Baby Jesus Cookie Tutorial

Baby Jesus Cookie Tutorialpost signature

Growing up in Mexico at Christmas time the most special house decoration is the  "Nacimiento" ( Nativity scene) It was a whole ritual, unpacking very carefully all the pieces that has been for many generations in my family, fixing the broken pieces, ( there is always a Wisemen without a hand or a lamb with 3 legs ; ) plan a trip to the market to buy fresh moss, hay, some pine branches and very important the paper posters of the sky, desert, rocks, etc. 

I have so many good memories around the Nativity scene, actually I inherit my grandmother's Holy family, it is made out of wood, it is really pretty!

So for me making Nativity scene cookies is a most!

This cookie is one of my favorites, looks really elegant and very special, very appropriate for a Baby Jesus  in a manger cookie.




Please watch the video to learn how I did this cookie!






I made this cookie to decorate a Christmas Cake too!

When I have a cookie  idea in my head, I just want to do it ASAP, but sometimes I don't have the appropriate cookie cutters and don't want to go to the hassle of order a cookie cutter, pay for shipping and wait for its arrival.  

So I take a look at my cookie cutter collection and try my best to think out of the box to come out with the idea I am thinking of. 


I made this cute cat on a pumpkin or jack'o lantern cookie for halloween, hope it inspire you to use different cookie cutters to create unique cookies!!

This is for sure one of my favorite recipes and I hope that it will be one of yours too!

I used a Belgian Cocoa Powder and the result was a extremely delicious soft chocolate cookie, for a twist I decorate the cookies with a raspberry royal icing and the results were fantastic!


You can watch the video  or if you want you can print the recipe.
