Christmas Petit Fours {Christmas Cookie Week #ChristmasCookies}

Pin It Now!
Hello everyone! I cannot believe it's Day 4 of cookie week already. It's been so fun sharing some of my Christmas baking with you! I hope you have been inspired and found a new recipe or two from among the 8 bloggers partying together!

My 'cookie' today is actually something very simple for the non-baker! It's made with pound cake that you buy at the grocery store, and then you add special touches at home to create a special little somethin' somethin' that looks pretty on any Christmas plate!

This is also a great project to make with kids and perfect for the super busy mom who doesn't enjoy baking.
Here's how it's done!

Christmas Petit Fours

Ingredients:
Pound cake, cut into one inch cubes
Icing sugar {powdered sugar for frosting}
Red food colouring
Christmas sprinkles

Directions:
1. Using a medium size bowl, make thin icing with water and icing sugar. Add red food colouring.Make sure that it's fairly thin to that the pound cake cubes can be coated with the frosting.
2. Place one or two pound cake cubes on a skewer. Dip into frosting in bowl and use spoon to help pour frosting over cubes until fully coated.
3. Place cubes on cooling rack and add sprinkles to tops. Let dry.

Then add the pretty petit fours to a plate and serve.
They look so fancy for very little work!

And they taste delicious too....just like tiny bites of cake!


Don't forget to skip on over to see what the rest of the Christmas Cookies Week Gang is making today too!


Thank you so much for visiting! 



See you with another cookie treat tomorrow!

I always like the idea of petit fours because they are so tiny and cute. Now that I know how simple they are, I might have to add some to my Christmas goodies list! Thanks for sharing!

These are adorable, but the best part of petit fours for me are the thin layers of cake and frosting inside. I'd be disappointed biting into these! But they are beautiful.
