To be clear… these cookies are not magnetic. I feel like magnetizing cookies would be dangerous for ingestion. But the same concept of the magnetic poetry kits applies: mixing and arranging a given set of words to create poetry, sentences, and brilliant insights.
how to make magnetic poetry kit cookies
you will need:*
cut out cookie dough
square cookie or fondant cutter
knife or pastry scraper
little spoon or knife
1 disposable decorating bag
1 size “3” decorating tip
white food coloring
black edible writer
*For the cutter, I used a 1 1/2 inch square, which I got from Michaels craft store. Find the bag, tip, and coupler at a craft store. You can also find colors and edible writers at the craft store, but I used Bright White Americolor soft gel paste food coloring. And I used an Americolor black Gourmet Writer.

step one: bake your cookies
Roll out chilled dough according to recipe. Cut out squares, then with a knife or a pastry scraper, cut the squares in half to make little rectangles. Bake according to the recipe and let cool completely.
step two: frost your background
Prepare frosting and mix some (about a cup, depending on how many cookies you have) white. Prepare frosting bag with coupler and size “3” tip, fill with about half of your white frosting and tie closed tightly with a rubber band. Pipe a rectangle outline on each cookie and let set about 15 minutes.
Thin remaining frosting with water, a few drops at a time, until the consistency of thick glue. Using a small spoon or butter knife, pour a little bit of frosting on each cookie and let spread to edges. (Because the cookies are so small, this was pretty easy. I just used a little knife, took a dab of thinned frosting and sort of spread it on each cookie.) Let set well, a few hours or overnight.
step three: write your words
When the white background has fully dried, write your words with the gourmet writer. Personalize the words or for word list ideas, click here.
step four: play
This one is self-explanatory.
