To Make The Dough You Will Need..

  • 2 Cups Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 8 Ounces Vegan Butter
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla

In a large bowl, combine flour and baking soda.

In a mixer, mix the vegan butter, maple Syrup, sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Pour the flour mixture in the mixer with the other ingredients and combine.

Divide the dough in two halves . Add 2 drops red, 2 drops yellow, and 1 drop of brown food coloring to one half of the dough and incorporate. This will be what you use for the “hot dogs” and “burgers”. The other half of the dough will stay its natural color for the hot dog buns.

Roll a small ball of the natural colored dough in your hands, then flatten with your palm on a flat surface covered with parchment paper.

Using your finger, press onto the tops of the flattened dough for where your hot dog will be placed.

Roll out a small hot dog with the colored dough and use a knife to slice a design into each side of the hot dog. Place your finished hot dog on top of the bun and gently press.

Place all finished hot dogs in the fridge and chill before baking.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Once dough has chilled, bake in the oven for about 15 min or until they look about done.

Allow to cool before decorating.

How To Make “Mustard & Ketchup”

Mix 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons of plant-based milk and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. Divide into two bowls and add red food coloring to one, and yellow to the other and mix until color is even. Add each colored icing into its own squeeze bottle for decorating.

How To Make The “Relish”

Add shredded coconut, green and yellow food coloring and glitter flakes (optional) to a baggy or bowl and mix. Sprinkle on top of already iced hot dog cookies. Adding the ketchup and mustard prior allows the coconut to stick to the frosting.

Add 1 cup of shredded coconut to a ziplock bag. Add in some green and yellow food coloring until you get a color that resembles relish. I also added in some edible green glitter flakes. When the hot dogs are finished baking and you have added the ketchup and mustard. Sprinkle the green coconut on to the tops of each cookie.

How To Make The “Grilled Burger Patties”

Roll out the dough and use a circle cookie cutter or the top of a wine glass like I did.

Place cut out cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place in the fridge to chill for 10-15 mins.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until cookies look done.

Allow your cookies to cool.

Flip each cookie over. You will be adding the grill marks to the bottom of each cookie. The bottoms of the cookies will become the tops.

Using a black food coloring marker, draw grill mark lines on each cookie.
