Decorated Cow Cookies

Are farm-themed cookies on your to-do list?  Then this cute little cow cookie is just what you need.

Cow CookieBelieve it or not this friendly little farm animal started out as a dress cutter.  I picked this one up at The Cookie Cutter Company.

Cow Cookie CutterTo make these cookies you will need:

  • Ivory piping and 20-second icing
  • White piping and flood icing
  • Black piping icing {make it a little on the stiff side} and 20-second icing
  • Red 20-second icing

Begin by using ivory 20-secong icing to create the lower portion of the cow’s face.

Cow Cookie 1After a few minutes, use white icing to create the body and top portion of the face.

Cow Cookie 2Next use 20-second icing to add hooves and stiffer piping icing for ears.  I used a leaf tip to change things up a bit

Cow Cookie 3Add a few final details to finish up the design.

  1. Pipe a tail with a #2 tip
  2. Add a tail and hair “poofs” using a #13 tip
  3. Use black 20-second icing to add eyes
  4. Add nostrils and maybe a line around the lower part of the face {see final photo}
  5. Use red 20-second icing to make a sweet little bandana
  6. Create cow print with black 20-second icing

Cow Cookie 4I love to mix colors and designs to add visual interest to my platters.

    What a creative use for a standard dress cutter. And I love that he’s wearing a bandana. Adorable!

    Sugar, love these. I have been out of the loop fpr months now being that I was in and out of the hospital for almost four months. More in than out. I think Ive shared with you in the past what my illness is. In fact I know I have. Anyway. you just have evolved so much since those four months have past. not that you were not amazing before. But my gosh ,these are too much. Too cutte and would put a smile on anyones face. Thank you for always being kind enough to share your ideas. I see cookie con is happening again. What a dream that would be for me to go. but with my ongoing hospital bills and not knowing if there is a cure for me close around the corner. I do not think I will make it there. It would be so awesome to meet all my cookie idols. Anyway love love the cows. Love all your new work and keep on trucking girl. Youre amazing inside and out. It is nice to be home and to start thinking about getting back into the grove of baking. My biggest therapy. got to retrain my hands for piping. I so can not wait to make my first batch. What a fun time of year to get back into it. Best and Blessings Stacey. BTW I see your fan page doubled in numbers while I was busy being taken back and forth to Duke. Congrats to you.
