Come New Year’s Eve, everyone expects a glass of bubbly. While keeping the Champagne flowing is never a bad thing, if you want to take your celebrations to the next level, consider adding a sweet twist to the classic. Why not include Champagne flute cookies in your New Year’s Eve spread?
They are sparkly and delicious, so they’ll fit right in — plus, they’re a natural crowd-pleaser. Anyone who loves a good glass of bubbles certainly won’t be able to resist it in cookie form.
Making your own Champagne flute cookies is easier than you might think. Follow along with the steps below.
First, you’ll need to pick up a glass-shaped cookie cutter. You can splurge on a handmade copper cutter from Etsy, or snag a wallet-friendly flute cutter at Sur La Table and Amazon. You’ll also need to grab some piping bags for decorating the cookies.
Next, whip up your favorite roll-out cookie recipe. If you need some inspiration, there’s an awesome recipe included in this roundup of classic Christmas cookies.
Once all your little flute-shaped cookies are baked and cooled, then the really fun part can begin: decorating! Take a look at this video tutorial from Dulcia Bakery to learn how to jazz up simple sugar cookies.
There are a few options for frosting. Depending on how much time you have, you can whip up royal icing from scratch. Or you can use pre-made icing, which comes in multiple colors and a fool-proof pouch.
Sweets to Impress recommends an outlining technique when frosting the cookies in which you use a thicker white icing to create definition in the “rim” of the glass and along the edges, and then fill it in with thinned “flood icing.” Finally, top off each cookie with frosting bubbles or sprinkle bubbles.
Now, you’re all set for a memorable midnight cookie toast!
