does take a little while to decorate the cookies but I believe the end result was well worth the time. Thank you for your compliment.
I am confused. Has Santa already been to you house?!! You must have been a very good girl because that box is larger than earring size!!! How many cookies did you leave him? These are so beautifully done, I love them.
Hi Maria, I’m happy to know that you like the cookies and thank you for your nice compliment. Sorry to have confused you…Santa has not stopped by yet just a little artistic license on my part. 🙂
Reblogged this on Recipe Reblog.
Karen, lovely cookies – and because of my silly plastered leg and not being able to cook/bake for now, I will make those in the New Year when we return from Bangkok. Maybe for Valentine’s Day???? Carina 🙂
Hi Carina, I thank you for your nice compliment. I hope your trip to Bangkok will be fabulous and I think Valentine’s Day would be a perfect time to bake sugar cookies.
Whoa, girl, yo have outdone yourself. I’m thinking these cookies, as well as all the other wonderful goodies you’ll have, would make it worthwhile to fly to NH for your holiday party. Hope Santa comes through with the little blue box. Of course, it should have something very big in it!
Hi Linda, I appreciate your kind words. Wish there weren’t so many miles between us, I know you would enjoy our Christmas open house.
Besides her wedding dress, I think the next thing a girl dream of is that blue box lol. I really love how you dusted the edges of the snowflakes with sugar. It gives them such a pretty sparkle.
Hi Ruth, I have to agree with you about most girls dreaming of one of those blue boxes. I’m glad you like the way I decorated the snowflake cookies…thank you!
Beautiful and done with such finesse. A real Christmas Cracker, if you will forgive the pun.
Thank you Conor, for your nice compliment. As for your pun, I would think nothing less from my Irish friend. 🙂
Oh, those are just too pretty! And displayed so lovely, I’m sure Santa will take notice!
Hi Jan, I don’t know if Santa will have a chance to stop by on his busy evening fulfilling all the wishes of the little children eagerly awaiting his visit…but it doesn’t hurt to leave him something pretty just in case. 🙂
The most beautiful color on the planet is Tiffany Blue and you have captured it in your beautiful and edible works of art. This is pure artistry!!!
Thank you so much Tin Man, for your kind words. I agree with you about how beautiful the color Tiffany Blue is…it is a lovely and calming color.
Well after making such beautiful cookies with all that love and attention to detail, I sure think that Santa owes you a Tiffany box with something sparkly in it for Christmas! Gorgeous cookies and presentation, Karen.
Thank you Betsy, for your nice compliment. I hope Santa thinks the same way that you do. 🙂
It worked! Those cookies were pretty enough to get swapped out for the Tiffany sparkly – nice. These are just too pretty to eat (although my mouth dropped looking at the one in the gift bag since I thought the gift tag was another decorated cookie). Kind of reminds me of the sugar cookies that really couldn’t be eating that my daughter made one year. She wanted to double the recipe to make enough to pass out to friends & had distributed them all over before getting a call from her best friend asking if they were for decoration or to eat because she’d just about broken a tooth on one. Niki only got as far as doubled the sugar in the recipe & forgot about doubling all the rest. They were sort of like trying to bite off a chunk of hockey puck.
Thank you Diane, I would love to exchange snowflake cookies for something sparkly any day. 🙂 Oh dear, sorry to hear about what happened with your daughters cookies. You definitely have to check and check again when doubling or dividing a recipe.
Hello Karen, I haven’t stopped by for awhile I’ve been kept busy by my grandchildren, but saw your beautiful cookies and I’m putting this recipe into my file, I’m sure my grandsons will love these, but at their age they won’t be thinking about the Tiffany coloured icing yet, a cookie is a cookie to early teenagers. Wish I was a guest at your open house party, lucky guests.
