Can I Make "Star-Spangled Cookies"?

Updated: Aug 25


These are fun cookies for July 4th or any day! I saw them on Pinterest from Sugar Spun Run and as I have mentioned before I like her sugar cookie and non-Royal Icing icing recipe for cookie decorating. I have used it multiple times. Some examples are below.


This cookie was a Star-Spangled twist and she has some tips on marbling in the video on her website / Youtube.

Just a couple examples

I didn't have a star cookie cutter, so I just free-hand cut some stars out with a butterknife. They turned out pretty well! :)





Here's what I used:

- Star cookies

- Powdered sugar

- Corn syrup

- Almond milk (didn't have cow milk

- Red Gel Food coloring

- Blue Gel food coloring

- Silver Lustre dust (for 1 of them)

- Silver star sprinkles (for 1 of them)




For the glaze, I made the Easy non-Royal Icing Icing, but with almond milk because I didn't have cow milk (powdered sugar + corn syrup + milk is the usual recipe). I followed her tips about only doing a few swirls of red or blue food coloring in white




You can only dip a few cookies before it starts to get more towards purple rather than separate red and blue. One thing I did find out was that I didn't need to use multiple bowls for marbling the cookies.


Tip: Instead of using multiple bowls for dipping cookies, I had one large main bowl of white icing and one I used for marbling. I just added more white icing to the middle of the dipping bowl and then I added a tiny bit more red and blue food coloring as needed.




I put stars and silver Lustre dust on one of them. I thought the way I was doing it (haha!) that it looked better without the additional silver star Lustre dust and silver star sprinkles.



RESULT: Success.


We are good at this. I think they turned out better than I thought they would. Haha! :) You can see all the 3 colors! The glaze tried a little bit differently than normally. I think because I used almond milk instead of cow milk. It still tasted pretty good.


It's a fun cookie for July 4th or any day! You can use these techniques for other colors of icing or shapes of cookies too. :)


Give it a try! We are good at this!
