o make these incredibly cute cookies you will need to make some shortcrust pastry. I would advise you not to add nuts into the dough, because the cookies will become fragile and you don’t want your cookies to crumble as soon as you touch them, right? We want a bit firmer cookies because they are much easier to handle once you start decorating. Choose the shapes that correspond with the occasion. There are so many cookie cutter molds out there, you will most certainly find something you like, and no matter for what occasion you are making them.
Roll out your pastry until it is 4-5mm (1⁄8” – 1⁄4“) thick. Cut out desired shapes and place them on parchment paper lined baking tray. Bake cookies at 180°C (350°F) for about 10 minutes until they become nice and golden around the edges. Take them out and let them cool down completely.
While your cookies are cooling, prepare the fondant. Soften it and add desired colors. You will need a rolling pin, some powdered sugar, a brush and a cup with some corn syrup. Now sprinkle some powdered sugar on your table and roll out your fondant until its thickness subsides to 2mm (5⁄64“). Using the same cutter as before, when you were cutting the dough, cut out fondant for your cookies. Lightly brush fondant with some corn syrup and carefully cover the cookie so the sticky side is down and touching the cookie. Gently press with your palm to make it adhere well. Now – get inspired, let your imagination run wild and decorate your cookies with sprinkles and pearls to add some serious bling to them! It’s like designing clothes, just let your creativity guide you!
