With 3 weeks to go until Christmas, its the perfect time to create some homemade gifts, to give to your friends and family?

Every year I make a batch of these chocolate chip cookies and decorate them to look like Christmas puddings. Using royal icing, I then pipe the name of the person I’m given them to, on the front of each of them. Over the years I have found these make a great stocking filler gift and are perfect for a little snack whilst they open the rest of their presents. I also make a few extra for me to enjoy whilst I’m piping all the names.

Christmas cookies

I absolutely love the flavour of these cookies, they are a really moreish chocolate chip cookie, which has just the right amount of crunch. If you would like to make your own, there is a video tutorial available below or on my Youtube Channel where I give all the details for the exact recipe and all the instructions on how to make them. I then show you exactly how I decorate them with royal icing drips and holly made from the PME cutters.

I then finish them off by placing each cookie into a clear cellophane bag and tying them with a ribbon, making them a lovely homemade gift for Christmas.

Also don’t for get to check out some of my other Christmas related video tutorials.
