  • How to decorate a character cookie. Superman Cookies - Step 1
    Step 1

    Make your favorite sugar cookie recipe (mine is from Peggy Porschen's book "Pretty Party Cakes") and chill for at least 30 minutes. Then roll out your dough and use a Superman cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. (My cookie cutter was handmade by my husband, but if you can't find one you can also make a paper template to cut out the cookie shapes with a knife).

    Bake and let cool on a wire rack.

    Make your royal icing and divide into three portions - a small portion to be colored black, a larger portion to be colored yellow, and the largest portion to be colored red. Store the colored royal icing in separate airtight containers, and always keep covered when you are not using them.

    Pipe your Superman logo outline with stiff black icing. Let dry (about an hour) and then fill with runny red royal icing.

    Once the cookies are dry, I like to package them in small cellophane bags, tied with raffia and a custom favor tag. Once wrapped, the cookies will stay fresh for 1-2 weeks.
