Decorated Peeps Cookies…in Disguise

Okay, okay, I admit it. I love Peeps. And not just the marshmallow kind, I love cookie Peeps too.

As a matter of fact, I love them so much that this is third time I’ve made them on this blog. Just when you thought you’d seen every possible spin on this old fave, I’m back with a new twist. Peeps cookies, in disguise!Decorated Peeps Disguise
Peeps in Disguise Cookies SweetsugarbelleOnce upon a time, if you wanted to make Peeps cookies, you had to get creative. These days, Wilton has you covered. You can now buy Peeps cutters in a variety of sizes. I used the smaller bunny from this set, but if you prefer larger cookies, these are the cutters for you.

To decorate these cookies you will need:

Begin by using a #2 tip to outline and fill the cookies as pictured below.

How to Make Peeps Cookies 1After a minute or two, use tweezers drop the decorations of your choice onto the wet icing. I’ve always been a sucker for nerdy glasses.

If necessary, reposition with a toothpick or 2-in-1 tool.

Word of advice, a thick layer of sugar can get pretty heavy. Be careful not to over-sprinkle or the icing may spill over the outline.
