Marshmallow tree tutorial
For the birth of Anna Laura I thought of making a marshmallow tree to give her a sweet welcome!
In this tutorial I will show you step by step how to make it.
What we need:
A polystyrene sphere
A vase (ikea)
Colored tissue paper
One kilo bag of marshmallows
Tulle to decorate cakes
First we wrap the cardboard tube with colored ribbons, you can use that of parchment paper or the like, pierce the polystyrene ball with a knife (of the width of the tube) and insert it by applying a little pressure, this must not move and it must be firmly in place. Insert the polystyrene cylinder inside the vase, cover the bottom with tissue paper and arrange the colored tulle around the edge of the vase. Cut the tissue paper in the center forming a hole, from there the other end of the tube will pass, taking care to insert it firmly and making it sink to the most appropriate point.
Now you can insert the toothpicks and at the same time also the marshmallows on the polystyrene ball, forming a line that divides the sphere in half and from there continue until it is completely filled.
Put some marshmallows inside the jar and if you want, pack them with transparent paper and colored ribbon!
I assure you that you will make everyone happy who receives your sweet Marshmallow tree !!
Salt and pepper as requiredToday is the first of December, so we are fully entitled to the Christmas period, then green light for decorations to be scattered around the house and, why not, in blogs.
what a beautiful tree. delicious! I imagine the joy of those who receive them, I would be very happy! last night I finally made my first decent cookies. They are similar to your spices, but with more spice. I put just a few of all and maybe I could have put more, but as a first experiment I'm very happy because they finally came crunchy. Later I decorate them and then place them .. and maybe, who knows, I give the next ones as you suggest!
Evvaiiiiiii how wonderful Cocò.
Beautiful your little tree CoCò very good!
I want to do it too..too cute! Too bad I don't have so many stars :(
I hadn't been through for a while, I found many new posts, one more greedy than the other !! :-P
But I believe that tree won't last long intact.
@Midge then I go on to see the result in your blog, however, know that they are very welcome gifts to those who receive them and then they can also become very interesting for example by giving them in a box or in a particular dish that the recipient can then use again
@Lory and Ady thanks to both of them
@Nightfairy do not worry about the stars, they are fine even in cardboard you place them on the pasta and cut with a sharp knife
@Anna depends on the point of view, a friend of mine has kept it intact since last year she said it was too cute to eat it, in my opinion it is ideal as a centerpiece at Christmas, then at the end of lunch everyone takes off a piece

Christmas cookies for the tree
Ingredients for about 24 biscuits
300 g of flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg powder
180 g of melted butter, cold
150 g of sugar
Icing with powdered sugar to decorate
Sugars and colored sugared almonds to decorate
Cookie molds with Christmas shapes
Chop the butter, put it together with the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in a large bowl. Work the dough well with your hands - with an electric mixer it would be better.
When you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, wrap it in cling film, put it in the fridge to rest for at least half an hour.
Roll out the dough on a floured work surface and in the meantime preheat the oven to 180 ° C.
The dough must be about 5 mm high, then cut the biscuits with the chosen molds and place them on a baking sheet, covered with baking paper.
Cook for about 10 minutes. As soon as you take them out of the oven, remember to make a hole in each cookie so that you can tie them with a ribbon and hang. Do this with a toothpick when they are still warm and soft, otherwise the dough will harden and the cookies could break.
Before decorating them, let them cool well, then proceed by creating the contours with the white icing, or by placing colored or silver sprinkles on the tips of the stars, or to give expression to the gingerbread men.

