I've loved the Despicable Me franchise...yes, more than a forty-something year-old probably should. Seriously though, the original is one of the sweetest animated movies, isn't it?!? Margo, Edith, and Agnes...and the book about the kittens...and "IT'S SO FLUFFY"...and the recital. ♥ So good.

Decorated Minions cookies need to be part of any watching party or Minions birthday celebration. You could even make them AT your party!

To make Minions cookies, you'll need:


how to make Minions cookies

Thin the yellow icing with water a bit at a time until the icing is the consistency of a thick glue. Run a knife through the icing and the line should disappear in a count of about 15 seconds.

Pour this icing into a piping bag fitted with a #3 tip. Pipe a circle outline on the cookie. Working a few cookies at a time, go back and fill in the outline with the same icing.

Use a toothpick to guide into spaces and edges.

Let the icing set for at least 1 hour.

Fit a piping bag with another #3 tip and fill with black icing. Pipe a line across the top of each cookie. Let the icing set for at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, roll the fondant to 1/8" thick on a surface dusted with cornstarch. Use a small circle cutter for the eyes.

With food coloring pens draw brown or green irises, then add in the pupils in black. Use a #1 or #0 tip to pipe detail onto the eyes with white icing.

Mix the luster dust with vodka until smooth and thick. Paint around the edge of each eyeball to make the silver goggles. The "paint" will dry quickly, so you may need to thin with more vodka occasionally.

Add a little icing onto the back of each eye and place onto the black stripes on each cookie....some with one eye, others with 2.

Pipe a mouth and hair onto the cookies in black with a #1 tip.
