Anna and Elsa Cookies



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Gingerbread cookie cutter
  • Pastry bag and tip
  • ICING:
  • 2 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 1/4 cup water (plus more for thinning)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Yellow, blue, purple, brown, black, and pink gel food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

  2. Cream butter and sugar by mixing together.

  3. Whisk eggs in a separate small bowl until yolk and whites are combined.

  4. Add in beaten eggs, vanilla, and milk into butter and sugar mixture, beating together.

  5. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder and flour. Then add it into your wet cookie mix and combine together with a rubber spatula.

  6. On a floured surface, roll out cookie dough to about 1/4” thick.

  7. Use your gingerbread cookie cutter to cut out the shapes, and bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes.

  8. Once fully cooled, make the royal icing.

  9. In a mixer, whisk together meringue powder and water until foam starts forming. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes for the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more water (1 teaspoon at a time).

  10. Separate into bowls and add food coloring. Thin the icing with water, until it has reached the desired consistency.

  11. Add to piping bag. Decorate the larger areas, then Anna and Elsa’s hair and facial features.
