  • 1 (16.5 oz) roll Pillsbury® Sugar Cookie dough
  • 32 mini chocolate chips
  • Lemon Frosting
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • Yellow and orange (or red) food coloring, until you reach a yellow color
  • Prepare cookies according to directions listed on package. Allow to cool completely.
  • For the frosting:
  • In a mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment), blend togther butter and 1 cup powdered sugar. Mix in milk and vanilla extract. Then add remaining 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and blend in enough cream to reach a desired consistency. Scoop out about 1/4 cup of the frosting and place in a separate bowl and tint orange (with orange food coloring or red and yellow food coloring). Tint remaining frosting in mixing bowl yellow.
  • To decorate cookies:
  • Frost a round of yellow over each cookie, leaving a small rim along edge uncovered. Add two chocolate chips for eyes, then using a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 3 tip, pipe beaks and feet on each cookie. In a separate piping bag fitted with a Wilton 3 tip, add remaining yellow frosting and pipe two wings on each cookie. Store cookies in a single layer in an airtight container.
