Did you ever get an awful Christmas present that you didn’t know what you do with? It hasn’t happened to me in quite a few years, but I can imagine on any one Christmas day, there are thousand—if not millions—of bad gifts being exchanged with accompanying nervous smiles and false reassurance.
Statistics show that half of all bad Christmas gifts are actually ugly Christmas sweaters.** What better way to celebrate such a universal tradition than with ugly Christmas sweater cookies?
** Not really.
Armed with my sweater cookie cutter, I created two dozen ugly knitted disasters. Like any bad gift, I do have regrets about my handiwork—some of these cookies are not as tacky as they could have been!

For each cookie, I have listed the additional components I used to create them and links to online stores which carry them.
These sweaters are a great cookie project because there’s no right way of decorating them. Just like the wedding dresses I made previously, they can be done in any way your imagination takes you! They’re a great way to use up mismatched decorating sugars or extra royal icing decorations. The Santa-filled sky is the limit!
