Paint Palette Cookies

Bright and colorful paint palette cookies are super cute and easy to make.  Make them for the artist in your life, or just for fun.

Although I own a couple of paint palette cookie cutters both are a little larger than I like.  Rather than buying yet another, I used a paring knife to trim a heart.  For a cleaner edge try a moon cutter.  If you don’t have a heart cutter handy, a circle will work too.  Be creative.

You can go a step further use a tiny round cutter for a thumb-hole if you like.

To make these cookies you will need:

  • Light brown piping and flood icing
  • 20-second icing in the colors of your choice for paint

Begin by outlining and filling the palettes.  I kept things simple, but you could  use a wood-grain stencil to add a little more detail.

Once the base is partially dry, use 20-second icing to add “paint”.  It’s okay to be messy.  Real palettes usually are.

Let the cookies dry completely {8-24 hours}.  Pipe a paintbrush directly onto the cookie or create a cookie platter by adding paint brush cookies.  You can find the cutter I used HERE.
