Judy Hopps Donut Sugar Cookies

So if you haven’t seen Disney’s Zootopia you are missing out on a great movie. Not the best Disney movie but a great one with a heart warming meaning behind it, and saying that I noticed the huge donut that almost crushed the little mouse, but Judy Hopps saves the day and grabs the donut before it crushes her! Awesome right?

So I thought how cool would it be to make the donuts, but instead of donuts, change it to sugar cookies! Now unfortunately I don’t have brown food coloring so I made it blue like the color of uniform! Down below is the recipe for the Cookie then for the Royal Icing.

              9. Cut cookies in to a circle then using a smaller circle cut out centers of the larger circle

              13. After cookies have cooled using a piping bag. Pipe Icing between the large circle and the smaller inner circle.

  1. Hey, Jessica! Thanks for sharing your fun and creative idea…and cooking! I’m impressed because my mind doesn’t work this way at all. I would never think of it in the first place, and if I did, I would then think: “nah, that would be too much work!” So kuddos for you for imagining the recipe, then creating the cookies, then sharing them with others! 🙂 Happy baking!

    1. Hey Anna! Thanks for reading! The cookies were actually very simple to make and decorate ! Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!

      1. Sure thing! And not surprising to hear…fancy cooking just scares me away before I stop to think about whether it just LOOKS fancy, or is actually complicated and involved. 😉 Ah, me…
