Corn Dog Cookies

Corn dogs are the quintessential food on a stick! They also represent carnivals, fairs, summertime and just plain fun! Tasty too!
I have a daughter that really LOVES them! To illustrate:  On her birthday her husband told her to pick the restaurant of her choice for dinner, and she picked "Hot Dog on a Stick" at the mall. :) Love her!
Corn dog cookies would be fun for Father's day, the 4th of July, summer BBQ's, or a carnival-themed birthday party. Of course you would also want to serve the savory version. 
My husband was nice enough to bring me a corn dog when he was down in Santa Monica and stopped by the original "Hot Dog on a Stick" .  I used it for my template:) Consequently these cookies are the same size as their original counterpart.
Once again, I used my favorite sugar cookie/royal icing recipe combination. I did my best to get as close as possible to the corn dog color as I could (I had the real deal right next to me). Unfortunaely I didn't keep track of the amounts, but I used Wilton's* brown (mostly), orange, and a dash of "Christmas" red concentrated pastes to achieve the results.  For the "mustard" I used Wilton's golden yellow.
       
*I have Wilton products, but you can use the equivalent of whatever you have.

Instructions:
1.  Make cookie dough.
2.  Roll out dough and use template to cut out cookies with a small knife, and transfer to baking sheets.
3.  Insert cookie stick/skewer into each cookie.
4.  Bake according to cookie recipe.
5.  Let cookies cool completely on cooling rack.
6.  Prepare royal icing and add food coloring.
7.  Using the brownish  icing, outline corn dog cookies with a #3 Wilton decorating tip. Let dry for about 20 minutes. (Keep the other icing covered with plastic wrap until you need it.)
8.  Fill in the corn dogs with the brown icing.  I used a spoon to fill it and spread it, but you can use whatever technique you'd like.
9. Make sure they are completely dry. I left them overnight to dry.
10. With a Wilton #4 tip, I applied the "mustrard" icing to the cookies.
11. Leave cookies until dry.
12. Share, eat, enjoy!

Have Fun!

  22. Oh my, your creativity is boundless!!!! What a fabulous idea. These are too cute. I love all of your stick creations.

    It is so nice to be back and to be able to upload and to open blogger comments. that was tough being away for so long! Probably good for me to break the addictions.I am off to see your croissants. I haven't ever loved mine, but I have to say, I haven't ever had any like we had there. I should have felt guilty with how many I ate, but walk, walk walk and it turned out ok, only 2-3 lbs to lose!

  49. I've never known a dog who doesn't wolf down anything food-related at the drop of a hat. He's clearly a very discerning gentleman!
