It’s been a pretty busy past couple of months with the Cookie Class Book Tour, out of state classes, tv segments, book signings and The Big Cookie Give. I’ve been incredibly selective with any free time I’ve had, sparing any down time to spend with my family. I’m a self proclaimed homebody, so given the chance, I’d pick a night in any day over a big event out. This week we happened to have a rare night of no work, no sports or homework; perfect for a cozy movie night in.
I’ve been wanting to see Abominable since I had read about it’s cute, positive storyline. Positivity goes a long way! Brought to you from the same creators of How to Train Your Dragon, a movie my kids loved, I knew it would be a good one. The storyline is about a Yeti named Everest that a few teenage friends find, then their journey of reuniting the magical creature with its family. The movie is now available on Blu-ray and DVD featuring 2 original shorts, deleted scenes, and more!
To get the kids in the movie night spirit, I popped fresh popcorn and made them some Abominable inspired treats. With just a simple circle sugar cookie, I was able to recreate Everest into buttercream!
Abominable Sugar Cookies
You will need:
1 batch Sugar Cookie Dough (HERE)
Circle shaped cookie cutter
5 disposable decorating bags
4 Wilton #3 decorating tipss
1 Wilton #233 decorating tip
1 Batch Buttercream icing (HERE) colored as follows (1/2 cup black, 1 cup blue, remaining white)
White jimmies sprinkles
- Bake cookies as instructed here. Once cooled, make buttercream icing here. Fit three pastry bags with #3 decorating tips and fill one with white icing and one with gray icing, one with black icing and one with blue icing. Fit one pastry bag with #233 decorating tip and fill with white icing.
- Using the gray icing, draw a half circle inside the cookie and use a back and forth motion to fill in the space.
3. Using the black, white and blue icing bags with #3 tips and draw eyes and mouth onto cookie following the photo below.
4. Using the white icing bag fitted with the #233 tip and holding the bag vertically, squeeze icing bag to create “fur” all around the face of Everest. Continue to pipe fur around face until fully filled in.
The cookies were a hit with the kids! These cookie are great for Abominable movie nights, birthday parties or any occasion to make little faces smile. The cookies last about 3 days and also freeze like a dream, so you can make a few extra to give to school friends or neighbors.
Ally and Hudson loved our mid-week movie night and a dinner made of sugar and junk food. If you’re in need of a cozy holiday night in, I encourage you to indulge in a movie night at home with Abominable!
Abominable is available on Digital Dec 3, and Blu-ray & DVD now!
Pin this idea for later!
