I get so excited about trying a new cookie design. I had red & white royal icing prepared, so I opened a container of cookies I had baked and saved. I could see a chimney shape to the stacked cake cookie, so I grabbed a few to decorate.
Santa's legs are the legs of a gingerbread man cookie cutter. I cut at a variety of lengths to include just Santa's legs/boots and some with the bottom of Santa's coat.
Pipe white for the top of Santa's boots and sprinkle with sanding sugar:
Pipe red legs. For the larger base cookies, add white trim to the bottom of Santa's coat. Then attach Santa's legs to the chimney.
Now that is a treat for Santa!
