We can’t wait to see the new Peanuts Movie in theaters next month. Peter and I love watching the original Peanuts cartoons with the boys and love that there is a new adventure for us to experience together as a family! Another fun thing to experience together as a family is cookie decorating. These Peanuts Movie cookies are super fun but also really easy to make!
You can start by making sugar cookies from scratch… or just buy a mix. Whatever floats your boat! 🙂 The key is to get nice round cookies, I’d suggest scooping it out with a ice cream scoop and flattening them down a bit before baking.
Peanuts Movie Cookie Ingredients
Favorite cookie mix
Black writing icing
Once the cookies have cooled, it’s time for the Peanuts Movie cookie decorating fun! Start by diving your frosting (store bought or your favorite buttercream recipe) into 5 bowls. Make one bowl each of red, blue, yellow, and pink frosting using your food coloring. Keep one bowl of frosting white.
Charlie Brown Cookies – Make a chevron pattern in the middle of yellow frosted cookies using black writing icing.
Sally Brown – Make black polka dots all over pink frosted cookies.
Linus – Draw black horizontal lines all over red frosted cookies.
Lucy – Make a ruffled collar at the top of blue frosted cookies and then in the middle, draw two lines with a dot at each end.
Snoopy – Make two half ovals on each side for Snoopy’s ears, draw two dots and an oval for eyes and nose. Finish it off with a smile for snoopy
How cute are these? And easy enough to let the kids help decorate! That’s my favorite kind of treat, fun to make and yummy to eat!
