Hanukkah Cookies

To celebrate Hanukkah this year, I treated myself to some new cookie cutters and stencils. I was inspired by some cookies made by Callye of The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. You should check out her cookie blog; it’s absolutely fabulous! Here is my attempt at Jewish Holiday Cookies.

Chanukah Menorah Cookies

These are Chanukah Menorahs. This is a retro style menorah. Officially the menorah needs to have 4 candles on each side with one in the center. I like the look of this one though.

Here are little menorahs all lined up. These are my favorite cookies of the whole collection. I just love how they look!

Chanukah Dreidel Cookies

I really wanted to make these cookies square instead of round but I couldn’t find my square cutters. After searching and searching I just decided that I never had any square cutters and settled for round instead. Of course I found the missing cutters later. I guess I know what my cookies will look like next year!

Dreidel Stencil Cookies

You can really see the glitter on these cookies. I airbrushed all the cookies in this collection with a pearl shimmer color because I wanted the cookies to have a holiday glow.

Chanukah Star Cookies

These cookies are really elegant and can be used for any occasion, not just for Chanukah.

Chanukah Star Stencil Cookies

These cookies are so simple, crisp and clean looking. I love how this color combination works together.

Happy Hanukkah!

  • These are STUNNING! STUNNING! I LOVE the colors, and elegant is an understatement! Just wow! My fave is the snowflake! I am proud to have inspired anything about these!

    These are just fabulous! Would you mind sharing where you bought the stencils and which cutter set you used that matched them so perfectly? I’d love to give something like this a try this year on gingerbread cookies, my fave.

    • I bought the stencils and the cutters from Designer Stencils. They sell the stencils to match the cookie cutters so they fit perfectly! Good luck with your cookies, I would love to see how they turn out!

    Hi can you post the recipe for the royal icing?

    • LilMissCakes

      Here’s the recipe I use, I think it’s from Wilton.
      1 pound confectioners sugar
      3 Tbs. meringue powder
      6 Tbs. water
      Put the sugar and meringue powder in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Put the mixer on low and slowly pour in the water. Mix on low for 5- 7 minutes. Store in airtight container. The icing will probably be stiff, you will need to add water a little at a time to reach your favorite consistency. If you plan to color your icing, color it before adding water.
