Eagle Chief Indian Cookie Decorating Instructions

Before you start, you will need –

  • Aunt Chick’s Eagle Chief Indian Cutter (found in our store)
  • Gramma’s Cutters Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
  • Luster Dust NuSilver, Gold & Desert Plum (found in our store)
  • Red Sanding Sugar (found in our store)
  • Artists “fine” brush (found in our store)
  • Royal Red Coloring Gel (found in our store)
  • Small bowls for the corn syrup or egg whites
  • Egg white or corn syrup (w/ water)
  1. Wait for the cookies to have cooled to the touch.
  2. Mix corn syrup, red coloring gel, and a little water to dilute in a small microwavable bowl. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds. This is so that when the corn syrup mixture sets it will harden and not be sticky any longer. If you prefer you can just use an egg white and red coloring gel mixture. 
  3. Paint egg white mixture or corn syrup mixture on every other feather in the headdress as well as 2 of the feathers by the face. Sprinkle with red sanding sugar on the areas where you have painted.
  4. Mix NuSilver Luster Dust with a little vodka (alcohol will dilute) and create a liquid paste. Paint on every other dot in a headdress. Do the same with Gold Luster Dust and paint the remaining dots and feathers as well as the headdress band.
  5. Mix Deep Plum Sanding Sugar with vodka to make a thicker paste and paint on the eye area.
  6. Take a little of the red-tinted corn syrup mixture and paint it on the bottom lip.
