These cookies might look familiar? I also featured this cutie in my cookie decorating book, The Crafted Cookie!

I piped the sprinkles using a tip #1 to have precise placement and a perfect color match, but you can also use actual sprinkles to speed up this design!

Cookie Yield

These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20-24 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.

Prepping the Royal Icing


For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).


These hot dog cookies require a little color mixing. When making each color, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

If you're making a full batch of these hot dog cookies, here is a breakdown of the icing by ounce:

Mustard: Lemon Yellow + Golden Yellow gel (2 oz pipe only)
Bun: Buckeye Brown 10 oz (pipe and flood)
Hot Dog Tulip Red + Buckeye Brown 7 oz (pipe and flood)
Eyes Black Diamond 2 oz (pipe and flood) white 1 oz (flood only)

(if you're looking for tips on making the icing with the full set of mustard, ketchup, grills, and hamburgers - check out The Crafted Cookie)
