donut cookies?

Skipping Stones Donut Cookies

Yes, donut cookies. Aren’t they the cutest thing? I saw the idea on The Decorated Cookie. Way clever. And because I cannot eat donuts, this is a great solution! Well, maybe. Not perfect, but cute! (I cannot eat donuts ever since my gall bladder was removed right after the birth of the little man. Ugh. Sorry for the TMI.)

Skipping Stones Donut Cookies Frosting

Now, The Decorated Cookie went all out and baked her own dough and made her own frosting. Normally I am all about that. But with as crazy as life has been, it was time to cheat! :) I used pre-made sugar cookie dough, you know, the already cut into squares kind. (yes, blushing a little bit) Once they were baked, I used a frosting tip to cut the hole in the center. And I found pre-made “royal icing” at Target. Warm it up and it pours out of a spout.

Add a few sprinkles while the icing is still warm. It takes about an hour to set up and then you can put the cookies in bags.

I want to thank Heather and the whole design team at Skipping Stones Design for letting me join in all their fun this month!

thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Skipping Stones Design-Birthday Donuts), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Ink (Palette), Copics, Spellbinders (Classic Scalloped Borderabilities Petite)

These look good and you did such a nice job.
Ya know if you mix the peanut butter and the chocolate chip ready made cookie dough it is the best little quick, yummy cookie. LOL I can't tell you how I know this;) but I do.
Have a great weekend girl

It's sometimes dangerous to visit your blog, simply because you never know what temptations await. These co-donuts look absolutely yummy! I've been an admirer of your work for a long time time and so I've left you an award on my blog to let you and others know what a great talent and inspiration you are. Never stop, girlie!
