Dipped in chocolate and covered with pistachios, you’ve never tasted a sugar cookie quite like our Christmas Tree Sugar Cookies.
There’s no better feeling than taking a bite out of a warm, soft cookie fresh out of the oven. Sugar cookies are already a fan favorite no matter what season you are in, and I love coming across one that veers off the beaten track. Like our Christmas Tree Sugar Cookies.

How to Make Christmas Tree Sugar Cookies
Tree cookie cutter
As well as a rolling pin, parchment paper, and a microwave-safe bowl.
For full instructions, please view the recipe card below:
Preheat the oven to 350 F
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Using a large bowl, whisk together the ingredients, beating in the eggs individually until mixture creates a dough.
Place dough on a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for approximately 1 hour.
Once chilled, remove and roll out cookie dough into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle.
Grab your tree cookie cutter, cut out your design and place on baking sheets to bake for approximately 10 minutes.
While baking, prepare your chocolate chip dip and dip each cookie then immediately transfer to parchment paper to set.
Sprinkle on pistachios and allow cookies to set.
Tips for Perfect Sugar Cookies
I recommend using a rolling pin that has a bit of weight to it, like a marble rolling pin or nonstick rolling pin.
You can also use the old method of flouring the pin, but with both, it is not necessary. You do want to make sure that you don’t completely flatten the dough- which is easy to do if you’re pressing down hard.
You want your trees to have a slight thickness that’s easy to bake, so 1/4 inch thick would be enough, or else you risk having a Dipped Christmas Tree Cookie with a doughy middle.
