Finding the perfect shape for cookies has never been easier than it is with Makerbot. After printing an amazing set of Doctor Who cookie cutters (designed by dgwilson) for a friend I thought I’d try my hand at fancy decorative baking, not my usual project but I think it turned out well.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
I followed the recipe from Nigella Lawson with some minor changes. Here’s my version:

Cookies

¾  cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, softened
¾  cup sugar
2 large eggs
1  tsp. vanilla extract (follow this Instructable to make your own!)
2 cups AP flour, plus more if needed
1  tsp. baking powder
1  tsp. salt
1 3D printed TARDIS cookie cutter
2 baking sheets, lined with parchment paper
1 bottle blue gel paste food coloring


Frosting

2  Tbsp. hot water
1  cup confectioner’s sugar

Step 2: Cream 'em

Start by creaming your butter and sugar until it becomes a light and fluffy mixture. 

Step 3: Make them TARDIS blue

Add a small amount of food coloring (start with less than you think you’ll need, coloring strength can vary and while you can always add-to you can’t take-out), mix thoroughly adding more food coloring if necessary to achieve desired color.

Step 4: Bring on the eggs

Mix in eggs & vanilla extract (preferably Uncle Chris’ Fancy Vanillin Extract).

Step 5: Bring on the dry team

Split dough into 2 flat discs and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

Step 7: Roll out

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Lightly flour work surface and rolling pin. Keep your rolling pin floured as this dough can be a bit sticky. Roll 1 disc of dough to 1/4″ thick.

Step 8: Give them the cut

Use the cookie cutter to cut out the cookies, then lightly press the cookie stamp into each cookie. 

Step 9: Send them around the sun

Throw these in your preheated oven (you set it to 350 right?) and bake for 8-12 minutes.

Really good, although personally I would have had added more food coloring to make a darker blue.
