Bat and Moon Cookies

Begin by making your cookie dough and here’s my sugar cookie recipe in case you’re looking for one to try. Do you need a royal icing recipe or a half a batch of icing recipe? Or do you want to see how to bake a cookie on a stick?

Once your cookie is baked and ready to decorate, outline it with the light gray icing and then flood it.

While the light gray icing is still wet, apply the darker gray icing randomly on the cookie leaving gaps of the light icing showing. As you can see, I added a little more gray in one spot so it would look like the picture of the real moon I was looking at.

Next, grab the Boo Boo Stick and start swirling the icing around. Be careful not to swirl too much or you will lose the moon cloud effect. If you don’t have a Boo Boo Stick, you can use the tip of a butter knife or an offset spatula.

I wasn’t super concerned icing being perfectly smooth because the moon has creators and this was one time that creators will work for cookies.

Now it’s time to add the paper straws so your bat and moon cookies will look adorable. Bakers Stock has a ton of cute paper straws and they are perfect for projects like this. I mean, who wants to look at a cookie stick when you can make it look so much better. I told you these cookies was super simple and I can’t wait to make more.