Hi Barbara, I wish we weren’t miles across the ocean or I would love to have you and your husband attend our open house. I think you will enjoy the sugar cookie recipe…the cookies are great even if they aren’t decorated with icing. I know that this is a very busy time for all of us…I’m still trying to catch up from our travels but I seem to never catch up so don’t worry.
I love to make sugar cookies at Christmas, and this recipe sounds delicious. I will be sure to leave a cookie under the tree for my husband with an exact copy of your first paragraph, in hopes of finding that little blue box! LOL Thank you for the yummy recipe.
Hi Mary, It seems like I have been using this recipe forever…it never disappoints. I have my fingers crossed that a cookie and a note of my first paragraph works. I hope I will be getting lots of “thank you” notes from readers who get a little blue box if this cookie works. 🙂
They do look gorgeous!!! The color is so Tiffany amazing. 🙂
Thank you Francesca, I’m happy to know that you like how I decorated my cookies. I thought Tiffany Blue would be the perfect color for a sparkly snowflake cookie.
Great decorating job! When Santa sees these I’m pretty sure he’ll be motivated to give you something from TIffany’s. 😉 These make such a terrific gift – your guests will love them. Thanks for the idea!
Thank you John, I’m glad you like my decorating job…it was fun project. I’m hopeful that my guests will enjoy their little gifts.
This recipe of cookies is looking so appetizing and beautiful.Thanks for sharing awesome recipes!
I cant wait to try my hands on it. It is looking so good with all the lovely pictures and write up as well. I have been here after a while but enjoyed browsing through your rest of the wonderful recipes. It was a real delight to see and learn so much from your each and every post. Hope to see more of your creative endeavors in the New Year. Wish you and your family a very Happy and Blessed New Year!!! Have a wonderful Holiday Season and stay Warm !
Best Regards, Sonia
Thank you Sonia, for your visit. I appreciate your lovely compliment and wish. I’m happy to know that you enjoy my photos and recipes. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season as well.
Super cute idea and those cookies are so elegant!
Hi Pamela, I’m glad you like my idea…it doesn’t hurt to give Santa ideas. Thank you for your nice compliment about the cookies.
My Goodness – those are beautiful! I don’t know how you have the patience to do all that! I hope you get the blue box. One arrived here last week (before the ice and snow) and…darn the luck…it was from our son to my daughter-in-law and he wanted it delivered here so she wouldn’t know. 🙂
Hi Kelli, I worked on the cookies over three days so it really was easy. I made the dough one day and refrigerated it, baked and iced them in blue the next, then did the design on the third. It sounds like you have a wonderful son and a lucky daughter-in-law.
Beautiful cookies, a beautiful gift item, a magical taste in the mouth! And, you used your beautiful, vintage Moonstone Opalescent to display!
Thank you Fae, for your kind words…they are very much appreciated. Yes, I do love using my Moonstone Opalescent plates. I think they look like a jewel themselves.
Thank you Arthur, I’m happy to know that you like my snowflake cookies.
They are so very pretty Karen. I admire your patience with the decoration! 😀 I think homemade things are so much nicer than store-bought.
Hi Cathy, I appreciate your nice compliment. I agree with you about homemade gifts and I think everyone appreciates the thought that goes into them.
The cookies are beautifully decorated. I am sure that Santa will find them irresistible, I hope his elves don’t forget to put that all important blue box into his sleigh.
Best wishes from B
Thank you B, for your lovely thought and compliment. I’m glad that you like the way I decorated the snowflake cookies.
It’s a fun time of the year, isn’t it Karen… and baking Tiffany snowflake cookies is just the thing! Happy baking and merry Christmas to you and yours! xo
Hi Lizzy, I absolutely agree with you, I love the Christmas season. Baking is such a memorable part of it…fruitcake being another one of my favorite Christmas sweets. Thank you for your nice compliment and wish. I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas as well.
