Hot Dog Cookies

These cookies are just as cute at a BBQ as they are as an April Fool’s treat.

Hot Dog Cookies


1 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
Red and green food coloring
3 Tbs flaked coconut
Yellow decorator’s frosting


1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.

2. Beat in flour and vanilla.

3. Remove one cup dough; add red food coloring and knead until well combined.

4. Cover and refrigerate remaining dough for 1 hour.

5. For hot dogs, divide red dough into 16 portions. Shape into 2-1/2 inch logs and round the ends. Set aside.

6. Divide plain dough into 16 portions. Shape into 3 inch logs; make a very deep lengthwise groove in each. Smooth edges to form buns. Place 3 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place hot dogs in buns.

7. Bake at 350℉ for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool.

8. Meanwhile, for pickle relish, combine coconut and green food coloring in a resealable plastic bag. Shake well. Sprinkle around hotdogs.

9. For mustard, pipe a stripe of yellow frosting down the center of each.
