Its A Girl – Puzzle Cookies

Mr 2 has just become a big brother! To help him get involved in welcoming his little sister home, I decided that I would make him a gift of an edible puzzle, announcing the arrival of his sweet baby sister 💕

It turns out that Mr 2 currently likes the tv show “Hey Duggee”. I drew inspiration from the character sets and came up with the cookies you will see below!

Here’s #howididit:

1) I made a sugar cookie dough:

  • Cream 200g of softened butter with 200g of caster sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add to the mixture 1 beaten egg and mix well.
  • Add a tsp of vanilla
  • Add in 400g of sifted plain flour, and mix to form a cookie dough.
  • Allow the dough to rest, and heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Once rested, roll out the dough and cut into required shapes.
  • Place the cut cookie dough onto lined baking sheets and then bake until golden brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool, and then package as required.

2) Once chilled, I rolled out the dough and placed the puzzle template onto the dough.

3) I cut the dough to the size of the template.

4) Then I cut the individual puzzle pieces and labeled them.

5) Using each puzzle piece, I cut the dough to make the puzzle

6) Once cut, I placed the pieces onto a baking tray and baked them till golden brown.


7) I repeated steps 3,4 and 5 with fondant while the cookies were cooling.

8) Once cooled, I stuck the fondant pieces onto their matching cookie pieces using edible glue.

9) I then smoothed the fondant with a smoother and let it dry.


10) Once the fondant was dry, I painted the cookies with food colouring mixed with a couple of drops of lemon juice, and added some fondant decorations.

11) I added some sparkle in true Nazzy Baker fashion, and Voila!!! The puzzle was done!
I’m yet to see Mr 2’s reaction, by I have my fingers crossed that he likes his gift. 😬

You can make puzzle cookies for a variety of gifts… follow me to see what other uses I have for this cool puzzle template 💕
