Jingle Bell Cookies and a Printable Kopykake Template

I’ve got a confession.  Jingle bell cookies don’t make me jolly.  They don’t bring back sweet holiday memories from days gone by.  They absolutely frustrate me…beyond belief!  I’ve been trying to make jingle bell cookies for a few years now without success {no, there aren’t pictures}.

Jingle Bell Cookies SweetSugarbelle This year, determined to make them happen, I searched high and low for a Kopykake image…to no avail.  So, to pave the way for someone {besides me} to make awesome jingle bell cookies, I am posting one now.  For your free jingle bell Kopykake template, click here.

As for icing them, here’s one of several approaches you can take.  I won’t presume to declare this the only way because I don’t really love how mine turned out.

Jingle Bell Cookie TemplateWhen someone perfects them {I’m lookin’ at YOU, Mike}, let me know.  You will have my lifelong respect and gratitude.

Jingle Bell CookiesI’m still not loving my cookies, but it’s a good start.  Maybe after I recover from this year’s trauma, I’ll try again.  I’m hoping the template will make it easier on y’all at least.  To see envy-inducing jingle bell cookies, check out these posts:

    I think they look perfect. Just an idea, brush some of them with gold or silver lustre dust. I took a course this fall and our instructor told us that dry lustre dust should be applied to a dark surface, i.e. dark brown or black. For cakes, use black fondant. He suggested I apply over black RI. It works perfectly and no need to dissolve in alcohol which for me, always leaves little pits in the RI, even tho’ I switched to Everclear. Anyway, just a thought. I think your bells are fantastic – how can you even think they need improving? PS the best brush to apply lustre dusts to larger surfaces is a dense eyeshadow brush, the ones with short stubby bristles.

    No perfecting need! I think they are perfect the way they are! I love your template that you provided and how you can make these using a simple circle cutter. It’s the season for Mrs. Claus, reindeer, and sleigh bell cookies!