Dont worry if I see Santa around the corner I will pass your message to him 🙂
Raymund, you are a true friend. I appreciate your putting in a good word with Santa for me if you happen to see him. 🙂
Wouldn’t it be fun if you left these for Santa and found a box from Tiffany’s? One can always hope 🙂
Hi Sam, As they say, “hope springs eternal”. It really would be fun if it worked. 🙂
Tiffany Blue is my favorite color…and gift!! These are so pretty and I love your sweet gift wrapping of each cookie for your guests!
Hi Linda, I think all girls love the color Tiffany Blue even if there are no sparkly items involved. I’m glad you like how I’m presenting the cookies to my guests…hopefully they will enjoy them. Thank you for your nice compliment.
These are gorgeous Karen! And what a fun idea! If it would bring me a Tiffany’s box, I’ll bake a dozen batches 🙂
Thank you Chris, for your nice compliment. I’m glad you like my idea…if it works, everyone will have to get out their cookie sheets. 🙂
Very stylish cookies – worthy of a Tiffany box all of their own! I hope Santa takes the hint and your Christmas wish comes true.
Hi Sarah, I’m happy to know that a you like my Tiffany snowflake cookies. I’ll have to see if the hint works. LOL
Karen, they’re absolutely stunning! What a magnificent gift and I’m sure they taste wonderful as well! All the best for a fabulous Christmas and New Year! xx
Thank you Celia, for your lovely compliment. I hope my guests will enjoy them. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year as well.
Oh, Karen, you have been a very good little girl indeed!!!!!
Hi Kathryn, I hope Santa agrees with you. 🙂
How gorgeous are these cookies? So wonderful and perfect! Santa will absolutely love them!
Hi Amy, I appreciate your nice compliment. I hope Santa will appreciate them…I think he will.
Neither a cookie or cake baker I but these must be the most beautifully decorated biscuits [as we would call them] I have ever seen! Just hate to think how many baking days it must take to fulfil all the ‘orders’ 🙂 ! You very definitely deserve that little blue box as a loving reward!!
Thank you for your kind words Eha, they are very much appreciated. I also want to thank you for the lovely email that you sent to your friends about my snowflake biscuits, that was so thoughtful. 🙂
Why should they not share in something so beautiful? Some may even dare to try and copy 🙂 !
You are so sweet…thank you!
I love the Tiffany blue color of these snowflake cookies – they turned out really lovely and are different than many cookies I see. Very nice!
Thank you Amy, I’m glad you liked the Tiffany Blue color. I wanted to do a special cookie for the guests that will be coming to my party and I’m pleased with the way these cookies turned out.
Beautiful cookies! I am always searching for the perfect sugar cookie recipe, and this might be it. Hope you get that blue box, too. 🙂
Thank you Michelle, I’m happy to know that you like the cookies. I’ve been using this recipe for years.The cookies don’t spread when baked so you get nice shapes which is important on some designs.
What a wonderful post. So glad to hear you’ve been good. I must’ve been bad. Don’t remember when?! But I doubt if Santa will be bringing me anything this year! Ouch. Oh well, at least I can make these cookies. I’ve been looking for a recipe that would hold their shape. Partly as I was toying with doing Christmas decorations out of them, or some sort of edible pastry. Unfortunately, I keep forgetting Christmas is so soon. Very disorganised this year.
Hi Johnny, I really do appreciate your kind words. I’m sure that you are not on Santa’s bad list! I think you will be pleased with this recipe as the cookies do keep their shape when baked. I have tried several other recipes that you can’t even tell what the cookies were suppose to be once they were baked.
These are beautiful cookies….Here is wishing you a little blue box for Christmas under your tree, with something that has a really nice sparkle to it-
Thank you Velva, for your nice compliment and wish. I know Santa loves cookies, we will see if he gets the hint. 🙂
Your cookies are gorgeous Karen, and you have decorated them so perfectly. They’re stunning and I love the Tiffany’s theme. I hope you get your wish! xx
Hi Charlie, I’m happy to know that you like the Tiffany snowflake cookie idea…thank you for your compliment and wish.
