If you haven’t noticed, it is Pokemon week.

These cookies are made with my favorite sugar recipe. It makes a large batch. I got approximately 50 Poke Ball Cookies from one batch.

Tips for making Pokemon Cookies

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. A 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 will be your best friend. Ensure your surface is floured and that you keep flour on your rolling pin.

Tips for decorating Pokeball Cookies

I love using royal icing for my sugar cookies. It allows you to create super cute designs.

When making these cookies, I worked with one color of icing at a time. I started with the white first since I didn’t have to add color.

For decorating, I used a number 2 tip and disposable decorating bags.

You will outline the desired area in that color using the stiffer consistency royal icing.


Please excuse the photos. I worked on these cookies REALLY late at night. I finished at about 1 am. Sorry for not having impressive in-process photos.

After you have the area outlined, you will flood the area with the thinned royal icing.

Flooding cookies

Once you have the cookies all decorated, you will need to allow them to dry for about 24 hours.

All decorated!

I carefully transferred the cookies to cooling racks and placed them in an area where the kids couldn’t get to them.
