TF2 Soldier Sugar CookiesTeam Fortress 2 soldier sugar cookies with royal icing.

Featuring both the RED and the BLU soldiers. They're equally delicious!


Sugar cookie dough
Small orange M&Ms
Royal icing
Red, blue, and black food coloring

Ingredients for Royal Icing (for a dozen cookies):

2 cups powdered sugar
1 and 1/2 tablespoons meringue powder
Several tablespoons warm water (2-4)

You'll want the sugar cookie dough to be a little chilly when rolling out the dough, it'll help the soldiers keep their shape.

Roll out your cookie dough to a 1/4" thickness. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out the shapes and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown.

A little toasty!

I'll be honest, these cookies are a little overdone. Instead of watching the cookies lovingly, I was mucking around with wrapping presents. So, these are extra crispy sugar cookies.

Allow the cookies to cool.

For the royal icing, mix together the powdered sugar, meringue powder, and two tablespoons of warm water until the mixture is thick and glossy. You want it pretty thick so the icing won't run off the cookie.

Take 1/3 of the royal icing and add the red food coloring. Pour into a sealable plastic bag and snip the tip of the corner off.

Take a cookie and draw the outline of a shirt.

Take another 1/3 of the royal icing and add the blue food coloring. Scoop into another plastic bag and snip the corner off. Draw on the rest of the shirts and fill.

Add black food coloring to the reminding icing. You might need to add a teaspoon of warm water if the icing has thickened at this point. Once the color is fully incorporated, scoop into plastic bag and cut the corner. Outline the pants and fill in.

Repeat for all cookies.

You should still have a good amount of black icing left. Don't throw this away as we'll need this icing for more decorations.

Allow the cookies to sit for a few hours or overnight to set. This is important! Otherwise your colors will bleed into each other at the next step.

The next day, snip a bigger corner off the plastic bag of black royal icing.