Oh Karen! Those have got to be the prettiest cookies ever!
Thank you Lidia, I’m glad you like the snowflake cookies. I’m pleased with the way they turned out.
Those cookies all wrapped up will look gorgeous. Where did that wee Tiffany box come from? You lucky girl!
Hi Suzanne, I’m glad that you like how I packaged the cookies. I wanted them to be a pretty little gift for the guests coming to our Christmas party.
I sure wish I were Santa! Of course I might just end up camping out under your tree until all of these cookies are gone. he he. And so beautiful! It’s obvious that you enjoy baking decorating holiday goodies. Looking forward to seeing more.
Hi MJ, You gave me a real chuckle. I can just envision you camping out under our tree enjoying the cookies. I have been having a lot of fun decorating Christmas cookies…gingerbread cookies are done and now I’m decorating snowmen and Christmas tree sugar cookies. Thank you for your nice compliment as always.
beautiful cookies – such a wonderful gift idea!
Thank you Shashi, for your nice compliment. I’m glad you like the cookies as a pretty gift idea…I hope my friends enjoy them.
These Tiffany snow flakes need to be in a culinary magazine or maybe as an add for the Tiffany jeweller. Just stunning! You have such a steady hand and patience to get these cookies just right. Wishing you a super holiday. Take care
Thank you Bobbie, for your lovely compliment…I am very flattered. I think royal icing is much easier to work with compared to when I used to paint glazes and food coloring on with a paint brush. All you need is a little practice which can be done on parchment paper until you get the hang of it.
These cookies are gorgeous, Karen, and you’ve packaged them up so beautifully, too! Lucky guests to receive these sparkly, lovely cookies.
Hi Marcie, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your lovely compliment. I hope my guests will like the cookies as much as you do. 🙂
Oh these are so beautiful, what a great idea for a lovely present! I’d be baking all day if I was guaranteed a nice Tiffany present in a couple of weeks time 😉
Hi Lisa, I’ve been baking for more than a week…I’m hoping Santa will enjoy my cookies and the subtle hint. 🙂 Thank you for your nice compliment.
Tiffany blue is my favorite color. You did an excellent job. My decorating skills always look good in my head, but in actuality not so much. You make me want to try again.
Thank you Madonna, for your nice compliment. I love Tiffany Blue too, it is such a beautiful and calming color. Do try again, you can practice on parchment paper and scrape it off and start again. Once you feel comfortable, decorate your cookies. Just remember that they are only cookies and we get to eat our mistakes…I do. 🙂
Beautiful cookies, Karen!
Thank you Marigene, I’m happy that you like my snowflake cookies.
How beautiful are these cookies! You’re such a star! or a snowflake.
Hi Maureen, I think I would like to be a pretty snowflake except that they don’t last too long. Now stars on the other hand, may last billions of years. Either way, I’m glad you like my cookies and I appreciate your lovely compliment…thank you. 🙂
Your cookies are like little works of art. So delicate and pretty, and, I’m sure they are very very delicious.
Hi Annie, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your lovely compliment. I love this sugar cookie recipe…I’ve been making it for years.
Way beyond my capabilities, Karen, but SO pretty! As you know, my daughter and her friend Jema will be cooking up a storm with something similar. Such a lovely personal gift 🙂
Hi Jo, I’m glad that you like the snowflake cookies. They really aren’t that hard, you just need a steady hand. Thank you for your nice compliment.
Love the Tiffany blue of the icing and the famous box…reminds me of times gone by:)
Hi Roger, I thought it would be fun to make the snowflakes Tiffany Blue. I’m glad you like them, I hope my friends do as well.
Karen, very elegant cookies. TheTiffany blue sugar icing and the sparkly sugar certainly makes these extra festive and special looking! I am sure that not only Santa but also all your lucky friends will adore these!
