{Holiday Feature} Elf Cookies by The Bearfoot Baker

Merry Christmas everyone! My name is Lisa and I have a blog called The Bearfoot Baker. Anu was kind enough to let me hang out with you today so we could make some Christmas Cookies. As I looked through her selection of cookie cutters with a friend of mine, we came up with the idea of simple elf cookies made with an ice cream cutter.

Want to make some simple elf cookies for yourself? Here is how.

Supplies for Simple Elf Cookies:

Ice Cream Cutter
Flesh Colored Icing
Green Icing
Red Icing
White Icing
Brown Icing
4mm Black Edible Pearls

Have you made decorated sugar cookies before? If you haven’t don’t worry. Here is a Beginners Guide to Cookie Decorating full of videos, tutorials and tips.  You will find cookie recipes, icing recipes with videos on how to make it.

Begin by baking some ice cream cone cookies and a batch of royal icing. If you want to make a half batch of royal icing, click here for the recipe.

  • Outline the face with the flesh colored icing.
  • Outline the hat with the green icing.
  • Flood every other section of hat with green and let it dry overnight. Humidity will cause the icing colors to run together. This is called bleeding. The longer you let the icing dry, the less chance for bleeding.
  • Flood the face with the flesh colored icing and add 2 drops of white icing while the flesh color is wet. Drop in a 4 mm edible bead in each eye.

  • Next, flood the red sections on the hat and let it dry for about an hour.
  • Add a dot for the nose and a smile with the flesh colored icing.
  • Make the dark green trim on the hat.
  • Add a white dot of icing on the top of the hat.
  • Let it dry overnight.
