Add baking Christmas cookie ornaments to your holiday to-do list. It is an easy-to-make, one-bowl recipe to make these fully customizable cookie ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree. 



For the cookie dough:

* If needed, please refer to Baking Conversion Charts.


  1. To make the cookie dough, place softened butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until smooth. Add almond flour and mix. Then add icing (powdered) sugar, ground allspice, salt, all-purpose flour, egg, and mix until the dough becomes homogeneous.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to the thickness of about 1/5 inch/5 mm. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F/150 degrees C. Take the cookie dough out of the fridge and cut cookies using Christmas cookie cutters. Save, press together, and re-roll the dough scraps (you need to chill the rolled dough before cutting the cookies again.)
  4. Make a small hole in each cookie using a plastic straw. Arrange cookies on a baking sheet covered with parchment and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or till the light brown color.
  5. Place ornaments on a wire rack to cool down. Then thread red and white striped twine, a ribbon, a string, lace, or raffia through the hole in each cookie, tie the ends, and hang cookies in the tree. You can tie each cookie individually or use finished ornaments to make an edible holiday garland.


  1. Beat softened butter with an electric mixer and combine the rest of the ingredients with a rubber spatula or your hands if you do not have a stand mixer.
  2. Decorate baked cookies any way you desire.
  3. Store Christmas cookie ornaments in an airtight container for up to 2 to 4 weeks.
