Marbleized Christmas Cookie

You don’t need fancy equipment or professional decorating skills if you want to create gorgeous holiday cookies that look like they came from a fancy bakery. All you need, really, is a toothpick. (Though an offset spatula and an icing bottle come in handy, too.) To make this pretty pattern of colorful curves and swirls, simply ice your cookie in various colors, then drag a toothpick through the icing. Once the icing is dry, your cookie will be (almost) too beautiful to eat. What’s great about this technique is that you can use it on any cookie shape, for any occasion.

Watch this video for step-by-step instructions on how to create marbleized Christmas cookies.
