The other day I saw on one of my cookie websites how to make the Captain America shield. It was such a great idea to make it for the soon-to-be nine-year old that lives down the street I thought I’d try it.
I used my sugar cookie recipe and made two batches. One batch I made red and the other batch half of it I made blue and left the remainder white. It took almost all afternoon to create the dough. The next morning it was going to be a scorcher so I started baking them around 7:30am just to get it done and over.
It was so easy to slice and bake. They still required the star. I stopped at Joann’s Fabric and picked up a tiny star fondant cutter along with fondant. I really cheated and used store bought icing to glue the fondant onto the cookie. They turned out great with ONE big exception; they fall apart when you eat them. Not so good.
The little nine-year old appreciated them. They really did look cleaver. I may not do these again.
Typically with a huge movie like this coming out there’s all sorts of merchandising. NOPE! I couldn’t find any Captain America anyting for this little guy for his birthday. So a gift car to Target so he could pick out what ever he liked seemed to be the better thing.
