Hello Kitty Cookies

February 8, 2014 /
hello kitty cookies

We are back with more baking! This time Mandy and I baked some cute hello kitty cookies. Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, this Hello Kitty Cookie is perfect to be one of the Valentine Cookies to bake for. Not only that the cookies are cute, they actually taste very good too. My kids love them so much.

Not forgetting to make some Sweet Heart Sugar Cubes for Valentine’s Day. This duo will make a perfect tea time or coffee time for all darling occasions to celebrate.

We baked them with 2 types of Hello Kitty cookie cutters; a cutter with a facial stamping set and the other one is over-the-rim coffee cup cookie cutter.

The cookies are pretty easy and quick to bake and you can use other shapes of cookie cutters too. I put a link on the recipe section below where you can buy the Hello Kitty cookie cutters with facial stamping set from Amazon. However, besides Hellow Kitty, you can use another equivalent cookie cutter of your choice that you can find from your local shop.

I especially amazed by the cuteness of the cookie hanging over the rim of the coffee cup. Though we used a special cookie cutter that came with a notch design, you can DIY yours too. If you can’t find one that has a notch in it, you may simply cut the notch from the cookie dough with a knife.

Hi, the cookies taste great. Thanks for sharing the receipe. Now, I would like to add on the cookies, ribbon, eyes and nose. May I ask how are the decorative sugar heart and sugar beads attached to the cookies. Are they bakable with the cookies ? Will they melt during the process ?

We placed the sugar hearts and beads before baking the cookies. They did melt a little but still hold their shapes. If you would like to attach them after the bake. you may use the edible glue like: royal icing, gum paste/water mixture, or, melted chocolate.

Hi Joanne! Thanks for sharing this super-cute cookie recipe. Although I can find the pink with facial stamp, I can't seem to find the hanging one. Where did you get the hanging hello kitty cookie cutter? Is it possible to purchase them online?

Hi Una, We bought the "over the rim coffee cup cookie cutter" from a local shop and I also can't find it from any online shop that I know. Anyway, you do not really need the special cookie cutter to make this "over the rim" cookies, you can cut the notch out from the cookie dough after you have had them cut out from your hello kitty cookie cutter.

Hi I just tried baking your cookies. The milled cereal, is it we hv to crush cornflakes till powdery form? Also can we substitute it with others (eg cereal or oatmeal)? coz My cornflakes was not crushed properly, somehow affects the texture tho still melt in the mouth (abit like German cookies but with added fragrance from the cereal).

Hi Janet, We milled the cornflakes until powdery form, coarser mill will give another texture as you have experienced. We haven't really tried it with oatmeal, it should work well except that they will taste differently.
