With Thanksgiving around the corner, it is time to make some cute and yummy cookies for your Thanksgiving feast. These cookies are super easy to make and for sure, they will be a hit at your dessert table.
I couldn’t help myself and I had to make this owl pilgrim cookie design. I love owls and all the ways you can personalize them. This year I wanted to do something different. I have been stuck making turkeys for a while.
Like many of you, I own a hand full of cute owl cutters, but using an egg cutter is the easiest way to go.
These other square cookies with a mini owl cookie detail could be personalized with your guest's name and used on your table setting as a place card.
Now, let’s get the supplies. You will need the following:
- Easter Egg Cookie Cutter
- Square Cookie Cutter
- Mini Owl Cookie Cutter
Royal icing in Americolor warm brown, white, orange and black.
Big white confetti dots or fondant dots.
Brown food writer.
Disposable piping bags and squeeze bottles.
Couplers and Tips #1 and #2
Boy Pilgrim Owl Cookie
Begin by outlining and flooding the owl’s body. Set the cookie aside to dry for a few minutes.
Fill the belly with orange icing.
Using black icing, pipe and fill a flat top hat.
Attach the eyes with a dot of white royal icing.
Add black pupils and a tiny dot of white icing to the eye. This detail really brings cookies to life.
Pipe a band and buckle on the hat and using your brown food writer, draw the beak, the wings and the scallop details in the belly.
Girl Pilgrim Owl Cookie
Outline and flood the cookie with warm brown icing then, let it set for a few minutes.
Fill the belly with orange icing and immediately pipe small white dots.
Outline the bonnet in white and set aside the cookie to dry.
Attach the eyes, add black pupils and a tiny dot of white icing to the eye.
Fill the white bonnet with icing and sprinkle it with white sanding sugar.
Finish up by piping on lashes. I used tip #1, but using a tiny brush to paint on the lashes is another option.
These girls are ready!
Mini Owl Square Cookies
Outline and flood the square shape cookies and the mini owls.
Let them dry completely.
These cookies can be personalized with your guest’s names, they can be used as place cards and I can tell you they will be a hit!
You can also write a sweet Thanksgiving note and place them in your dessert buffet.
Follow the pictorial below to assemble the cookies.
I used my kopykake to copy the font of the letters. I am not particularly good when writing on cookies.
I also used a fine point brown food writer instead of icing.
The mini owls are detailed with the brown food marker as well. I used icing only to make the eyes.
Add a little disco dust to add a little sparkle!
