Christmas Cookie Hanging Garland

This Christmas we decided we wanted to hang cookies with our tinsel so we pulled out our cookies and got baking!

Obviously these are just biccies or cookies that we hung creatively thus the name, but it is such a pretty presentation and adds a lot to your decor.



Remember to cut a hole out to hand them from before you bake them.

But, if like us you forget, a metal straw is a great way to cut the straw out after they’re cooked.

Just be gentle and make sure you twist the straw as you push down to cut the hole.

Quantity will vary depending on the size of your cookie cutters but this recipe makes roughly 50 to 60 cookies.

Enjoy and let us know how your Christmas Cookie Hanging Garland go!

  1. Preheat oven 180°C
  2. Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the condensed milk and sifted self-raising flour, mix to form a dough.
  4. Gently roll the mixture out until it is about a cm thick and use Christmas cookie cutters to cut out cookie.
  5. Using a straw, or something straw-like, cut a hole in each cookie you want to hand. Don’t do it to close to the edge of your cookie might break.
  6. Decorate with cachous if you want to.
  7. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Cool on a cooling rack until completely cooled.
  9. Now the fun really starts, decorate the cookies with icing pens and set aside to dry.
  10. Once dry, tie a length of fishing line on each cookie, decide which cookies will go where on your garland, and tie then to a long length of the line.
  11. Secure the ends of the long length to the place you want to display your cookie garland.
