Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang Brown Sugar Cookies

Susanne's friend requested for some Snoopy themed cookies for her kid's birthday. I have chosen 8 different designs!


 It took me 2 days of icing for these. Please refer to this post for cookie and royal icing recipes. I rolled the dough to 5-6mm thickness. Just to share some photos of the process...

Freshly baked! Shapes cut out using homemade templates.

These brown sugar cookies don't look that pretty as a cookie base (unlike regular sugar cookies) but I always have rave reviews for these every time! The secret to its awesome fragrance and flavour is from good vanilla bean paste, golden syrup and brown sugar.

Outlining features with black royal icing. I use charcoal powder to colour the icing.

I have an unorthodox way of icing cookies, which is to add on some fine features like the eyes and nose Before the face is flooded with flesh coloured icing. It makes flooding a little more challenging but with the help of a toothpick to nudge the icing into tight corners, it is manageable. The reason why I do this is because I can make mistakes while tracing/drawing the features onto cookie base with edible marker. If I had added on the features after the face is flooded with flesh coloured icing, there is no room for error. Charlie Brown could have looked like any other bald boy :p. Or worse still, the faces look weird.

Day 1 of icing!

Nearly there!

All 24 cookies! Eyes are tired after this!

All wrapped!

Thank God that these were very well received at the party!

With love,

    1. Hi Neens,
      You can easily find the images from internet. Just copy into word document and resize it until it's a size you are comfortable with. I don't usually send templates to people, especially if it's of trademarked characters. I hope you don't mind. You can find images that you prefer that way too.

    1. Hi Angeline,
      Please send any future queries for orders to lovingcreations33@gmail.com thank you :)
      Unfortunately we only bake trademarked characters like Snoopy for friends and relatives due to licensing issues. Generic themes are ok
