Chubby Pencil Cookies

As much as I’d love to, I can’t take credit for this adorable idea.  The genius behind these chubby pencil cookies is my friend Samantha, of Flour de Lis, who you may remember from this post.

These cookies made previous appearances as part of my Nerdy Bookworm Platter and also here.  I love them because they’re the perfect combination of simple and sweet.

Easy Pencil Cookies

When Sam suggested using a candy-corn cutter for a pencil, I kind of fell in cookie love.  For years I’ve been dreaming of a cute pencil cutter and all this time it was right in front of me!  You can control the “chubbiness” by cutting at different angles.

To make these cookies you will need:

  • Pink piping and flood icing
  • Yellow piping and flood icing
  • Gray piping and flood icing
  • Light fleshtone 20-second icing
  • Black 20-second icing

Tip: Keep things simple by outlining in black or using 20-second icing for the base and black piping icing to add details.

Outline the cookie as shown below.

Fill alternating sections of the cookie and use 20-second icing to add a black tip.

This idea would also work well for crayon cookies.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Happy Monday!
