Ingredients

Instructions

  • Follow instructions on making sugar cookie cutout dough. Roll out to about 1/8 inch.
  • Using a sharp knife. freehand cut dough into the shape of a surfboard, about 3-4 inches high and 2 inches wide. Not all ears of corn look the same, so don't obsess over the shape and size. Transfer cut-outs to a cookie sheet. Continue until sheet is full.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 6-7 minutes or until very lightly browned. remove from oven and transfer to a cooking rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Allow sugar cookie cutouts cookies to fully cool before decorating. Slather a good 1/8 inch of vanilla buttercream frosting onto a cookie. It will need to be deep enough to sink and anchor a Reese's Pieces bit. Starting at the top, randomly anchor in Reece's Pieces at an angle (slanted), so they are not directly facing up and create a texture and ridges, much like a real ear of corn. Continue 3/4 of the way. 
  • Using kitchen shears cut 2 smaller cat eye shapes out of a fruit roll-up. Lightly press into the frosting at the bottom to make the husk. You can even fold it over like you are in the middle of removing the husk.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies. Store in a cool, dry place. The fruit-roll-ups tend to get sticky if they are too hot or humid. Enjoy!
