I love making sugar cookies. They can be so fun!
Sugar Cookies are easy to transform for any theme. Since Pokemon GO has taken the world by storm, I thought some Pokemon sugar cookies fun!
If you haven’t noticed, it is Pokemon week. If you missed all the other Pokemon crafts and recipes, check them out here.
These cookies are made with my favorite sugar recipe. It makes a large batch. I got approximately 50 Poke Ball Cookies from one batch.
You will want a Stand Mixer for this recipe. You do not want to mix it by hand. The dough gets way too thick. You can try it with a hand mixer, but I wouldn’t. Stand mixer is the way to go.
You will need a Poke Ball Cookie cutter for cutting out the cookies.
When rolling out the cookie dough, flour is going to be your best friend. Make sure your surface is floured and that you keep flour on your rolling pin.
I love using royal icing for my sugar cookies. It allows you to create super cute designs. (check out these handwriting cookies)
I worked with one color of icing at a time when making these cookies. I started with the white first since I didn’t have add color to it.
Using the stiffer royal icing, you will outline the area you want in that color.
Please excuse the photos. I worked on these cookies REALLY late at night. I finished about 1 am. Sorry for not having awesome in process photos.
After you have the area outlined, you will flood the area with the thinner royal icing.
Once you have the cookies all decorated, you will need to allow them to dry for about 24 hours.
I carefully transferred the cookies to drying racks and placed them in an area where the kids couldn’t get to them.
