Someday Legos will rule the world. And I’ll be ready, man. I’ll be ready.
(My heartfelt thanks to Bridget at Bake@350 for the cookie recipe and Amanda at i am baker for the frosting recipe. You guys are awesome!)
Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside. Cream butter and sugar together, scraping bowl frequently.
Add egg and extracts to the bowl and combine.
Gradually add flour mixture and combine. Dough will be crumbly—knead it together with your hands when you remove from the mixing bowl.
Roll out 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface and cut into 2″x4″ brick shapes. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze 5 minutes.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 350ºF.
If the cookies spread a bit while baking, trim up the shapes with a sharp knife while they’re still warm. Let cool completely.
Using Amanda’s Amazing Frosting recipe (found here on TK) mix the powdered sugar, corn syrup and milk, going easy on the milk. Add food coloring for desired color. Make a thick consistency to outline the cookies, then when you’re ready to fill in or “flood,” dilute the remaining frosting with a bit more milk.
Top the cookies with 8 matching M&Ms to simulate the Lego studs.
Serve them to your Lego-loving offspring and be a hero.
(These 2 recipes—cookies and frosting—will make 14 2″x4″ Lego Brick cookies.)
