Put all the powders (flour, cocoa, sugar and yeast) in a bowl and mix.
Also add chopped butter and eggs and start working.
Once you have a homogeneous dough, wrap it with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Take the dough again, roll it out into a fairly thin sheet and create your own trees (my mold had the star already integrated, but of course a normal tree without a star is also fine).
Arrange the saplings on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then bake for about 10 minutes at 180 ° C, in a preheated convection oven, then remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
Prepare the ice: put the sugar in a small bowl and add the lukewarm water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing well: you should get a thick but fluid mixture (if not, add a little more water or powdered sugar, depending on the situation, to make it more fluid or denser).
Once you have a nice smooth icing, add the food coloring and mix well to get a uniform color.
At this point you can proceed with the decoration: using a sac-à-poche with a very small hole, create the green base for your tree, then add sprinkles, mini Smarties or other decorations to create the decorations.
Let it rest at room temperature until the ice has dried well.
The Christmas tree cookies are ready, you just have to serve them.
