PREPARE COOKIE DOUGH
Whip up a batch of cookie dough to get started. Get the recipe.
Add a few drops of brown food coloring, or a few teaspoons of cacao powder, one spoon at a time until the desired color is achieved. Cover cookie dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
On a very lightly floured surface, roll the cookie dough with a rolling pin until it is 1/4 inches thick. Create a paper template by tracing Pusheen’s outline onto a piece of paper and cut out the shape. Now using a knife, trace the paper template on the cookie dough.
PREPARE TO BAKE
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and place cookies 2-inches apart on cookie sheet. Preheat oven and bake at 400°F for 4-6 minutes. Place cookies on wire racks to cool completely before icing.
Mix the ingredients for your icing in a small bowl until it starts to look smooth and glossy. Get the recipe.
Divide icing into 4 bowls and add red, green, white and brown food coloring to each bowl separately. Add icing into a piping bag (or plastic bag with a tiny hole) and start piping onto the cookies using a toothpick to remove any bubbles and to smooth out the edges.
ADD FINISHING TOUCHES
Add the second layer of icing including designs on the sweaters and the finishing touches to Pusheen. Allow icing to set for 12-24 hours before serving. Enjoy!
