Whether it's the first day of school or you're looking for a cute teacher gift for Christmas or Teacher Appreciation, this blackboard cookie recipe is perfect! Made with sugar cookies, black and white fondant, and buttercream frosting, they're easy to make and look just like a chalk board with a piece of chalk.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven according to sugar cookie recipe’s directions.
Prepare sugar cookies according to recipe and use a 3-inch circular cookie cutter to cut out one dozen circles. Place each cookie on lined baking sheet and bake according to recipe’s directions. Allow for the cookies to cool completely before decorating.
Roll out black fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Using the same circular cookie cutter, cut out one dozen fondant circles. Press one on each cookie.
Divide white fondant into 12 spheres, about 1/3 of an inch in size. Roll out the white fondant spheres into cylinders, about one inch long. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together butter, icing sugar and milk with an electric mixer. Start on slow speed and increase to high.
Once ingredients are well-combined, scoop buttercream into a piping bag with a round icing tip. Add some frosting on each white cylinder and place one on every cookie – these will act as the “chalk.” On each cookie, frost the letters “a b c.” Serve and enjoy!
