- Royal icing
- Food coloring
Minion cookies Supplies
- Number three piping tip
- Pastry bag
- Rubber spatula
- Mixing bowls
Minion cookies Directions
- After your dough has been rolled out and refrigerated for half an hour cut 2×3 inch rectangles from the dough.
- Place the rectangles onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies have browned on the edges.
- Move the cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to completely cool.
- When your cookies are cooling prepare your royal icing.
- You will need to divide the royal icing into six different bowls with a larger amount of icing in two of the bowls. The two larger amounts of icing one needs to be colored blue and the other needs to be colored yellow. The four smaller amounts of icing need to be colored 1 black, 1 grey, 1 red and 1 white. Place your icing into separate pastry bags with straight #3 tips.
- With your yellow icing add the minions had to the bottom two-thirds making sure to close off the bottom of its body with the royal icing repeat this with each cookie. Remove the yellow icing from the pastry bag and thin it out to a six-second icing. Flood the minion shape with yellow thinned icing and use a toothpick to move the icing around to fill in any holes.
- Using the red icing add a Santa hat to the top of each minion hat. Remove the icing from the pastry bag and thin it out to a six-second icing and flood in each Santa hat with this icing.
- Using the blue outline the whole outer edge of the cookie. Fill the royal icing to a three-second icing and flood in the rest of the blue area using a toothpick to move the frosting around to fill in any holes. While the icing is still wet place small dots of the white icing into the blue to make a little snowflakes.
- Add the rim and the top cotton ball of Santas hat with the white royal icing.
- Take the gray royal icing and pipe on the minions glasses.
- With the black royal icing add the sides to each of the glasses.
- Thin out your white royal icing to a six-second royal icing consistency and fill in each minions eyeball.
- With the black royal icing at the pupils of the minions eyes. Allow the cookies to dry for an hour.
