Christmas Sweater Gingerbread Dogs

Gingerbread Christmas cookies

Gingerbread Christmas cookies can’t get more fun than doggies dressed for winter. And, this is a perfect no fuss project to make with kids; each dog taking on a life of it’s own with the creative use of a little fondant and sprinkles.

YOU WILL NEED:

Gingerbread Cookie Dough
Chocolate Cookie Dough
Dog Cookie Cutters: Labrador Retriever, Schnauzer, Poodle, Basset Hound, and Dachshund
Red and Green Fondant
Craft knife
Piping Gel
Snowflake Sprinkles
Christmas Tree Sprinkles

FOR THE COOKIES:

Start by baking the cookies in dog shapes using the cutters. Next, on a surface covered lightly in powdered sugar, roll out some fondant thinly. Use a dog cutter to cut out a body shape.

Next, use a craft knife (or duller cutter for kids) to trim parts of the fondant to achieve the clothing shape that you want.

Brush the back of the fondant with a very light coating of water and adhere it to the top of the cookie.

Use the contrasting fondant color and roll a small worm to create a cuff and adhere with more water.

Use the back of your craft knife (or a toothpick) to create indented texture on the cuff and to add stitched detail.
