  1. Just WOW!! That is Christmas cookie PERFECTION! Loved Rudolph and the Christmas trees especially! I love that you showed the consistency of the royal icing:  too stiff, too loose, and just right – that’s so useful! And you know, at first, I thought you bought Rudolph’s eyes in a pack – it was amazing to see you making them. I also love the Christmas lights on your logo at the beginning!

  2. Omg! Emma! Where did you get those fantastic cookie cutters? Your cookies look amazing. You, wow me all the time. Love all your videos. 😊😊😊😊👍🍰

  3. I would probably use teddybear shaped cookie-cutters 😊🐻 and then… I don’t know if I would eat teddybears 😱😨😭
    Naaa, just kidding: obviously I’m gonna it them: I’m not good at resisting to cookies 😍😋😋 especially chocolate cookies, and those looks delicious, indeed.

    And, for the serious part of the comment: nice touch the Royal Icing: I had heard of it in the past, but I think I’d never tried it, although I think I would also prefer using pasteurized egg white (I can find it in tetrapak in a grocery store in the same building where I live 👌

    Thanks for this easy (and fun! Lot of fun!) recipe, and happy holidays Emma 👍
