Pirate cookies

Have you picked out your costume yet? Are you going to be a princess, superhero, or maybe a pirate? I am going as Dr. Seuss's Thing One in which I like to call myself Wild Thing One. My niece requested some pirate cookies which I happily obliged. These aren't too scary to eat. The kids liked to help decorate which always make it fun.
Pirate Cookies
Sugar Cookies
Red Royal Icing
White Royal Icing
Black Royal Icing

  1. Make a red circle about 1/2 inch from the edge.
  2. Take half of the red icing and add 1/2 tsp of water to thin it out.
  3. Flood the red circle with the thinned out icing. Allow to set for at least one hour.
  4. Once the red icing has set, take the white icing and pipe the shape of a light bulb onto the top 1/3 section of the cookie
  5. Below the light bulb shape, pipe a letter "X" underneath. 
  6. At the edge of each "X", add a little circle.
  7. Take about 1/3 of the white icing and add a little water to think it out. 
  8. Flood the inside of the light bulb shape. Allow to set for at least one hour.
  9. Once the white icing has set, add 3 dots to form the two eyes and nose.
  10. Add a couple of lines for the mouth. 
  11. Add some black icing for decorations and other decorations like an eye patch. Allow to set before serving.
