Easy Lego Cookies

So, we’ve covered LEGO MAN COOKIES, so I thought it would be a good idea to run through the simplest cookies of all, LEGO cookies.  I love these because they are one of the easiest decorated cookies I have ever made!

For the actual blocks I used simple rectangle and square cutters like THIS and THIS, but ANY will work!

Choose the colors you like {I liked primary colors} and outline the shapes with a #2 tip and fill.  At this point let the cookies dry overnight.

While the cookies were drying, I made a Lego template.  Real Legos are perfectly uniform, so I wanted my cookies to be also.  I do want to point out, I took a little liberty with the Lego design.  Large Legos {which is what these were really intended to be} actually have eight dots rather than six, but to keep them proportionate I cut a few out.

*PS, I know there are six-dot Legos, but even though these are six -ot Legos, they aren’t.  They’re the big ones.  Yes, I’m crazy.

Anywhoo…I promise, this is  okay, and in the long run it’s NOT a big deal.  Only OCD people like me will notice.  The rest of the world will think they are perfectly adorable!

To create a template placed the cutters I used onto heavy card stock and traced around them. I then used a ruler to even space the “dots”.  I used a hole punch to pre-make the holes so that I could use it over again.

After the template was complete, I used the PUSH-PIN TRICK to mark my cookies.

Once the cookies were marked, I used 20-SECOND ICING to apply {dime-size or so} dots to the cookies.  I used the same technique as I did for my SIMPLE DOTTY VALENTINE’S DAY COOKIES.

The most important thing to watch here is consistency!  Too thin and you will have craters.  It’s also a good idea to swirl the tip or a toothpick through the dots like I did HERE to reduce the risk of cratering.  Make them a little bit smaller than you want them to be because they will spread a little!

Let the dots dry {about two or three hours} and you will have the easiest Lego cookies you’ve ever made!

My boys love these, and I know your kids will too!  If you would like to add the LEGO MAN FACE to the mix click HERE to see the tutorial!

    Awesome! How did you do the frosting? Also- on the legoman face- what do you use to hand cut? Any special tool? Thanks again for the awesome idea! I’m thinking of making them this weekend for hubby’s birthday. He’d love em.

    Which sizes of the square and rectangle cutters did you use? I have the rectangle ones. The smallest one is definitely too small but the two larger ones could work. I was just curious if you used the medium or large for each the square and rectangle. Thanks!

  1. […] something else to keep in mind…these dots also work great for other things.  Ladybugs, Legos, eyeballs, and more.  So, it never hurts to make them in all […]
