Pikachu, Charmander, Bunnelby and the list goes on. These names were alien to me just a year ago and now I hear them non stop as Lil A debates their power, damage and strengths. In case you were wondering, they are all Pokemon characters and Lil A is into collecting Pokemon cards.
It all started last summer when a couple of his older friends gave him a few Pokemon cards and he was hooked. Slowly he figured out the trading part. He was so excited when he got his first EX card. Yes, it is supposed to be a big deal!
So when his birthday rolled by, I decided to surprise him with some Pokemon cookies. I ordered a few Pokemon cutters and got to work. As this was a school treat, I decided to minimize glazing.
I put some food color in the cookie dough and just colored the eyes and mouth with sugar and food color mix.
It made the impact I was hoping it would make. Lil A was all excited and he and his friends enjoyed the treats.
Here is a small trick I learned with this cookie. For best results, refrigerate the dough before putting it in the oven as well.
Here is how I did it.
