It’s more than a bag, it’s a sugar skull cookie decorator. Follow these steps for a fun, creative, not to mention delicious project.
Start by baking sugar cookies. Follow your favorite recipe to make the dough. Roll out, bake and let cool completely. This step can be prepped ahead – store cookies in a Ziploc® brand container to keep them fresh.
Press out the air, seal and gently knead the bags to mix until the color is uniform. Kids can have fun mashing without making a mess thanks to the Smart Zip Plus® seal.
Press the icing to the bottom of the bag and twist and hold to make a piping bag shape. Use scissors to snip an ⅛ inch (3 mm) corner off of the bag.
Start decorating by outlining eyes, a nose and mouth, then add petals, polka dots and swirls in multiple colors. Add sprinkles and candy decorations before the frosting dries.
Add a small round pastry tip for more precise piping. Cut a ½ inch (12 mm) corner off of a new Ziploc® brand bag and fit the tip into the open corner, then squeeze the colored frosting into the bag with the tip.
Cookie stamps make it easy for kids to trace their design. Younger kids can use dots of icing as a “glue” for candies, sprinkles and just about any edible decoration they can imagine.
