My daughter and I just love Vampirina. It’s not always easy being the new kid in town, but Vee sure makes it look easy and fun. She shows us that even though we may look different on the outside, we have a lot more in common than we think. Through this show, my daughter is able to learn about friendships and acceptance.
Demi, Vee’s adorable ghost friend, is one of our favorite characters. In honor of their BFF status, I made these unBOOlievably yummy Vee and Demi sugar cookies. Watch out, they might make you go batty!
Catch a new episode of Vampirina on Friday, February 16 at 11 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel. And get excited for more Vampirina stories, since it was just announced that the series has been picked up for a second season!

SUGAR COOKIES: Preheat the oven to 350° F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until combined. Then beat in the egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt.
Slowly, add the flour and mix until dough is formed.
Roll out dough about 1/4″ thick with a rolling pin. Cut out cookies using a pairing knife and the Vampirina and Demi template.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Space out cookies on sheets so they have enough room to rise. Then bake for 6-8 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool completely before decorating with royal icing.
ROYAL ICING: Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a stand mixer).
For stiffer icing (used for outlining), use 1 tablespoon less water. For the thinned (flood) royal icing add an additional teaspoon of water at a time until you reach a good consistency. Separate frosting in bowls to mix in different colors with food coloring. Place in frosting bags, and cut a small hole in the corners.
Before decorating the cookies, use an edible food marker to outline some of Vee and Demi’s features.
Next, decorate them with icing. First start with the main features and allowed them to set for a couple hours. Then add all the details.
After decorating, allow the icing to set overnight.