Have a lovely week!
Thank you Andrea, for your nice compliment. The sparkly sugar gave the cookies the perfect look of a snowflake. I’m hoping my friends will enjoy their little gifts. I hope you are having a nice week as well.
You clever and talented lady. 🙂 These are absolutely beautiful. 🙂
Thank you for your sweet words, Krista. I’m happy that you like my snowflake cookies.
The cookies look absolutely lovely!
Hi Jess, Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate you compliment, I’m glad you like the cookies.
These are just gorgeous, Karen – it would be worth all Santa’s hard work to come down your chimney and find those! I hope your wish comes true, and that Santa (or someone else) brings you a little blue box…
Thank you David, for your lovely compliment and wish.. I hope Santa doesn’t eat to many cookies at other people’s homes…our old historic chimneys are pretty narrow. 🙂
These cookies are enchanting! I love all the variations. Truly beautiful.
Thank you so much Mary Ann, I appreciate your nice compliment. I’m happy to know that you like the snowflake cookies.
So pretty! I have a friend here who hosts (hostesses?) a “cookie party” every December. She bakes dozens and dozens of sugar cookies using all sorts of cutters and her friends and her friend’s kids (and now grand kids!) come and decorate them. Great fun…
Good luck with your hint! Looks beautiful – guess you could always put one on a chain if all else fails! 🙂
Hi Rachel, It sounds like your friend has a great time making cookies with her friends and family. You gave me a real chuckle with your comment…I’ll keep your suggestion in mind and start looking for a chain just in case. 🙂
Karen, those are gorgeous cookies! We use the same sugar cookie recipe, it is the very best tasting in my opinion. What a tasty party favor for your guests, so well done!
Hi Judy, Don’t you just love this recipe. I don’t think I would ever try a different sugar cookie. I love the way the cookies hold their shape, their crisp texture and delicious flavor. I’m hoping my guests will enjoy the little cookie gift. Thank you for your nice comment.
What beautiful cookies. I know how much time they take because I have made some like these not snowflakes tho. I’m sure your guest will be thrilled with these as gifts.
Hi Suzanne, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. The cookies did take a little time but I do like the end results.
Hahaha,..so happy for you that you received your lovely Tiffany package. I hope it was a cool package on the inside!! Your lovely iced Blue white stars look Amazing, my dear Karen!!. X
Thank you for much Sophie, for your sweet compliment and wish. I’m happy that you like the snowflake cookies.
What adorable cookies! Those look so good I could just gobble them up. I love the idea of the Tiffany blue icing!
Thank you Ducky, I’m glad you like the snowflake cookies done in Tiffany Blue…I thought it was fun. Hopefully my guests will enjoy them.
So gorgeous!!! I made snowflake cookies last year for my friends too, and it was a hit! Yours are stunning!!! Happy holidays!
Hi Kaprise, Thank you for your visit and your nice compliment. I hope you will have a wonderful holiday season as well.
Oh, Karen, I can imagine how beautiful these will look in your gorgeous home. I hope you will share photos of your Christmas decorations this year!
Thank you Victoria, for your lovely compliment. I will be more than happy to show some of my Christmas decorations on my next post. 🙂
love the tiffany blue color to the icing and the design is so intricate. You did an amazing job
Hi Jessica, I love the color Tiffany Blue too…I think it is a calming and beautiful color. Thank you for your lovely compliment.
Your cookies sound as special as a blue box from Tiffany’s 🙂
I appreciate your nice compliment, Tandy. I’m happy that you like the snowflake cookies…thank you.
Works of art these are. I’m going to try out your recipe. I like the non-spreading idea. I’m getting my freezer filled with ready to bake cookies but not the pretty ones. Just some good standards.
And I love the packaging.
Thank you so much Wendy, for your lovely compliment. I believe you will be very happy with this sugar cookie recipe, I’ve made it for years. I’ve been baking cookies for a week…I like the standards too.