Cookies For The Christmas Tree
Since I was little, as usual, the Christmas tree has been prepared in our house on December 8th. The whole family together in boxes full of balls, lights, golden threads and various decorations. This year I promised my little one that we would make our parties even more special by preparing the Christmas tree cookies. After having documented myself on the subject and made some tests (what a sacrifice!), Here is the recipe for the sweetest and most fragrant decorations available & # 8230 We also had a lot of fun decorating the cookies with the Royal icing and the end result was amazing. Our tree has acquired a special charm and I am increasingly convinced that decorating the Christmas tree with cookies is a simple, cheap and original way to make this Christmas symbol unique. Not to mention the emotion in hanging our little masterpieces! Then, hand to the molds and everyone to turn on the oven to make many beautiful cookies for the Christmas tree.
for the Christmas tree cookies:
- 400 g of flour 00 (plus that for rolling out)
- 100 g of sugar
- 100 g of honey
- 100 g of butter
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
- the grated zest of half an orange
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (for food use)
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
for the royal icing:
Arrange all the ingredients on the work surface to prepare the Christmas tree cookies, it will be easier to make the recipe. Measure only the ingredients for the cookies, we'll think about the icing later. First take the butter, cut it into small pieces and let it soften at room temperature, so it will be easier to work it. In the meantime, weigh the flour, sugar and honey, take the egg and the orange, measure the cinnamon, cocoa, baking soda and salt. You will also need molds, a planetary mixer / mixer, bowls, rolling pin, baking pans, parchment paper, cling film, wooden / silicone spoon, etc. Now that everything is at hand you are ready to make some beautiful cookies for the Christmas tree.
To prepare the cookies for the Christmas tree you will also need various Christmas-themed molds, they can be found in the best homewares stores, in specialized pastry shops or online. They are essential for having many perfect cookies. In this recipe I used the tescoma molds designed specifically for this use, with the clip that is also used to create the hole for the hook or the ribbon. A real treat! & # 8221
First, carefully mix the Flour with the cinnamon, the bitter cocoa, the bicarbonate and the salt. Keep aside.
Pour the butter softened and lo sugar in a bowl, mix with a mixer at low speed to obtain a nice cream.
Tip: It is important that the butter is soft, otherwise it becomes more difficult to process & # 8221
At this point, join theegg whole and the honey, continue to mix with the electric mixer for a few minutes, so that the butter (which is very fatty) binds well with the other ingredients.
This recipe is easier and faster to make with an electric mixer or a planetary mixer, but if you don't have one of these appliances, you can proceed by mixing the ingredients by hand, using a spoon. The result is the same & # 8221
While the basic ingredients of the Christmas tree cookies continue to mix, pour the grated orange zest.
Now add the Flour flavored with cocoa and cinnamon. Pour 2-3 tablespoons at a time, once absorbed pour more flour.
Once all the ingredients are mixed, the dough is almost ready, there are many crumbs in the bowl. Pour the mixture of cookies for the Christmas tree on a floured pastry board and knead it a little. Shape into a ball and cover with some transparent film. Place it in the refrigerator and let it harden for at least a couple of hours.
If the cookie dough for the Christmas tree is mushy and sticky, so that it cannot form a smooth ball, it is because of the type of honey used. Just add 1-2 tablespoons of flour and the dough will be perfect! & # 8221
After two hours (plus minute, minus minute), unwrap the Christmas tree cookie dough from the plastic wrap and place it on a floured surface. Gently roll out the biscuit dough with the help of a rolling pin, until you get one sheet of about 3-4 millimeters. For convenience you can roll out the dough a little at a time, dividing it into smaller pieces.
While you roll out the cookie dough for the Christmas tree every now and then move the dough, so that it does not stick to the work surface. Maybe lift it a little and sprinkle the pastry board and the surface of the dough with a little more flour.
Now here's the fun part, cutting out the cookies for the Christmas tree. With the molds, press on the dough and obtain many biscuits with the various Christmas shapes and more. Then take a baking sheet, possibly large, and line it with parchment paper. Gradually place the cookies for the Christmas tree, spacing them a few centimeters apart because the baking soda will make them grow a little.
Collect the leftovers of the dough and reform a ball, knead it a little on the floured work surface and roll it out as before. Make other Christmas cookies, like this, until you run out of dough.
