Butts, Boobs, and Bachelorette Cookies...Oh My!

You know you are growing up when your friends start getting married...

I had seen these fantastic cookies at a bridal party and knew I just had to recreate them.  The cookies were the shapes of boobs and butts, and decorated with colorful icing to look like undergarments.  I finally got my opportunity a few weeks ago when my girlfriends and I went to Vegas for a bachelorette party. I couldn't be more excited!

To start I decided to make my own sugar cookie dough because homemade dough usually keeps its shape better while it bakes.

  • 2 cup soft unsalted butter
  • 3 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbs Butter Extract
  • 7 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
(Hint: The butter extract really creates a great authentic sugar cookie flavor.)

  1. Cream together butter and sugar til light and fluffy
  2. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and butter extract
  3. Add dry ingredients.  Mix til thoroughly combine... but do not over mix
  4. Wrap in plastic. Let sit in refrigerator for at least 3 hours 
  5. When ready to make the cookies roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper.  This reduces having to add flour to the dough and making it dry. 
  6. Dip the cookie cutter in flour before pushing it into the dough. It makes the cutting process easier. (Hint: Let dough sit in fridge for about 10 minutes after you cut out the shapes.  This helps the dough keep its shape during the baking process.) 
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 min.  Let cool completely before you decorate. 

To get the two shapes all you need is a basic heart cookie cutter and a paring knife. A smaller cut at the bottom of the heart gives you boobs, while a larger cut gives you the butt.  See diagram below. (Hint: Cut the triangles off before you bake the shapes!)

For the "undergarments" I used Betty Crocker cookie icing and Cake Mate Cake icing.
They both come in a variety of colors and dry great so that you can stack the cookies on top of each other without ruining them! To embellish my cookies just a bit more I used star shaped sprinkles and colored sugar to look like glitter (not shown).  Have fun and get creative!

These were such a big hit that I might have to make them for more bachlorette parties to come!
