Every year, I have thrown and participated in a Holiday Cookie Exchange.  As a Wilton Sweet Treat Team Member, I had an extra special opportunity to participate in a Wilton Sweet Treat Team Holiday Cookie Exchange.  My partner was Mandy from Waiting on Martha.  Now I have to tell you that the members of the Wilton Sweet Treat Team are some amazing bloggers.  In fact, I would even classify a lot of them as professional decorators.  Me on the other hand – well I am by no means a professional, but I definitely do put all my effort into making the best cupcakes, cookies and cakes I can.  And do you wanna know something?  My family and friends love it!!!

I’ve been wanting to try Color Flow for a really long time and thought this would be the perfect opportunity!  I started with the Wilton Roll-Out Cookie Recipe.  These cookies are yummy with Color Flow, Royal Icing or just by themselves!  We made stockings, mittens and Christmas trees for Mandy.  I sure hope she enjoys them!

Once we the Roll-Out Cookies were cooked and cooled, we prepared the Color Flow mixture.  There was a regular mixture and then a thin mixture.  The regular mixture was what we used to outline the cookie and then we filled it with the thinner Color Flow Mixture.  It was pretty dang cool!

Making the cookies was a lot of fun and I hope that Mandy enjoys them!  A big thanks to Wilton for making this Secret Santa Cookie Exchange possible!

    I like to make sugar cookies at the holiday, but my family always requests chocolate chip. It’s a time saver to go their route, but I also love getting into the spirit of the holiday by decorating cookies too!

  26. I should have done a cookie exchange for the holiday party I had last week. But I was so happy with the bottle of wine I got.

  27. Kathleen says:

    How fun! I love how your cookies turned out. We are going to decorate our own present cookies tonight.

  29. ooo the Wilton Sweet Treat Team sounds awesome. Love these cookies. I’ve never tried color flow but I want to!

  30. Pam says:

    You do a beautiful job with your cookies. They look so professional. My kids who are now adults have always been in love with the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I don’t make cookies much throughout the year anymore but I always make the oatmeal ones around the holidays for them.

  31. coolchillmom says:

    those cookies look so amazing!
    Our favorite cookies are the italian wedding balls

  32. rochkirstin says:

    That’s a great way to celebrate the holidays! Creating cookies and exchanging them with others seem so much fun. There’s an added excitement to the element of surprise to find out what shapes and designs others will come out with.

  33. I love to eat cookies but I am not a big baker. I try to make things look pretty but it does not work very often. I think I need to try this product as I love how your cookies turned out!

  34. Love the cookie shapes, it’s perfect for Christmas; I love baking!

  35. R U S S says:

    Those cookies will certainly brighten anyone’s day and they clearly communicate Merry Christmas. They look both yummy and merry. πŸ™‚

  36. Elizabeth O. says:

    I made Christmas cookies earlier, but not as cute as these! Hmm maybe next time!

  37. I totally wish I am a good cook or at least good at baking – making this would be so much fun!

  38. Rebecca Swenor says:

    These look amazingly delicious and would be so fun to make with the kids. I have always loved making Christmas cookies with the kids during the holidays. Thanks for sharing.

  39. Lisa Rios says:

    What a great idea! Looks fabulous! Really it has come out very well. I have never tried like this kind of cookies. I am sure my kids would really love this. Will have to try this for sure. Thanks for the share.

  40. Chrysa says:

    We love making cut out cookies for the holidays, too. I’ve not made a frosting/icing like this one but will try it. Wilton has the best baking products ever! Love the brand.

  41. Tonya C says:

    Your cookies turned out great! Cookie exchanges are so popular right now. I love Wilton’s products.

  42. Some of my favorite memories of all time are making Christmas cookies with my daughters when they were young. We never tried this technique but it looks like a ton of fun. Maybe I’ll have an opportunity to try it with my grandchildren.

  43. Krystal says:

    I have never seen the color flow products before. This would have been so handy last week! πŸ˜‰ Will try it for our next party!

  44. Danielle says:

    I haven’t used Color Flow yet but I’m excited to! These cookies turned out so cute!!

  45. Lynndee says:

    Honestly, I haven’t tried baking holiday cookies yet. I thought I would be able to do it this year but things had been so hectic. Hopefully, next year. πŸ™‚ Those look good, by the way.

  46. Debbie Denny says:

    The cookies look real good. Nice festive treat.

  47. Esther says:

    Your cookies turned out great! For some reason whenever I try to bake cookies they either run together or loose their shape entirely. Your cookies look nicely decorated and I bet tasty too!

  48. Melissa Smith says:

    I tried my hand at decorating cut out cookies this season with royal icing & I about gave myself arthritis! I think I need to check out the Color Flow just to keep my wrists happy.

  49. Amber NElson says:

    Those cookies look pretty delicious! I would love to try them!

  50. […] holiday season, I attempted to make (for the first time ever) Holiday Roll-Out Cookies with Color Flow icing….and I think they turned out great!!!  Hopefully my Secret Santa partner thought so too! […]
