The things you’ll need

Ingredients
  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • Black candy pearls
  • Black licorice gumdrops
Equipment
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Rubber spatula
  • Baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Rolling pin
  • Pastry brush
  • Rounded rectangle cookie cutter
  • Red, blue, black, grey royal icing in decorating bags fitted with #2 tips

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts and mix until well combined.
  5. On low speed, beat in the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. Shape the dough into 2 disks about 1 inch thick. Wrap the disks in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour up to overnight.
  7. Roll dough out on floured surface to ¼ inch thick. Use a rounded rectangle cookie cutter to cut out cookies and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Freeze cookies for 10 minutes.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes, rotating during baking.
  10. Remove cookies from oven and cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Time to decorate!

  1. Use black royal icing to pipe the outline of a rectangle in the middle of each cookie. Pipe a smaller rectangle outline inside of the first.
  2. Pipe a blue outline on the left side of each cookie and a red outline on the right.
  3. Allow the outlines to dry and then fill in the screen with black and grey royal icing.
  4. Cut 24 gumdrops in half.
  5. Fill in the blue outline with blue royal icing and then quickly place the rounded gumdrop half and two pearls into the icing. Do the same for the red side.
  6. Use black royal icing to add fine details. Repeat decorating steps for the rest of the cookies.
  7. TaDa! These Nintendo Switch Cookies give you the perfect excuse to play with your food!
