Guys, I think winter season is the perfect season for desserts. Warm baked treats grace the dessert table and everyone comes together to enjoy meals, then tea with sweets. Just like themed Christmas cookies, these winter trees are a classic to make every winter.

Powdered sugar adds the perfect dusting to top these sweet winter trees. They look like they’re in a little wintery forest of their own! These chewy treats perfectly go with tea or coffee.
