Fried Chicken Cookies

Make ‘em for your favorite dude!

via Bake At 350

Maybe you’ll want to make some fried chicken leg cookies for your man for Father’s day.  They’re really simple…let me show you how.

Psst…this is the secret ingredient

Here’s what you’ll need:

With a #3 tip, outline the chicken leg in black. I used a #3 tip because I really wanted the outline to show.

Thin the white & brown/gold icings (reserve a bit for later) with water, a little at a time, until it is the consistency of thick syrup.  Cover with a damp dishtowel and let sit several minutes.

Stir gently with a rubber spatula to pop any large air bubbles that have formed. Transfer to squeeze bottles.

Flood the chicken leg with the thinned icings.  Use a toothpick to guide into corners and edges and to pop and air bubbles.

Let sit overnight.

The next day, mix 1/2 teaspoon meringue powder with 1/2 teaspoon of water.  With a small paintbrush, brush the mixture onto the “meat” part of the chicken.  Sprinkle on crushed cornflakes.  Press lightly to adhere.

Let dry for 15-30 minutes.  Pop into a bucket from KFC…they’ll sell you an empty for only 25 cents!

You know what would be really good with fried chicken cookies?  Mashed potato cupcakes! 😉

{Oh! And speaking of meat on a stick, I’m in LOVE with these corndog cookies from Munchkin Munchies!}
