If your kids love Minecraft, they'll flip over these Minecraft cookies!
Step 1: How to Make Minecraft Pig Cookies
- Cookies made from your favorite sugar cookie recipe and cut using a square cookie cutter
- Icing made from your favorite royal icing recipe in dark pink, medium pink, light pink, black, and white (I used 12-count consistency icing for all the steps in this tutorial. If you need help with icing color or consistency, check out the How To Make Royal Icing section of 101 Essential Cookie Decorating Resources.)
- A food coloring marker in any color
- Icing bags or bottles, couplers, and tips (I used a #2 tip for all the steps in this tutorial.)
Start by using a food coloring marker to draw straight lines breaking each cookie up into eight rows and eight columns. This will give you 64 squares to fill with icing.
Using your printed template as a guide, fill in all of the squares labeled with the #1 with black royal icing. Before icing, you may want to mark the squares with your food coloring marker to help prevent mistakes. Complete this step on all of your pig Minecraft cookies and let the icing dry somewhat before moving on to the next color.
Repeat these steps for each of the additional four colors you are using on your pig cookies. Let the royal icing dry completely (preferably overnight) before stacking or packaging your cookies.
