Using Sour Punch Easter Straws & Twists

Sour Punch Easter Egg Cookie Decorating

What You'll Need:

COOKIE INGREDIENTS:

  • 7 tablespoons (93 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (83 grams) granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon (148 grams) all purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoon (7 grams) cornstarch

FROSTING INGREDIENTS:

  • ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon (130 grams) powdered sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (113 grams) butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt

DECORATING INGREDIENTS

Combine Ingredients to Create Cookie Dough

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter, sugar, and salt. Using the paddle attachment, mix until smooth and creamy – about 3 minutes. You can also do this by hand if you don’t have a mixer!

Add the egg yolks and vanilla and stir to combine.

Add the flour and stir on low speed until all the flour has disappeared into the dough.

Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place it on a sheet of parchment paper.

Using a rolling pin over the top sheet of parchment, roll the dough out to an even ¼” thickness.

Refrigerate Dough Then Cut Egg-Shaped Cookies

Slide the sheet of parchment-lined cookie dough onto a tray and place it in the refrigerator.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the cookie dough from the fridge and peel off the top layer of parchment.

Using an egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut cookies from the sheet.

Bake Cookies for 15 Minutes

Place the cookie dough eggs onto the baking sheet, spacing them evenly on the tray.

Bake for 15 minutes, until pale in the middle and light golden brown on the edges.

Let cool completely.

Make Frosting

In the bowl of stand mixer, combine the butter and salt.

Beat the butter for 3 minutes, until very creamy.

Add ½ of the powdered sugar and mix on low speed until combined.

Add the remaining powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until combined.

Turn the mixer speed up to medium-high, and blend until the frosting is very light and fluffy – about 5 minutes.

Decorate with Sour Punch Candy

Cut the Sour Punch Straws into a variety of sizes—very small, small, and medium, and full length.

Using an offset spatula or butter knife, dollop a small amount of frosting into the center of one cookie. Spread it around to cover the top of the cookie.

Use the various Sour Punch candies to decorate your cookies with squiggles, stripes, or polka dots.
