Rudolph Cookies

Here are some simple cookies I made for the kinder christmas dinner tonight…. and when I say simple… I mean quick (which helps when you have a 2, 3 and 5 yr old ‘helping’ 🙂

If you are looking for something more adventurous, I suggest you take a look at the Master of cookie decorating, Callye from Sweet Sugar Belle who makes cookies like these

..And Paula from Vanilla Bean Baker who makes these amazing cookie wreaths

Start by making your sugar cookies and organising your equipment. I used a rolling pin, mat, white and red fondant, a black edible pen, syrup made from raspberry jam and hot water (apricot is best to use) and your cookie cutter (I also had some petal dust as I was planning to add some colour to Rudolph’s cheeks but decided on a minimalist approach in the end 🙂

Organise your helpers

…and your photographer

..and start by brushing your cookies with the syrup

Roll out the fondant and cut out the reindeer shape

Gently place the fondant over the cookie

Leave for 1-2+ hours so that the fondant hardens slightly

Using an edible marker, draw on the eyes

Roll the red fondant into a small oval shape and attach using a dab of water

Ta-Daa!

    Your fondant cutter/syrup brusher and your photographer are the cutest assistants ever! These Rudolph cookies are adorable. Thank you so much for the mention and the link-back. I appreciate it. Love how proud your daughter looks holding up her finished cookie.

    P.S. Her dress is adorable too!
