Hanukkah Cookie Menorah

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized

Hanukkah starts this Friday at sundown and I thought you would enjoy this cookie candle menorah that we worked on for Hanukkah. This fun dessert and craft project makes a great centerpiece on the Hanukkah table. It is also a fun project that your kids can help out with because you can enlist them to decorate the cookies! Simply pick up these cookie cutters from Sur La Table, bake off a basic sugar cookie recipe in the candle shape with these lollipop sticks attached to your dough, and then decorate the cookies with royal icing and sprinkles. If your kids are helping out with decorating, don’t feel obligated to follow a design – let them decorate away! That way, the cookies will feel more festive and your kids will take a lot of pride in their cookie candle menorah when it is part of the Hanukkah table! When the cookie candles are finished, simply glue-gun the lollipop sticks to your favorite menorah. Enjoy!

    Where can I get the candle cookie cutter? Sur la Table does not have them.
    Thank you!

    Great idea. Just to clarify, you say to put the “stick on your dough”, do you mean the cookie AFTER it is baked before decorating it or on the raw dough after you cut out the shape but before you bake it? Thanks for taking the time to reply.
