How To Make Penguin Cookies in Penguin Sweaters

So we just couldn't resist making these silly little Penguin sugar cookies for our Christmas cookie tin. Yes, we could have gone traditional and kept them straight from the North Pole, but aren't Penguins in Penguin Sweaters just the cutest? We think so. We started with our Chocolate Cookie Dough Recipe so that they're already dark in color. We then used our penguin cookie cutter to cut out little fondant sweaters and put our stitching tool to good use by adding lots of stitched texture. Add a premade sugar penuin and voila!..you've got yourself the perfect cutie cookie.

How To Make Penguin Cookies in Sweaters

STEP 1: BAKE COOKIES AND ADD FONDANT SWEATERS

Using the penguin cookie cutter, cut and bake the cookies according to our Chocolate Cookie Dough Recipe instructions.

Chocolate Penguin Sugar Cookies

On a surface dusted with powdered sugar, roll out some light blue fondant very thinly, like 1/8" or so (it just tastes better). Use the cookie cutter to cut out a penguin body and then a craft knife to cut the sweater shape.

Before attaching the sweater to the cookie, place it on the cookie and then stretch it a bit to make sure it's a good fit (we had to do this on every cookie). Then use a paintbrush or your finger to moisten the back of the sweater and attach it to the cookie surface.

STEP 2: STITCH SWEATERS AND ATTACH PENGUIN SUGAR DECORATIONS

Use the stitching tool to give the sweater knitted texture. We went with straight lines, but do whatever you think looks cool.

Stitched texture on fondant

Use a squeeze of piping gel to attach the penguin sugar decorations. (Water will not be strong enough for this so we really recommend piping gel or royal icing).

Roll a tiny, tiny ball of fondant for the penguin eye and attach with a touch or water. Boom!...now you have Penguins in Penguin Sweaters to deliver to all your cookie loving friends!