I usually leave the remaining dough for my little one at the end, so she can make the cookies on her own for tea time with the dolls. This time, however, we have prepared some smaller cookies for the Christmas tree, to decorate the mini-tree of his room & # 8221
After placing the cookies for the Christmas tree on the parchment paper, make a hole on the top of the cookie so as to pass - once cooked - a ribbon to hang them. In my experience, the right size is that of a straw. It is also important not to make the hole too close to the edge, as it is easier for them to break.
In the meantime, turn on the oven at 180 °, place the oven grill in the center with the ventilated program: the time has come to bake the cookies for the Christmas tree. Leave them in the oven for 10-12 minutes and as soon as they begin to brown they will be cooked. Be careful, don't lose sight of the oven, the biscuits don't have to stay in the oven that much! Repeat the operation until all the Christmas tree cookies are cooked.
With this recipe I made about thirty cookies, but the number can vary depending on the size of the cookie cutters & # 8221
Once cooked, take them out of the oven immediately, let them cool for a couple of minutes in the pan and when they have hardened a bit, so that you can handle them, let them cool completely on a wire rack or plate, but do not put the biscuits on top of each other. because they could be deformed.
As the delicious mix of scents of Christmas tree cookies invades the house, start preparing the Royal icing. Weigh the icing sugar, take the egg and lemon.
Get the juice from half a lemon, strain it with a colander and put it in a small bowl (you will need a spoon for the recipe). In a medium-sized bowl put theegg white and add the lemon. With a whisk (or a fork) whisk the two ingredients vigorously for a few minutes, until it becomes a nice frothy and frothy mixture.
Combine, a few tablespoons at a time, it powdered sugar and keep stirring vigorously.
This way you will get a dense and elastic compound. Royal icing is perfect when solid, firm peaks form when lifting some with the whisk. In this case I decided to dilute the royal icing a little with a drop of cold water to make it more fluid (see the advice on the consistency of the icing in the complete recipe for royal icing).
Remember in this regard: icing sugar makes the icing harder, obviously egg white and lemon juice make it more liquid. A small variation of these ingredients causes the texture of the royal icing to change. Play the little chemist if you realize the glaze doesn't have the right consistency. To make the royal icing more fluid you can also add a little cold water, one drop at a time.
Well well well: the time has come decorate the cookies for the Christmas tree. Put the icing in a pastry bag with a small spout, or use a pen decorating sweets, and have fun decorating trees, balls, stars ... So now turn up the volume of the music and let your imagination run free.
Decorating the cookies for the Christmas tree with royal icing is easy, it just takes a little patience and time available because the operation requires a lot of calm and a good dose of precision & # 8221
For cookies with the color & # 8220pieno & # 8221 start decorating by drawing the whole border with royal icing. Then, to glaze the whole biscuit, dilute the royal icing with a drop of cold water making it more fluid, start from the edge you prepared earlier and fill with icing by moving towards the center. Before proceeding with the other layers, let the base dry for about ten minutes. The advice is to first make the base flat for all the cookies for the Christmas tree, then start all over again for the finishing touches.
In this photo I'm decorating a tree with stars. After cutting the biscuit with the alberello mold, with the leftover dough I obtained small stars and I put them on them by pressing a little while cooking they join creating the relief & # 8221
Here are the beautiful ones Christmas tree cookies tied with ribbon and red bow, hung together with the other decorations. With this recipe they should keep for 20-30 days, but the conservation depends on the humidity in the house. Once hooked to the branches it is better to treat the cookies as decorations and not eat them.You can also wrap them one by one in small transparent bags closed with ribbons and bows, so that they do not get dust and then eat them. I always have some to nibble on while I gaze in the dark - admired - at the most beautiful and sparkling Christmas tree in this universe (I don't know about parallel universes!).
Handle the Christmas tree cookies very gently, they are fragile and could break when you tie them with the ribbon & # 8221
There is also the little pest cookie-heart dedicated to dad (I say & # 8230 dad, not mom! Oh well).
I would say that All I want for Christmas is you sung (and written) by Mariah Carey is perfect! Listen to it blaring as you bake cookies for the & # 8217 Christmas tree & # 8230
A basket of cherries
