Who hasn’t seen Toy Story 4 and fallen in love with Forky? He’s the newest character to join the group and set off on a road trip of a lifetime with Buzz, Woody, and the gang. I know Peyton and I were instantly captivated with Forky. He’s a loveable character that the viewers instantly fell in love with. So to celebrate the release of Toy Story 4 to Blu-ray, 4k and DVD we are going to show you how to make these super easy and quick Forky Cookies.
Many of you know I have a full-time job, raise Peyton by myself and run this site. So somedays I’m extremely pressed for time. Today is one of those days. So we are taking a few shortcuts! Yes, I could show you how to make a sugar cookie dough from scratch or how to make your own royal icing but let’s be honest, sometimes us mommas just need to make something amazing for our kids but we don’t have hours to do it. If that you, then this recipe is right up your ally.
You will need the following to make these Forky cookies at home –
1 roll of Sugar Cookie Dough
1 container of Royal Icing (you can get this from your grocery store bakery just ask them. )
Large Sugar Eyes
Small Sugar Eyes
Egg Shaped Cookie Cutter
Ziplock bag or Pastry bag
This recipe is done in steps so be sure to have about 2 hours so you can do this. There is a fair amount of downtime that you can be doing other things as well, you know like folding that laundry that is piling up on the couch.
First, you are going to take a little flour and sprinkle it on the counter. This will help the sugar cookie dough from sticking to your counters. Do the same to the rolling pin. Now roll that sugar cookie dough out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.
Take the egg-shaped cookie cutter and cut out as many egg shapes as you can.
Use your knife to cut out triangles at the top of the egg turning this cookie into a spork shape.
Next, bake according to the sugar cookie dough packages instructions.
Once the cookies are baked let them cool completely. If you try to use royal icing on warm cookies the icing will melt and slide off the cookie.
After the cookies have cooled it’s time to do the first layer of frosting. Place the royal icing into a pastry bag or ziplock bag. Snip the end off and start frosting the whole cookie with the white royal icing. When you are finished with the icing set the cookie aside, the royal icing needs to set up before we move on. Depending on how thick your icing is this could take 10 minutes to an hour. I let mine sit about 45 minutes before I moved on to the next step.
Now it’s time to give Forky a face!
Take one large eye and place a little dab of royal icing on the back and attach to Forky’s face. Repeat with the smaller eye.
Next, take your red frosting and place Forky’s eyebrows above his eyes.
Then take the blue frosting and give Forky a mouth.
You’re done! You now have Forky cookies that are sure to impress!
