To make these delicious cookies, you will need to get yourself unsalted butter, granulated sugar, egg, vanilla extra, flour, salt, yellow candy discs, red candy discs, honey or corn syrup, and a ready-made rolled green fondant.
With all these ingredients in place, you are ready to prepare your delicious Lego cookies. You need to start with the mixing of butter and sugar together in a stand
mixer that comes with paddle attachment until they incorporate into one. Be careful not to over-mix it at this stage or else there is a chance your cookies might spread during baking. Once you are done with mixing, you need to add your egg and vanilla extract. Ensure you mix at low speed at this stage, you have to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed during mixing.
Add it to your butter and egg mixture, continue with mixing at low speed until a dough is formed. It is possible your mixture does not come together, you don’t need to panic, this is what your cold water is for, add cold water until the dough clumps. Turn your dough onto a sheet of wax paper and wrap it tightly onto the cookies sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1hr. Cut it out to make a crisp shape, you must not stretch the cutout shape to prevent them from distorting after baking, refrigerate your cut out for 30 minutes to maintain crisp shape during baking. Preheat your oven, bake the cookies for about 12 to 15 minutes. You need to allow the baking sheet to cool before transferring it to a wire rack.
You are almost done with the process; the next important step is to make your Lego shapes. You will make your Lego shape by melting each color of candy discs and placing them into the Lego men molds. You will also need to refrigerate the candy to make it firm and push the set pieces out from the bottom. Before decoration, you need to allow the pieces to cool down to room temperature.
