Other supplies:


  1. Beat the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth.
  2. Add the sugar and continue beating until thoroughly combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract and repeat.
  3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the flour one cup at a time, mixing between each new addition.
  4. The dough should be firm, easily peels away from the bowl and no longer sticky.
  5. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  6. Once the dough is chilled, knead it on a lightly floured surface until malleable.
  7. Roll the dough out to 1/4″ thick. Cut out with lip cookie cutter.
  8. Bake the dough at 350F for 10-11 minutes or until no longer shiny on top.
  9. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the meringue powder/powdered egg whites and lukewarm water.
  10. Use a whip attachment to whip the mixture on high until frothy. Scrap down the sides as you go to make sure there’s no residual powder.
  11. Sift the powdered sugar and add it to bowl. Continue whipping the icing, this time on medium speed. Stop the machine every 2-3 minutes to spray and scrape down the sides.
  12. If you’re adding additional flavoring to your royal icing, you can add it during one of the stops to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  13. Whip the royal icing until you’ve reached a 20-second consistency.
  14. Divide the icing by the number of colors you want the lips to be and tint.
  15. Pour the icing into piping bags and pipe directly onto the cookies. Use a toothpick to gently swirl the icing into any bare patches.
  16. Allow the icing to dry completely (at least 8 hours or overnight).
  17. Use a black food coloring marker to outline the lips and add details.
  18. Use white food coloring and colors similar to the colors of the lips to contour and highlight the lips.
  19. To attach the lollipop sticks, dip the sticks into the remaining royal icing and gently press them onto the backs of the cookies.
