Funny Face Basketball Cookies Made (Royal Icing)

The last on our cookie theme this week is the basketball cookies I made for Cole's team. They had a great season only loosing 2 games and had some great teamwork. They had one game they came from so behind that everyone was giving up but they didn't and won the game by one point! I wanted to do something fun with cookies since every time I make cupcakes no one eats them. I figured cookies are easy to run around with since no one seems to sit these days. I saw these awesome cartoon basketball faces on Cheerful Momma's and thought I can do something like that. I did just the faces not the hoop but I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

What you need:
Circle Cut Sugar Cookies (I use my fav recipe at the bottom of post)
Royal Icing (I use the recipe in this post here) Orange & Black
Candy Eyes
Piping Bag (for the black royal icing)

I usually do the piping on and the flooding for the center of the cookie to fill it all in. I used the video by Created by Diane on how to dip and not pip on the icing. It went a lot faster and a little messy but great to do when your in a hurry. Before the orange set up I added the candy eyes. I then waited for the orange to harden and took my pipping bag full of black and made the lines of a basketball. I then did different mouths on each one. These turned out so cute I must say!

Sugar Cookie Recipe that is my go to:
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.Cream the margarine and add the sugar gradually. Beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at time, mixing well after each addition.
2.Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt gradually to the creamed mixture, stirring in by hand. Cover and chill dough overnight.
3.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
4.Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and cut into your favorite shapes. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.
5.Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes or until cookie has a golden appearance.
