Picture of Realistic Tree Cookies
I had set out to find a good idea for decorating a tree cookie, that looked as natural as possible.  Something that wasn't over-the-top and it would be elegant at the same time.  When I was looking on pinterest for inspiration, I found this link...Of course, it was one of those traps that leave you at a dead end!

So I had to study and try to figure it out on my own.  :)  Here is what I came up with.

Step 1: Tools

You will need some baked , tree sugar cookies.
Green royal icing in a piping bag, with...
Grass piping tip.
Powdered sugar for snow.
Brown royal icing for tree trunks.
Toothpick to clean up excess icing.
Oh you! You can do no wrong! These look great!
