Onesie Cookies - Baby Shower Favors

For the baby shower that I made the Onesie cake for I also made Onesie Sugar Cookies that were the favors and we packaged them with M&Ms on the bottom so they would stand up in the basket. They were a big hit!



One of the things that my friend and I loved about the cookies was how well they came out. We used this great decorating method and here are the step by step instructions.
  • Roll out your cookie dough. Then using a cookie cutter cut out the shapes.
  • Remove the cookie impression from the dough.
  • Bake your cookies according to your recipes directions and let cool completely on a rack before decorating.
  • Make a batch of royal icing, thick enough to hold it’s shape when piped. Fill a decorating bag about a 1/3 full with Royal Icing. Tint with desired color or leave white. Fit with tip # 2 or 3.
  • Squeeze, while outlining the edge of the cookie. After outlining the entire edge, stop at the edge of the beginning line, touch and lift This is called the dam or seam.
  • Take the icing that you will use to fill in the center of your outline, add a little water to it. It needs to have a streaming not runny consistency.
  • Fill the outline in with the thinned icing, using a spoon or squeeze bottle. Be generous With a spoon gently push the icing into the corners and at the points.
  • Allow the icing to dry for at least 2 hours. After your cookie has had time to dry, you can add additional decorations or writing on your creation.

I had some extra sugar extra cookies so we dipped them in chocolate and served them at the shower!
