HOW TO MAKE WARCRAFT COOKIES – NERDY NUMMIES


Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy
Nummies! I got so many requests to make something Warcraft
themed, the Warcraft movie just came out and I have a lot of friends who play Warcraft
and World of Warcraft. I am a huge fan of Blizzard games and I am
dressed up as a Gnome! Which are my favorite playable characters.
They are very petite, they’re tinkerers and they’ve got a Steampunk style! I feel like if I was a Warcraft character
in real life I would be a Gnome! Today we are gonna be making traditional Warcraft
Horde and Alliance themed cookies! Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 3 cups
of all purpose flour, 2 sticks of butter, 1-1/2 cups of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking
powder, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 eggs. Then you will
also need 4 different colors of royal icing, I’ve dyed them black, blue, yellow
and red. And a circle cookie cutter. Now let’s put it all together! The recipe that we’re using today is an
adaptation from my lemon sugar cookie recipe from the Nerdy Nummies Cookbook. The first
thing that we’re gonna do is we’re gonna combine our dry ingredients into this bowl.
We’re gonna add our flour, salt and baking powder. Then we’re gonna whisk it
together until it’s well combined. Next we’re gonna cream together our butter
and sugar into a big mixing bowl. So I’m gonna put in my butter, add your
sugar, now I’m gonna mix together until our mixture is light and fluffy. I’m
using my Wiz-o-Matic 5000! Or you can use a hand mixer, whatever you
got! It’s light and fluffy, now we’re gonna
add our eggs. We’re gonna add them 1 at a time, add the
egg, mix it up, scrape down, then add your second egg, mix it up and scrape
down again. Then add your vanilla extract and mix it up
1 more time! Our wet ingredients are all mixed up and now
we are gonna pour in all of our dry ingredients. And now we’re gonna
mix it together, but you want to make sure it’s on a low speed, otherwise you’ll
get a big dust cloud! Our cookie dough is mixed and it’s ready
to chill, we’re gonna wrap it up in plastic wrap. Now I’m gonna put this into
the fridge and let it chill for about 2 hours. Our dough has sat in the fridge, it’s chilled,
and now it’s ready to roll out. We’re gonna unwrap our dough…. Yes! We’re gonna take a little bit of flour,
sprinkle it on top of our work surface so that the dough doesn’t stick. And I’m
going to be cutting my dough in 1/2 and rolling it out 1/2 at a time so it’s
a little bit easier to work with! Sprinkle a little flour on top, and on your
rolling pin, and get to rolling! We’re gonna roll it out about 1/4 inch thick. Now we’re gonna cut out our cookies, take
your circle cookie cutter, and cut out as many as you can. Remove your excess dough.
I’m gonna place these on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, this recipe
doesn’t spread very much, it really holds shape, so you can put these cookies
pretty close. Once you’ve got your cookies on the tray,
we are gonna bake them, you’re gonna heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for about
12-14 minutes. While the oven is pre-heating, this part is
totally optional, but I’m gonna pop these cookies in the freezer to help hold
their shape while they bake. While our cookies are baking, we are going
to make some decoration details, These take a long time to set, so if you want
to make these the night before, you can do that, they take anywhere from 8-12
hours. You want to let them sit at room temperature. Here I’ve made 2 templates in photoshop,
1 is a bunch of Horde symbols, and 1 is a bunch of Alliance symbols, I’ll put
a link down below so if you want to use these templates that I’ve made, you can! Or if you’d like to make your own you can
do that as well. I placed the piece of paper down on top of
a cutting board, so I could move it around if I needed to, and then you’re gonna place
a piece of wax paper, right on top. And tape it down! I’m gonna start by piping the Horde symbol
first, and again, I’m using royal icing that I’ve dyed red, I’ve just placed it
into a plastic baggie with a number 2 tip. When you’re piping htese, Just take your time, I like to pipe the outside of the outline first and then fill it in. Then move the icing around with a little
toothpick. Got all of our Horde Designs done, and now
I’m gonna set these off to the side because I don’t want to bump them while
I’m piping the Alliance. That’s the worst thing! When you’ve piped
all your cute designs and you bump ‘em with your elbow…. I’ve done that….. To pipe our alliance symbols, I’m gonna
be using the yellow royal icing, and again, I’m using a number 2 tip. I’m gonna be
tracing and filling in all of the white parts of the design. Once you’re done we’re
gonna let these sit out at room temperature, not in the refrigerator, just at room temperature
for 8-12 hours to completely dry. While our designs are drying we are gonna
ice our cookies. Our cookies are fresh out of the oven, I’ve
given them plenty of time to cool. You don’t want to ice your cookies while
they’re still warm, otherwise the icing will goop off, it will just kind of, like,
melt. You don’t want that! We’re gonna be icing 1/2 of them black,
and 1/2 of them blue. I’m gonna start with the black royal icing,
I put it into a plastic baggie with a number 3 tip. Little bit bigger this time. And we’re gonna pipe an outline, all the
way around the cookie. Now for the blue, we’re gonna do the same
thing, pipe an outline all the way around our cookie. Next we are going to flood
our cookies. Flooding is just when you fill in the cookie.
So I like to make zig-zags, I go back and forth. Then I’m gonna take
a toothpick to just smooth out the icing. Then you’re gonna do this to the rest of
your cookies! Once you’ve iced all of your cookies we’re
gonna let them sit out for about 10-20 minutes to set. Final step, it is time to
assemble our cookies! I’m going to be placing our red Horde designs
on top of our black cookies. And, our Alliance designs on top of our blue
cookies! Over here I’ve got our designs, they have
dried, what I like to do is take a pair of scissors, cut them out, don’t bend them,
and then with 1 of the shapes I’m gonna very carefully, I like to get down here. Get even shorter! Using the edge of the table to gently remove
the design from the wax paper. And I’m gonna be using a sharp cutting knife,
like this, to catch it. Gently pick it up and place it on top of your
cookie. If you don’t want to deal with a sharp cutting knife
you can use a small off-set spatula, You gotta go really fast, you press down your
spatula, and shoot it underneath! It’s real fast, like a ninja! Lift, and transfer! Last detail, I almost forgot, we’re gonna
pipe the Lion’s little nose! Over here I’ve switched to a number 1 tip,
just a little triangle right there, and we’re gonna do this to the rest of our
cookies. Ta-da! Here are the traditional Warcraft Horde and
Alliance themed cookies that we made today! Whether you are for the Horde! Or for the
Alliance! We’ve got some yummy treats! And a big thank
you to you guys for suggesting something Warcraft themed, these were very fun and easy
to make! I’ll be taking lots of pictures of these
cookies and posting them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram! And if you
guys make any themed Warcraft treats, please take a picture and send it to me! I
love seeing your baking creations, I just get a big kick out of it. It makes
my day! And, if you have any other ideas for any other
Nerdy Nummies, please let me know leave me a comment down below and I will do
my best to make it happen. Alright, thanks again, bye-bye!
