Fill champagne glasses with these sparkly frosted cookie bites.
And if you are wondering if decorating tiny cookies is tedious, yes. Yes it is. But these are really easy, too.
you will need:*
1/2 inch circle cookie cutter
disposable decorating bag
size “5” decorating tip
yellow food coloring
*Find the cookie cutter (this may be part of a set, or a fondant cutter), decorating bags, couplers, tips and sprinkles in the craft store. For food coloring, I use Americolor soft gel paste (Egg Yellow) For tips on finding supplies, click HERE.
step one: bake your cookies
Roll out chilled cookie dough according to the recipe and cut out 1/2 inch circles. This will be annoying. Bake according to recipe, reducing cooking time by about half, and let cool completely.
step two: prepare your frosting
Prepare frosting according to recipe and tint light yellow with just a drop or so of coloring. Prepare a frosting bag with the coupler and tip, fill with frosting and tie closed with a rubber band.
step three: decorate your cookies
Pour some sprinkles in a small bowl. Hold a cookie with the forefinger and thumb of your non-dominant hand. With your dominant hand, pipe a large dot of icing on a tiny cookie. Immediately dip the top of the cookie in the sprinkles.
step four: arrange your cookies
Let the cookies dry overnight and arrange in glasses. Add a tag if desired.
