Gingerbread Christmas Tree Cookie Cake Recipe

February 10, 2021 1 min read

Is there anything that smells more like Christmas than the smell of gingerbread cookies baking?   Mmmmmm... yum!  The recipe for my gingerbread Christmas tree cookie cake with cream cheese buttercream is at the bottom of page.

Using our plastic reusable tree cookie cake template, cut out your gingerbread shape.  We also have a print at home tree template available.

I used the leftover gingerbread cookie dough to make cute little cookie toppers for my cookie cake.  I used 2 of my favourite cookie cutters for this, a little deer and a town hall or church.  These were both purchased from Cookie Cutter Shop.  I love the stainless steel cookie cutters they sell for their durability and ease of cleaning - dishwasher safe!
