Using the pot of gold cookie cutter, cut out 3 cookies for each finished cookie desired. It is best to use a cookie recipe that doesn’t spread. Next, use a heart, circle or tear shaped cutter to cut the center out of one of the pots. Make sure to cut the edge also. Transfer cookie to baking sheet taking care not to distort shape. If shape does distort, use cookie cutter to make it as close to the original shape as possible. Three cookies will be needed per pot. Bake and cool cookie.
Dip top cookie in gold colored candy coating, add sugar crystals to top edge of cookie. Allowing to dry before assembling pot.
Using candy coating in parchment cone, squeeze candy coating on one side of the cookie that has been cut out with the tear or circle cutter. Attach the center cookie to the back cookie.
Once coating is set, add the sugar crystals. Make sure the hole is large enoug so the sprinkles can fall out of the pot when you give it a shake. If the sprinkles don’t come out correctly, you can carefully trim the hole with a serrated knife. If it breaks, just piece it together and glue it in place.
Using the candy coating in parchment cone, squeeze candy coating on the cookie that is holding the sprinkles. Add the top cookie and paint dust onto it.
Let candy coating set before tipping your pot! To see a video of this cookie creation, visit our Facebook page.
