Deconstructed Angry Birds Cookies


Mishu requested Angry Birds cookies for her classmate as Christmas gift..Sorry to said that the Angry Birds cookies that I baked and the designs doesn't look like the Angry Birds in the game accordingly to Mishu.I tried my best to created Angry Birds cookies to my ability but sadly the design and shape is not really up to the expectation.You can see the cookies is croaked ,the icing tracing and color look so awful!! The most difficult parts was to make the consistency of royal icing for makeup..I don't have proper Angry Birds cookies cutter,so to make the best out of the shape I used pumpkin shape cookies cutter for Red Angry Birds and Piggy .As for the Yellow Birds cookies,I just used knife and cookies spatula to cut the triangle shape..Tada!! that done to shape the cookies!! The most difficult part is to trace the face with icing and make up the cookies with various color using royal icing..Since it's my 1st time making icing cookies,I have problem balancing the consistency of the royal icing for the smooth surface.Honestly, it's a painful project that my daughter gave me.Maybe I should practice more using royal icing on cake and cookies? As the they said Practice make perfect? By the way I adapted the sugar cookies recipe HERE!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all my faithful readers,friends and family!!





Ingredients
For Dough:

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp All Spice powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt

Royal Icing:
2 pounds sugar powder,sifted
10 tbsp warm water or more
6 tbsp meringue powder (I used Wilton's)
1 tsp cream tartar

Thinned Royal Icing:

To thin for pouring, add 1 teaspoon water per cup of royal icing. Use grease-free spoon or spatula to stir slowly. Add 1/2 teaspoon water at a time until you reach proper consistency.










Method:

1:In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder,nutmeg,All Spice and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
2:Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.(I used pumpkin cutter for Piggy and Red Birds face) Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
3:Bake 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely in wire rack before icing.


Pig Angry Birds Cookies
ingredients for icing
mixing red color for royal icing..for cookies icing the consistency have to be thin if not it's not spread out evenly  because it's harden too fast.. adjust the thin consistency and amount of water  needed by 1 tbsp each pouring
