Max and Ruby Cookies Tutorial: STEP by STEP
Alright…now for the yummy bunny cookies! These cookies are REALLY, REALLY simple. If you are new to royal icing, these are a great place to start. You can also use rolled fondant to achieve the same look if the though of icing makes you panic!!
- Piping bag, Icing tip 1/2, coupler, and clip. I recommend this piping tip set. It’s reasonably priced and includes everything you need.
- Royal Icing. You can buy that mix or here is a great royal icing recipe to use!!
- White fondant (only if not using royal icing!)
- Sugar Cookies. I used my favorite go to sugar cookie recipe.
- Tooth shaped cookie cutter
- Parchment paper
- Food Marker (black)
Prepare the cookie dough per the recipe. Once the cookies are ready to cut, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick. I find that thicker cookies actually bake the best and are the most tasty.
Use the tooth cookie cutter to shape the dough. Place the cut cookies on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake per recipe.
Suggestion: Be careful not to over-bake the cookies…pull them out of the oven BEFORE they start to brown.
Let cookies cool and transfer to parchment covered counter or rack. Do not decorate until cookies are completely cool. It is best to bake the cookies the day before you decorate them.
If using royal icing (if using fondant, skip to step 4):
Prepare the royal icing. You will only be using white icing, so no food coloring needed! Hooray!
The icing should be 15 second icing that is easy to pipe for a border and fill in the cookie.
Put the coupler and tip or just tip into the piping bag and fill with icing.
Tip: I put my icing onto plastic wrap and twist the wrap up until I have a tail to push through the bottom of the piping bag. I then cut the tail and attach the tip to my coupler. This saves time and mess!!
Outline the cookies with white icing.
Fill the center of the cookie with white and using a toothpick, rub out any imperfections in the icing. Allow the icing to dry.
If using Fondant (skip this step if using royal icing):
Roll out the white fondant to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut using the tooth cookie cutters. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to stiffen slightly. Place on top of the cookies. I used a little bit of frosting to help the fondant stick, but if the underneath side of the fondant is still soft, it will stick with a few drops of water.
Allow the fondant to fully harden on the cookie.
Using the black food marker, draw Max’s face onto the cookies. If the marker seems to catch or sink while drawing, your icing/fondant is not fully dry…allow more time to fully harden.
Tip: When drawing on royal icing, remember to be gentle and not press too hard so you don’t break the icing!
Your cookies are now ready to eat and enjoy!!
