Pineapple Sugar Cookies Tutorial: STEP by STEP

Alright…Let’s get to making those super fun cookies!  Here are the easy to follow instructions:

Materials:

Step 1:

Prepare sugar cookie dough.  I use my basic cut out sugar recipe.  You can use whatever recipe you desire, as long as they don’t spread too much when baking. 

Flour the surface and flour the  rolling pin…liberally.  Roll out dough until it about ¼ inch thick.

Using the tombstone cookie cutter, cut the cookies and place on parchment covered cookie sheets.  Bake per recipe.  Allow cookies to cool before decorating.

Step 2:

While the cookies are cooling, it’s time for fondant. Roll out the fondant to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut the fondant with the tombstone cookie cutter.  One piece per cookie.  Allow the fondant to harden.  

Step 3:

Melt the green candy melts. I recommend doing so in the microwave.  Using a glass bowl works the best melting in 30-second increments so you don’t accidentally overheat (which can make the melted candy harder to use). 

Once the candy is melted, dip the paint brush in the melted candy.  Brush the candy onto parchment paper about 2 inches long.  Allow to harden.  Once the pieces are hard, gently pull them off the parchment.

You don’t need a fancy paint brush for this, but I do recommend using one that is clean and hasn’t been used for paint.

Step 4:

Take cooled cookies and spread a very thin layer of white frosting onto the cookies.  Place the yellow fondant onto the frosting.  The frosting will act like glue once dry. 

Draw diagonal lines onto the yellow fondant using the decorating gel.  Using small drops of left over green candy as “glue”, attach green leaves to the top of the pineapples.  

Easy peasy and ready to eat!
