A quick post to show how I made the cookies for the Chiplet’s party…
In full honesty, the cookies didn’t turn out perfectly shaped, but I think some of that was me being distracted with two kids in the background.
Basically, make a big batch of whatever sugar cookie dough you wish to make. Go ahead and cut out the shape you want for the middle…a bunch of them. Really try to get them an even thickness (one of my issues).
Then, you put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment/silicone liner and freeze until firm, about 10-15 minutes.
Take an egg white and whisk it with a teaspoon of water. Brush one of the shapes with it, then stack another on top. Repeat until you have a column of them. Press them together really well and smooth out the edges (see how my wheels are not lined up the best? Do better!) You don’t want the column too long…think of a standard cookie log when you slice and bake them.
Again, pop it back in the freezer until firm, about 15-20 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the outer layer. You can color it with any gel/paste coloring you wish (don’t use liquid).
Now, here is where I also went a bit wrong because I was trying to speed up the process…which by the way, is from Sugar Hero.
I just wrapped a piece of dough around, but instead you should make ropes of the outer dough and press it into the crevices, pinching all around. Then, roll the dough into a cylinder. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and freeze at least 2 hours.
Slice and bake the cookies as your cookie recipe dictates (generally at 350 degrees F until lightly golden).
So how did I make mine look more like cars?
I used edible food markers to outline each one. It helped so much!
