Robot, Sprocket, and Gear Cookies
When I was a little girl, I always wished I had a robot. You know, like Rosie from the Jetsons. She’d call me Miss C, clean my room, and
do help me with my homework, especially math. And if I was lucky, she might even come with a magic dinner maker too.
I thought by 2012 personal robots would be a reality, but since it doesn’t look like that’s happening anytime soon, I had to realize my dream in cookie form.
The main focus of this platter is robots, of course, but today I want to talk about the sprocket and gears. I love these cookies because they are the perfect combination of cute and simple.
After cutting out various flower cookies, use a circle cookie to clip the petals.
Bake them, then outline and flood. If you want to get super fancy, add a little sanding sugar to the edges. If you aren’t sure how to so this, I have a helpful how-to right here. If you need custom-colored sanding sugar learn how to make it here.
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the robots. You can find a full list of the cutters I used to make them by clicking HERE.
PS-Did you know that in Texas even the robots wear cowboy hats?
Hopefully I’ll have a robot of my own in a few years. In the meantime, I guess cookies will have to do.
