Cute Piggy Cookies

Janelle is getting Comfy In the Kitchen again! She says "I found this wonderful recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. I decided to make them for my son’s school picnic and the children loved them! Hearing their giggles was worth every step! Now, I am asked to make these little cuties every year."

(I give my children a cookie, a spoon of frosting, and the toppings on the side and let them have fun making their own.)

Make your dough (as directed) and scoop into Tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet

Bake @ 375 for 10-12 mins or until edges are lightly browned

Cool on racks

Start doing your "prep work" by cutting strawberry wafers into quarters then cutting them horizontally (these will be be the piggy ears)

Slice marshmallow in half

Use the "sticky" side of the marshmallow to place butterscotch chips- I did not poke holes as directed, I simply pushed them in- (This is the piggy snout)

Make your frosting as directed using powdered sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and red food coloring

Mix Well

Frost cooled cookies

Add the snout

then the mini-choc chips (eyes) and the strawberry wafers (ears)


1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
6 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 to 4 drops red food coloring
Pink sugar wafer cookies
36 large marshmallows, halved
Butterscotch chips and miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and food coloring. Frost cookies.

Cut sugar wafers into triangles; place two on each cookie for ears. With a toothpick, poke two holes in each marshmallow half for nostrils; press butterscotch chips into holes. Place noses on cookies; add chocolate chip eyes. Yield: 6 dozen

Walk with the King!
