  • Bake cooking and allow them to cool completely.
  • Roll out brown fondant and use a circle cutter to cut out a piece.
  • Brush a little corn syrup on the round sugar cookie and stick the brown fondant piece here.
  • Roll out red fondant and use a circle cutter to cut out a piece.Cut this circular pice in half, using a sharp knife.Trim these semi- circles a little more, using your knife. Brush some water near the top of the cookie and stick the red semi-circle here.
  • Roll out thin ropes, using red fondant.Fold those ropes into little loops and also roll out a tiny red ball. Each pirate cookie will need 2 of these loops and 1 very small red ball. Use water to stick those loops on the left side of the red semi-circle. Press the tiny red ball in the center of those loops.
  • Roll out little yellow fondant balls and press them on the hat.
  • Roll out two small balls of brown fondant and stick them on either sides of the cookie.
  • Use the back of your paintbrush to indent each ear.
  • Cut out a thin strip of black fondant and stick it along the right side of your cookie. Cut off excess with a knife.
  • Roll out a small ball of black fondant and press it along the black strip.
  • Roll out a small ball of brown fondant and stick it in the center for the nose.
  • Use a black edible marker to draw the eye and mouth and you are done.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Store in a covered cardboard box for up to 1 week away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat. This is the best way to store decorated cookies.
