What You Need:
One Recipe Vanilla Sugar Cookies
One Recipe Royal Icing (colored red and black with white reserved)
Nesting round cutters or biscuit cutters
Cookie Treat Sticks for Cookie Pops
To make the cookie, I used two biscuit cutters, the largest and smallest of a three-cutter set. Cut out the largest circle, then use the smallest circle to cut a spot for the head to go, add the smallest circle cut-out in the open area. If you set them right next to each other, there is no need to squish them together, they will bake together just fine. (Sorry I didn't take any photos of the uniced cookies.)
*Note: Info on how to make the icing the right consistencies can be found on the Royal Icing Recipe post. I have yet to make a good post about getting these colors, which I know is hard. Just prepare yourself to use obscene amounts of food coloring to achieve the dark colors. And if you wait an hour or so after mixing up your colors, that helps, too. They darken as they sit.
