Christmas Cookies - Snow Covered Trees

I made another set of Christmas cookies to celebrate the true meaning of this special day.  As the song goes, "It is the night of our dear Savior's birth."
This evening, as I walked through the woods, there was a light snow falling.  Everything looked so peaceful.  I think that perhaps a light dusting of snow is the best tree decoration ever.  What do you think?  Let's make some snow covered trees.

These are super easy.  They provide a great compliment to the manger cookies in the set.  I didn't want to over power the feature cookie with something too detailed or ornate.  These worked out perfectly.  Start by coloring the cookie dough green and the decorating gets a jump start.
Now all you have to do is pipe the snowy accent with some white icing.  They come together so quickly that I didn't really know what to take a picture of.  There's really only one step involved.

Wishing you peace this Christmas season.