Lovely cookies,the guests will be quite happy to have them! Leave one for Santa. Hopefully he will be bribed 🙂
Hi Ayesha, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. I’ll have to wait and see how much Santa likes the cookies. 🙂
Wendy took the words right out of my mouth! As I was looking at the photos I kept thinking these cookies are definitely works of art, Karen. They’re gorgeous! I have never made any cookies quite this exquisite, and I think the idea of placing them in little cello bags is really a wonderful way to display them for gift giving. Thank you for sharing your basic recipe! I would like to try it and compare with others I’ve used. I don’t have a favorite, as such, and would love to land one ONE recipe as my go-to! Now we’ll wait to see if that little blue box materializes. 🙂 I’m still oohing and ahhing over those cookies!
Thank you for your kind words, Debra…they are very much appreciated. This basic recipe is dependable and everyone seems to enjoy the taste.
I love the way you give hints 🙂 !! Gorgeous sparkly cookies!
Hi Sandra, I think it is a subtle hint…I’ll have to wait and see if it works.
What a creative post, Karen! And the Tiffany cookies are pieces of art!!!!!!
Thank you Denise, I’m happy to know that you enjoyed the post and cookies. I appreciate your nice compliment.
These are just so adorable – much to pretty to eat!
Thank you Afra, I’m glad you like the cookies. I hope my guests will enjoy them.
These Tiffany cookies look so beautiful and elegant.
I’m sure Santa will leave you one of those little blue boxes for being such a good girl 🙂
Hi Daniela, I have tried to be a good girl this year. I don’t think I’ll get coal in my stocking but I’ll have to wait and see what I get. 🙂 Thank you for your nice compliment.
You have definitely earned your blue box. These are gorgeous, but the effort you must have put into them is most impressive. Have a joyous holiday season.
I appreciate your kind words, Darryl. The cookies did take a little while to decorate and I’m hoping my friends will enjoy them. Thank you for your lovely wish, I hope you will have a wonderful holiday season as well.
Your cookies look spectacular! You decorated them to the hilt…just perfect!!!
Thank you for your nice compliment, Liz. I’m happy that you like the way I decorated the snowflake cookies.
These are exquisite. And that party of yours sounds wonderful. Frankly I’d be quite happy just to get a box with one of your sugar cookies inside! But I do really really hope you get what you are wishing for…
Thank you for your nice compliment Lindy. If you were a neighbor, I’d invite you to our open house and give you one of the cookies. I’ll have to wait and see if Santa gets the hint. 🙂
Oh, I hope your wishes do come true! Your cookies are so beautiful and I’m sure everyone will appreciate them. Merry Christmas to you!
Thank you so much for your wish, Laila…it is very much appreciated as is your nice compliment about the cookies. Tomorrow is my party…I’m hoping my guests will enjoy the little snowflake cookie gifts. I hope you and your beautiful family will have a wonderful Christmas, as well.
Lucky Santa! These are so pretty. I hope you do find a Tiffany box under your tree!
Hi Lisa, I’m hoping Santa will like them…I’ll have to wait and see. 🙂 Thank you for your nice compliment.
These are absolutely beautiful, Karen. From the packaging to the decorations they look so festive! I love cookies with cream of tartar.
Thank you Becki, for your nice compliment. I’m glad to know you like the recipe and the snowflake cookies. I’m glad you agree with me about a cookie recipe that includes cream of tartar. I believe that it makes this a reliable recipe for cut out sugar cookies.
Simply stunning cookies and nice looking box, too 🙂
Hi Linda, I’m happy to know that you like the snowflake cookies…thank you for your nice compliment.
Gorgeous cookies and they are the perfect Tiffany blue!
Thank you Laura, for your compliment. I’m glad you like the Tiffany blue color.
Gorgeous cookies, Karen! I hope Santa is listening because I think you deserve a little blue box under your tree.
