Simple Owl Cookies-In Winter Colors

Owls are still very popular and they still make my heart flutter. I wanted to make simple owl cookies in winter colors.

Simple Owl Cookies can be used for Decorated Christmas Cookies via

I loved making the colorful Owl Cookies in August and wanted to make more. I don’t normally remake designs but “HOO, HOO” can resist a cute little owl!

Supplies for Simple Owl Cookies:

15 Second Icing in these colors:

  • AmeriColor Electric Green
  • Gray
  • Aqua Blue=Mix AmeriColor Electric Green and AmeriColor Sky Blue. Mix a little at a time until you get the blue you want.
  • Pale Ivory= White icing with a touch of AmeriColor Ivory.
  • Royal Transfer Eyes

For the cookie, I used the same cutters as I did here.
First, draw a pattern onto the owl with a food safe marker like these. You need to use a light color so it won’t bleed through the white. Then, outline and flood the tummy and eye area. While the icing is still wet, add the royal transfer eyes.

Next, begin making the scarf by making lines leaving a space in between each one and let dry for at least 30 minutes. For some reason, I outlined the tale of the scarf with the green icing in this photo but, didn’t do the other owls like this. You can do it however you want to. You could even outline the entire scarf and fill in the squares. Do what makes you happy!

Hope you enjoy making these as much as I did.
