Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp vegetable/canola oil
  • Red white, and blue candy melts (I used Wilton brand)

Instructions

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Spray a donut pan with cooking spray, use a paper towel to lightly spread/remove excess spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix just until combined.
  3. Transfer the batter to a large piping bag or use a ziploc bag with one corner cut off. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each donut hole about 2/3 full. Tap the donut pan against the counter to release any air bubbles.
  4. Bake the donuts for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the donuts sit in the pan for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack. Allow the donuts to cool completely before moving on.
  5. Melt 1/3 bag of the while candy melts. They can be microwaved or you can melt them on the stove top, whatever your preference. If microwaving, place each color (about 1/3 of the bain a microwave safe bowl and melt one color at a time. I like to start with 1 minute at 60% power, then stir and another minute at 60% power and stir again. Allow the candy melts to cool for about 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer the melted white candy into shallow bowl that will easily allow you to dip the donuts into. Dip each donut, allowing the excess to fall off. Place the donuts on a cooling rack and allow them to harden.
  7. Melt the blue candy melts (about 1/3 to 1/4 of the baand allow to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer into a small squeeze bottle and draw the blue corners onto the donuts. Use a toothpick to help spread out the candy. Allow the blue corner to harden.
  8. Melt the red candy melts (about 1/3 to 1/4 of the baand allow to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer into a small squeeze bottle and draw the red stripes onto the donuts.
  9. Once the blue corner is dry, transfer a small amount of white candy melts into another squeeze bottle and add the white polka dots to the blue corner. Allow each layer to harden before storing in an airtight container.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened 226g
  • 3/4 cups sugar 150g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 295g
  • Marble Icing Glaze
  • 3 cups powdered sugar sifted 415g
  • 3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 3-4 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond (or other preferreextract optional
  • gel food coloring I used "red red" and "electric blue"
  • silver star sprinkles There's an Amazon link for these just below the recipe though I was able to find them cheaper at my local cake shop!
  • luster dust/disco dust Optional there is also an Amazon link for this below the recipe

Instructions

  1. Instructions
  2. Cookies
  3. Preheat oven to 350F.
  4. In KitchenAid mixer or with electric hand-mixer beat your butter until well-creamed.
  5. Add sugar to the mixing bowl and beat with the butter until well combined (about 30 seconds).
  6. Stir in vanilla extract and salt, stirring until well-combined, and scrape down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula to ensure ingredients are well-incorporated.
  7. Add egg yolk and beat until combined
  8. With mixer on medium-low speed, gradually add flour until well-incorporated (you will definitely need to scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl several times for this, as the mixture is fairly dry and crumbs tend to settle at the bottom of the bowl).
  9. Transfer dough to clean surface and use your hands to form it into a cohesive ball.
  10. Flatten into a disk (about 1" thick), cover with clear wrap, and chill for 15 minutes.
  11. Once dough has chilled, transfer it to a clean, lightly floured surface and use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out to about 1/4" thickness.
  12. Lightly flour your cookie cutters and cut out your shapes, transferring them to ungreased cookie sheet.
  13. Once you have cut out all of the shapes that you can, be sure to re-combine the scraps and roll out and cut out again to get the maximum number of cookies from your dough.
  14. Bake on 350F for 10-12 minutes (longer if you are using larger cookie cutteand allow cookies to cool completely before dipping in chocolate.
  15. Marble Icing Glaze
  16. In a large bowl, combine sifted powdered sugar, 3 Tbsp milk, and light corn syrup. Whisk until smooth. If mixture is too dry, add additional milk, one teaspoon at a time until mixture can be stirred.
  17. Stir in extracts.
  18. Glaze should be thick, to test that it is the right consistency drop a few droplets on top of a test cookie. If the glaze remains stiff, it needs to be thinned. If it runs off the cookie, it is too thin and needs more powdered sugar. If it settles down smoothly, it is just right.
  19. Divide glaze into four small bowls.
  20. Working with one bowl at a time, use a toothpick (a different toothpick for each coloand dip it into the food coloring bottle and then into the glaze. You want a small dot of food coloring (see video).
  21. Drag a toothpick through the food coloring and glaze until it is prettily swirled/marbled.
  22. Holding your cookie at the base, dip the surface of each cookie into the glaze (take a look at your first cookie -- are you satisfied with the pattern? Adjust whorls with additional food coloring as needed).
  23. Once the first bowl runs out or the colors become too muddled together from dipping, move onto your next bowl of food coloring (you will probably need to stir first before adding your coloring, as the surface may have begun to harden).
  24. Repeat steps 5-7 until all cookies have been dipped. Allow them to harden at least 30 minutes (may take longefor glaze to set. Enjoy!
  25. Keep uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