Hi Stacy, Thank you for your wish and compliment. I’ll have to wait and see what may appear under the tree. 🙂
I don’t think I will find a little blue box under my tree this year, but one can always hope. Your cookies are beautiful, Karen, and they make such a lovely gift. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Hi Cathy, You never know what will appear under the tree so I’ll keep my fingers crossed for both of us. 🙂 I’m happy that you like the recipe…thank you for your nice compliment.
Wow those biscuits look amazing. Hope the right box appears under the tree for you 🙂 Have a great Xmas and all the best for 2014. Diane
Thank you Diane, for your compliment and wish. I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas and great New Year as well.
These look exquisite! Santa will adore…and it looks like your readers think they will, too. 🙂
Hi Kathy, Thank you for your nice compliment. I do hope Santa will like the cookies as much as my readers have. 🙂
These are the most beautiful, amazingly elegant looking cookies I have EVER seen in my life!
Hi Vivien, Thank you for stopping by to visit and your very kind words…they are very much appreciated. I look forward to your return. 🙂
So pretty! Those cookies are wonderfully decorated and must taste heavenly.
Thank you Rosa, for your nice compliment. They are a good tasting cookie.
Man I wish we lived closer Karen!! ♥ Absolutely gorgeous!!
Hi Didi, I wish you were a neighbor…I would to happy to offer you one of the cookies. 🙂
Hi Karen, It looks like you are ready for a splendid Christmas season. I appreciate you sharing a tour of your home, all decorated for the holidays. What lovely things you have!
Best wishes for a happy time with family and friends, Nancy
Thank you Nancy, for your nice compliment and wish. I’m glad you enjoyed the little tour of our home. I hope you will have a wonderful holiday as well.
There are so pretty!! I admire beautifully decorated cookies like these but usually lack the patience to carry them off. Yours are perfect.
Thank you Susan, for your nice compliment. The snowflake cookies were fun to make and were well received when I passed them out to our friends.
Hi Karen, I’m so glad I took a break from Christmas preparations to read this post! I will definitely give your recipe a try. Your Tiffany cookies are exquisitely beautiful! Thank you for sharing 🙂 Dana
Hi Dana, I do think you would enjoy this cookie recipe…it has never failed me. I make it every year and everyone enjoys the cookies.
Hi Karen, one of my students is planning on making these cookies! I’ll see if I can get a photo of the two of them!
Hi Mary, I would love to see the snowflake cookies that your students create…I’m sure they will be lovely.
They are a cookie to rival the brilliance of a Tiffany diamond!
Thank you so much Donna, for your nice compliment. My friends did enjoy the Tiffany snowflake cookies gifts. 🙂
I think these would have been perfect last year with my Tiffany themed Christmas decorations! I might just have to go back to Tiffany Blue next year, then I can make these and have a platter on display. These are just the prettiest cookies, Karen, what a lovely gift for your friends. And I love that little blue box for you as well;)xx
Hi Barbara, If you have a Tiffany themed Christmas again, I think these cookies would be perfect…my friends did enjoy them. Thank you for your nice compliment.
Thank you Carol, they were fun to make and our guests loved them.
How absolutely stunning! Such a lovely home Karen. I’d love to come by for a visit! 🙂 Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
Thank you Karista, for your lovely compliment. Perhaps some day you will get a chance to visit the east coast at Christmas…it usually is a white one. We had a very nice day, I hope you didi as well.
Your cookies are beautiful and Tiffany blue is always stunning! I’m certain your friends and neighbors appreciated receiving these sparkly confections. It took me a few tries before I found a good sugar cookie recipe that didnt lose its shape. By the way, I may try hinting to my husband next year too!
As you can see, I’m catching up with your goings and doings in December. It looks like its been a wonderful season!
Hi Allison, I appreciate your taking the time to catch up on my posts…that is so nice. My friends did enjoy the cookies…thank you.
