BB8 Sugar Cookies – How to
I made these and you can too. A little baking and pastry decorating experience is helpful, but don’t let that stop you.
Cookies = I use the sugar cookie recipe is from the package of Crisco Butter Flavor sticks. If you don’t have a food dryer (mentioned below) you need to let the baked cookies dry for a day before you ice them. This will prevent them from falling apart from the moisture in the icing. You then need to let the iced cookies dry for another 12 to 24 hours before transporting, shipping or sharing them. Or just eat them right away if you want to… they’re your cookies.
Icing = I use Wilton’s royal icing recipe found on the can of Wilton Meringue Powder. You will need to water down the icing after dividing and adding Wilton gel food coloring. Save some icing aside, you might need it later. The icing should be the consistency of yogurt or pudding. Add the water in small amounts, stirring with a small spatula or a butter knife will work. If you add too much water it will get runny and you will have to add more icing. Now get ready to decorate your cute little BB8 cookies. You will need two zip lock sandwich bags with a very tiny holes cut in one corner. Put some orange in one and gray icing in the other. If the hole is too big the icing will come out to fast when you squeeze it.
