I pulled this photo from our archives. This was two moves ago when we decorated sugar cookie trees with our good friends. Aren't those two little girls darling? They were BFFs (from 18 months to 4 1/2 years old) and I still wonder if they will hook up again in college someday. As luck would have it, a few years ago we hooked up with them briefly at our hotel room after missing a connecting flight and our girls were giggling like old times within minutes. The good 'ol days.
star cookie trees
I used my grandma's sugar cookie recipe and cut out stars of different sizes then we stacked them using thick icing (royal icing works best). For taller trees, use two stars of each size.
