All of us have a hero in our lives, mine just happens to be 4 1/2 ft tall with a weakness for sugar cookies. Tot has taught me so many things in the last year and with his birthday coming up it gives me a lot to reflect on. We just had his actual party a few days ago with all his friends and looking at the adorable group of misfits I kept imagining miniature superheroes. Which one would they be? I thought Tot would make a wonderful Captain America as I always believed his superpower was not the strength in his body, but the dedication of his heart and determination of his will. That’s my little guy.
With Captain America the Winter Soldier having released a few weeks ago, I wanted to make some cookies to celebrate! Tot and I are going to watch it with our cookies on his birthday, it’s a surprise!
I picked up all the ingredients at Walmart while we were out shopping before his party. Mostly everything you need (aside from Eggs & Butter) you can find in the bakery and candy aisles. Our baking aisle is underneath the giant Grocery sign at our Walmart.
M&M’s are everywhere in the store right now. I found these giant bags in the front, beside the candy aisle, IN the candy aisle and of course in the Halloween section! I grabbed the big bag, I use M&M’s a lot in seasonal baking. They’re great for decorations!
You can also pick up Captain America the Winter Soldier at Walmart. Make sure you grab a coupon before you head to the store! You can get $5 OFF the Blu-ray/DVD by heading over to #HeroesEatMMs and printing yours out.
Once I got home I went through the process of separating out the red and blue M&M’s from the rest. It works out great for me since I’ll be using the fall colors (orange, brown) for an upcoming Halloween treat!
Then it was time to make those yummy easy Captain America sugar cookies! See the recipe below and print out to use for your heroes’ treats! NOTE: The sugar cookie dough must stay in the fridge at least 2 hours before cutting shapes. Make sure to add this time into your schedule.
[yumprint-recipe id=’12’]You can see a little video I made on Instagram where I go through the steps in making the cookies. Just remember that it does take longer than 15 seconds!
I used Captain America’s shield and breastplate design for my cookies. The difficult part of the star I had used a few toothpicks to create. It would be a lot easier to just grab some fondant in the baking or wedding aisles at Walmart, honestly. I recommend it if you are making a lot of them.
I hope your superheroes love these treats just as much as mine. I may not have the ability to see into the future, but I do know how to make a great cookie!
