What you will need.
Rudolph nose cookie cutter.
Making your rudolph cookie pops.
After you’ve made your cookie dough , begin cutting out your cookies and laying them on your cookie sheet with enough room for the straws.
Place your straws in the center of your cookie. You can do this by picking the cookie up or inserting the straw with your cookies flat on the cookie sheet. Just make sure the straws go through the center of the cookie and do not come through the back.
After you have placed all of your straws into the cookies, don’t forget to freeze them before baking! You can read more about why here. After your cookies are baked and cooled, it’s time to start the fun part, decorating!
Decorating your rudolph cookie pops.
The first step is to make Rudolph’s nose. This has to be done first because you will be adding sprinkles and don’t want them to end up in the icing on other parts of the cookie.
Outline and flood the nose on the cookie.
Add your sprinkles while the icing is wet.
Let the nose dry for about 30 minutes. Gently tap the cookie to get any loose sprinkles off. It’s okay to have some sprinkles stay on. Next, flood and outline the rest of the cookie.
While your icing is still wet, add reindeer cheeks by piping red icing in a circle where his cheeks would be.
Let your cookie dry thoroughly, about an hour, and use a #1 piping tip to add Rudolph’s mouth.
And that’s it!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
