Baby Cookie Bites

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!

  32. I am giving these a try and it's my first time doing any kind of iced cookie. Did you outline the circle of icing first or just spoon it on? Wish me luck!!! I adore these!!!! THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Anita,
    I don't see an email or link for you, so...
    I did not outline these cookies. I just used an icing bag(filled with royal icing), a Wilton #3 tip, and spiraled around the cookie, starting from the outside edge, ending in the center. You may want to experiemnt until you achieve the right consistency for the royal icing~not too thick, not too thin, but just right:)
    Good luck and have fun!

  34. What did you use to draw the baby faces? Is that icing too?

  35. beccalovesart,

    I decorated the baby faces with a black AmeriColor Gourmet writer after the icing was completely dry.

    1. I use the sugar cookie recipe posted on my blog:

      http://www.munchkinmunchies.com/2009/05/no-fail-sugar-cookies.html

      It's been awhile since I made these, but I think the recipe makes about 150 cookie bites. I roll the dough out just under a 1/2-inch thick. Hope this helps:)
