We love playing with our food. Do you remember these Bella cookies? Well these are similar, only modeled after Frida Kahlo. We served these at a little art party we hosted for our nieces and nephews. Famous artist sugar cookies? Yes, please! And, they were indeed a hit.These are super easy to make too! First, make a batch of sugar cookies. You can use any recipe you prefer, or slice and bake. Here's our favorite sugar cookie recipe:
Sugar Cookies, makes around two dozen (depending how big you make each).
1 cup softened butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
Cream together the butter and powdered sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract. Stir in 1 cup of flour, just until combined. Scrap down the sides of the bowl and add the remaining flour and salt. Stir until a dough ball forms. Form a big ball, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour (up to overnight).
Roll out the dough and cut out desired shapes. For faces simply cut the dough into large circles. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes. Once the edges begin to brown remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.To decorate cover the cookies in vanilla frosting (store-bought or your own favorite recipe). Cut red gumdrops for the cheeks. Cut up black licorice for the hair, eyes, eyebrows and mouth. For Frida don't forget the uni brow. :) We used Wilton candy flowers (bought at Walmart) for Frida's famous flower hair-wrap. Serve to any little artists you know. Enjoy! xo. Emma
