Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! I got so many requests to make something Emoji
themed, so I thought hmmmm,. The new Emojis are coming out in July so it
couldn’t be more perfect timing. So today, we are gonna be making Emoji Cookies,
and I’m gonna show you how to make a few of my favorite ones. Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: Sugar cookie
mix, I’m using the instant Betty Crocker mix because, it’s yummy! It’s
easy! And this recipe calls for 1 sh-tick of butter and 1 egg, but you can use whatever
sugar cookie recipe is your favorite! You’ll also need a big mixing bowl, and
I’m using an electric mixer, I like the hand mixers when I’m making sugar cookies,
a rolling pin, an array of cookie cutters, we’ve got 2 hearts, 1 small, 1
larger, a triangle for the poo Emojis, a circle and a square. You can also see that I have got a ton of
rainbow cookie icing, because we’re gonna decorate a lot! Alright, let’s put it all together! Winky face! The first thing you’re gonna do is take
your big mixing bowl, and pour in your cookie mix. Then you’re gonna add your sh-tick of butter,
then you’re gonna add your egg. Then I’m gonna take my hand mixer and I’m
gonna mix together for about 2 minutes on a medium speed. Once your dough is all mixed together, and
you can go like this and it doesn’t stick to your hands you’ll know it’s ready.
What you’re gonna do is take a little bit of flour, sprinkle it down on
the table so that your cookies don’t stick to the table. Then take your dough,
plop it down. I like to take a little bit more flour, sprinkle
it on top, roll it out. And now we’re gonna cut out all of our Emoji
shapes. So we’re gonna cut out some circles, cut
out a square, cut out a heart and the triangle, my little favorite, my little
poo! Now you’re gonna peel off the excess dough
around your shapes, and transfer your cookies onto the baking sheet with a spatula. To make your little poop Emojis you’re gonna
take a little heart, and we’ve got our triangle cookie already cut, and you’re
gonna use the tip of the heart, the little edge, and we’re gonna cut 3 nooks,
going up. And then you’re gonna take your fingers,
meep-meep-mer-meep! And you’re just gonna round the edges, and
here you’re just gonna take your 2 pointer fingers, and pull down just a little
bit and tilt to the side. Once you’ve got your sugar cookies on the
sheet, you’re gonna set your oven to 350 and you’re gonna bake between 5 to
7 minutes. But you’re gonna want to keep your eye on
these cookies! As soon as the sides start to turn golden brown you’ll
know they’re ready! Once your cookies are done baking, make sure
they’ve had plenty of time to cool, I put them on a drying rack for about a 1/2
hour. And now they are cooled off and they are ready
to decorate! We’ve got all of our rainbow cookie icings,
and I’m gonna start with yellow! This big bag of yellow cookie icing. Alright, what I’m gonna do is on the circle
ones, trace all the way around. This is the easiest way I have found to frost
a cookie, you outline it, and then you let it set for just a second and
then you fill it in. Once you’ve got the top of your cookie frosted,
you’re gonna want to wait about 10 minutes, just let the icing set before
you put a color on top of it. That way the colors won’t bleed into each
other. Once you’ve got your cookie base coats on,
you can decorate them to look like any Emoji face that you’d like! Like this one… Haaaaaa! Hehehe! Deal with it! EEEEEEEE! There’s so many options, you can make so
many different Emoji faces, so have fun with it, whatever ones you like… Make
‘em! Now we’re gonna decorate the little poo!
He’s so cute! Turned out perfect! And now that the brown has set, you’re just
gonna take your white cookie icing, We’re gonna draw on his 2 little eyeballs,
then he has a little smile, he’s a happy little thing! You’re gonna let the white set for just
a couple minutes, then take your black icing, and make little eyeballs. Ta-da!!! Here are the Emoji sugar cookies that we made! Thanks you guys for suggesting them, these
were so much fun to make and perfect timing for the new Emojis! I can’t wait!
I’m pretty excited! I would suggest these cookies, they’re easy
mode, for anyone if you wanted to give a gift to a friend or a birthday present,
because they’re so cute! If you’re like me, sometimes when I’m texting my
friends sometimes I use Emojis more than words! I’ll be posting lots of pictures of these
little cookies on my Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And if you guys make these, please send me
pictures, because I love seeing your baking creations, I get a big
kick out of them, it just makes my day! I love to re-blog and re-post. Alright, thanks again you guys! Bye-bye! Nee-neep-new-new-new-neep! Double Rainbow! All the way across the kitchen!
