These little babies are my new favorite cookie! They are so easy, and just as cute, if I do say so myself:)
I took a couple of full platters to a baby shower that my daughter's friends from church put on for her. Though tiny, they were a huge hit! People were even sneaking them out the door in paper cups:)
I made these same cookie bites once before, in April, when my other daughter had a baby. I piled them into a cute jar, wrapped a pink ribbon around the lid, and finished it off with a darling tag. My daughter loved it and the cookies were so tiny that the munchkins didn't experience sugar overload with a small handful.
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and royal icing (I know I sound like a broken record, but I might as well stick with the best). The little cookies were cut out with a 1-inch round cutter (it was a component of another cutter-letter "R", I think. I actually have a few of these tiny cutters). They were rolled out about 1/2-inch thick.
The royal icing was tinted according to Callye's ( The Sweet Adventures of Sugabelle) formula for achieving the light skintone color: 2 parts warm brown + 1 part ivory~AmeriColor soft gel paste. Worked like a charm! Thanks, Callye!
I was newly inspired to make these again when I spied Paula's (Vanilla Bean Baker) adorable ladybug cookies the other day. I decorated the baby faces with a black AmeriColor Gourmet writer after the icing was completely dry. How simple is that? :)
The Baby Cookie Bites are so delicious and fun to eat, but be careful, it's easy to get carried away!
