Ingredients:

Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix

10 large marshmallows

Betty Crocker Cookie Icing (white and orange)

Wilton Decorating Icing Tubes in Black, Red, Green, Blue and Pink

Method:

Mix cookie mix according to directions, or prepare your favorite cut out sugar cookie recipe, then just grab a golf ball sized chunk and squish it down until it’s about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Do not worry about the shape or how lumpy it is, the more misshapen the better! Bake according to recipe directions.

Once the cookies are cool, load them up with the cookie icing and spread it around with the back of a spoon, let some dribble over the edge for a “puddle” look.

Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray, and place marshmallows on the plate. Set the microwave for 30 seconds, but watch the marshmallows as they cook. Stop the microwave as soon as the marshmallows start to get puffy, do not let them double in size.

Spray your fingers with cooking spray or grease them up with shortening, and carefully pull the marshmallows off, by the base, and set them on top of the frosted cookies.

Then just decorate as you’d like with the Wilton frosting, or your own homemade frosting!e, Wilton Royal Icing Mix to ice the cookies

Wilton Royal Icing Recipe

Ingredients:

3 tb Wilton meringue powder

1 lb Sifted powdered sugar

6 tb Water

Method:

IF using a counter top mixer, beat all ingredients at low speed for 7 to 10 minutes until icing forms peaks. If you are using a hand held mixer, it will take more like 10-12 minutes. AFTER you get stiff peaks, you’ll want to transfer about 1/2 into a bowl and add a 1/2 a teaspoon of water at a time while stirring until the consistency is slightly runny. To test for the right consistency: Using a knife, scoop a little of your runny icing and hold above the bowl. As it drips, count to 10. By the count of 10, the icing that dripped down should meld into the icing in the bowl so there is no indication of where your drips landed. Put your icing in a container covered with a wet paper towel and a lid.
