Sesame Street Cookies

Remember my niece and nephew who adore Elmo? They turned two this past weekend and I made some Elmo and Cookie Monster cookies for their birthday party. Only this time, I had actual Elmo and Cookie Monster cookie cutters to work with. I tried making some Zoe cookies with the Elmo cutter but I didn’t realize that Elmo’s eyes were much higher than Zoe’s. Oh well.

Although these were more on the plain side and I was a bit rushed in making them, I was very happy with how they turned out. The colors are so bright, I can’t help but smile. I did, however, run into numerous problems with the royal icing. You can’t really tell with these pictures, but the cookies (especially the Cookie Monster ones) have lots of spots on them. Caused by either the butter soaking through or the humidity we’ve had around here. I’ve read several posts online about avoiding spots on cookies. This post by Sweetopia was especially helpful. I may try to bake my cookies just a tad longer or invest in another dehumidifier to avoid this problem in the future – it’s terribly frustrating!

The twins loved them! Apparently when my husband brought the cookies into their house, they had a fit until they could have one. And that’s all that matters!

      Thank you Dimitra! It’s actually a combination of outlining the cookie and then flooding it, with two different consistencies. If you’re interested in learning how, Sweetopia has some great tutorials at
