Beard Cookies for your Favorite Guy
Are you a beard loving kind of person? I am a beard loving kind of gal and every year I talk my hubby into growing a goatee. I don’t think he is super happy about doing it, but he grows it anyway and for a few months I love him even more because he does it for me. He might grow it to help keep his face warm during the winter months, but whatever the reason, I am glad he does it.
So you would think I would make him some beard cookies to show him how much I love him. You know why I don’t make him beard cookies? Because he doesn’t like sugar cookies. Yep. You heard me. He has never ever eaten one single sugar cookie that I have made.
So tonight, I will take him out to dinner for steak and potatoes because he is a total meat and potatoes kind of guy. I could serve him a plate of rolls and he like that so much more than these beard cookies. I wish he would eat them though because I could totally make some beards and lumberjack cookies and ask him if he “Wood be my Valentine.” But instead he will have to settle for rolls.
Supplies for Beard Cookies:
For each of these cookies you will need to cut out one of the scalloped oval cookies from the unbaked cookie dough.
Then, use the mustache cookie cutter to trim one end.
Next, cut a mustache cookie from the dough and place it next to the oval cookie and bake according to the recipe directions.
Once your cookie is baked and cooled, pipe the edges of the oval with the thick brown icing and the star tip. Work your way around the edges and repeat for the next row.
Continue until the entire beard is covered.
Then, outline and flood the mustach with the brown 15 second icing. Let it dry for a few minutes and then outline it with a zig zag pattern like in the first picture.
If you don’t want to make beards with the thick icing, you can outline and flood it with the brown 15 second icing.
Then, outline and flood the mustache.
Let it dry for a few minutes and then add the outlines.
Remember when I mentioned I wanted to make these for my hubby for Valentine’s Day? Here is what I had in mind.
Make a few beard cookies mixed with lumberjack cookies and you have the perfect set of “WOOD” you be my Valentine’s Cookies for your gorgeous man! 🙂
Maybe one day hubby’s taste buds will change and he will like sugar cookies, but until then, I hope you enjoy them and make them for your man. If you want to make the lumberjack cookies, click here.
