olympic ring cookie bites

After spending years decorating skis, bobsleds, figure skates, ice hockey players, snowboards and the like, I’m all about simplifying simplifying simplifying. These rings are about as simple as you can get.

how to make olympic ring cookies

you will need:*
2 different size mini circle cutters
frosting colors (blue, green, yellow, black and red
5 disposable frosting bags
5 couplers

5 size “5” decorating tips
5 rubber bands

*Find the cutters (I used a 1/2 inch fondant cutter and a 1 1/2 inch cookie cutter) and frosting bag supplies in the baking aisle of your craft store. Find concentrated pastes there, too, though I use Americolor soft gel pastes, a bit harder to find. Click on the link for tips where to buy. (I used Super Black, Sky Blue, Electric Green, Egg Yellow and Red.)

step one: bake your cookies
Roll out chilled cookie dough and cut out circles with the larger cutter. (If you’re nerdy like me, you’ll cut out a multiple of 5 so each color is represented the same number of times.) Cut out the center of the circles with the smaller cutter. Place on a parchment paper lined baking tray and bake according to the recipe. Let cool completely.
step two: prepare your frosting
Prepare frosting and divide between the five colors. Tint red, blue, black, yellow and green. Prepare frosting bag with couplers and size “5” tips. Fill with each color and tie closed tightly with a rubber band.

step three: decorate your rings
Simply pipe a ring on each cookie with the 5 colors.
