Painted Sugar Cookies – Using DIY Edible Paint!

Painted Sugar Cookies!

We first used this paint to decorate Marshmallows – as seen here.

We froze the leftover paints and thawed them out to make these MEGA HUGE Father’s Day Cookies.

We used our favourite Sugar Cookie recipe that was given to me by my friend Rebecca.

Bec’s Sugar Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter (at room temp)

1 cup castor sugar

2 eggs

2tsp Vanilla Extract

3 cups plain flour (sifted)

1tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Beat the butter & sugar until pale and smooth, then add the vanilla and one egg at a time (beating between eggs). Mix the dry ingredients and fold into butter mixture.

Make a roll of the dough and wrap in cling wrap & refrigerate overnight.

Pre-heat oven to aprox 190 degrees c.

Roll out cold dough on a floured bench to about 4mm in thickness. We made our cookies HUGE but you can use any sized cookie cutter to make them.

Then it was time to paint them using the Edible Paint recipe below –

Simply poor out the Condensed Milk into some small containers or an Ice Cube tray and stir in some colour.

Then it was time to decorate our cookies before baking them.

Once decorated cook them for between 8 – 12mins in a pre-heated oven set to 190c (depending on the size of your cookies).

They were supper yummy!!!

    1. Hi Trilby,

      You sure can :). You just don’t want them to paint them with too much paint or they might get a little soggy. We’ve used this recipe on packet cookies, marshmallows and toast with great success :). Louise x
