Ok so I had changed my mind and I decided that I want to open a doughnut shop. But... after looking into the details I realized that I would probably severely hurt myself being around hot frying oil all day. So after that quick revelation I decided to stick with cookies.
I was looking at the Decorated Cookie Blog last week and I saw these cookies on the blog. I liked them so much that i put a bookmark on my browser to save the idea for later. Well today was later. I decided that since I wasn't entirely too busy tonight I should try to make them. The recipe she has on her page calls for granulated sugar, and since I learned that lesson earlier this week I searched online for a sugar cookie recipe that called for regular sugar. I clicked on the first one I found, and it sounded really good so I decided to make it.
I rolled out the cookie dough to about 1/4in thick and I used a plastic cup to cut the outside of the doughnut and to cut the inner circle i used t the cover of my pepper shaker (cleaned of course).
After they were done cooling I used a jar of Betty Crocker Chocolate icing to cover my cookies. First I put a large spoonful into a ziploc bag and piped rings of icing around the inside and out side circles. I then took the rest of the icing and microwaved it for 10 - 15 secs, until it was nice and smooth. I used a spoon to pour the melted icing into the outlines i made above. Once they were nice and smothered I sprinkles them with rainbow sprinkles. For full instrustions on how to make the doughtnut cookies check out the Decorated Cookie Blog.
