HOW TO MAKE DIG DUG COOKIES – NERDY NUMMIES


Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Today we are gonna be doing something a little
bit different, a little bit weird. Because recently I visited the YouTube Space
here in LA and they had a retro arcade machine with one of my old favorite
games. It’s called Dig Dug, and I got so excited
because for those of you who aren’t familiar with the game Dig Dug, it is a retro
arcade game that was made in the 80’s and I was made in the 80’s. I used to play it a lot, and I got so excited,
and I know it’s a retro game, I don’t even know if it’s on like an app
game, if it is let me know, leave me a comment down below. But, today we are gonna be making Dig Dug
Sugar Cookies! Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 3 cups
of regular flour, 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract,
1 egg, 1 cup of butter which is 2 sh-ticks. You’re gonna need 4 food
coloring dyes, we have red, orange, yellow, and this royal blue, a rectangular
cookie cutter, a whisk, a spatu-ler and a rolling pin. Oh and a baking sheet, I almost
forgot! Let’s put it all together! Beep-beep-beep… Pssccchheeewwww! The 1st thing that we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna whisk together our dry ingredients, we have our flour in this big mixing bowl,
and then our baking powder. Put it in ‘dere! whisk it up, and then we’re
just gonna set it aside and we’re gonna put together our wet ingredients. Now we’re gonna combine the wet ingredients
in this stand mixer, if you don’t have a stand mixer, that’s fine you can just
use a large mixing bowl and a hand mixer, that’s fine. So we’re just gonna put in our butter first,
bloop! You’ll want to use this paddle attachment,
not the whisk one, it’s a lot stronger! Bewm! Alright, then we’re gonna mix it up
until it’s nice and creamy. Lock, and loaded. Ready… Dug-dug-dug-dug-dug-dug-dug-dug! Once your butter is creamed together you’re
gonna add your sugar and then mix it up again, until it’s all combined. Now you’re gonna add your egg, and your
vanilla extract. Mix it up again! Peeeeeewwwwwww!!! OK, I’m gonna open this, and you’re just
gonna scrape down the sides with your spatu-ler! Pew-pew-pew! Geez! OK, and now what you’re gonna do is you’re
gonna slowly add your flour mixture, the dry mixture, to the wet mixture while
it’s mixing, but you’re just gonna do it small portions at a time. I’m gonna be using
a 1 cup measurement and just add a cup at a time until it’s all mixed together. Once your dough is done mixing what we’re
gonna do is put down some flour on top of your table or surface and then we’re gonna
roll it our a little bit. To make a log. OK, now we’ve got a log, and now I’m gonna
take a knife and I’m gonna divide my dough into 5 sections. I’m just gonna eyeball it, doesn’t have
to be perfect. There we go. Perfect! I’m just gonna make little balls. Now I’m gonna put these little balls of
dough into different bowls, and we are gonna dye them the different colors
of dirt in the Dig Dug game. Now that we’ve got our cookie dough all
dyed, we are gonna roll each one of them out and layer them to be the different levels
of dirt. I’m 1st gonna start with red, because this
is on the bottom. You’re gonna take the dough and place it
on top of some saran wrap, because we’re gonna wrap them up for the freezer,
and you’re gonna take your rolling pin and roll him out. And when we’re stacking our dough we’re
going to try and make it them tall as the cookie cutter, but if it falls a little short,
that’s fine because it’s an easy fix. But try to get it as tall as your cookie cutter. Next one is gonna be orange-red. We’re gonna
roll this out and then put it on top. And next color is orange. Then yellow. Last but not least, dark blue. They’re so soft they’re falling apart
a little bit, that’s OK. Just gonna squish it together. And, I’m gonna wrap it up tight, and now
you’re gonna put this in the freezer and you’re gonna let it sit there for about
an hour. And then we’re gonna cut slices and it will
be ready to bake. I put my cookie dough on top of a cutting
board and I’ve got my sharp knife, and now I’m just gonna cut… Dee-dee-dee-dee-dee! And make little slices all the way down. Oh gosh, come on Hulk strength! Come on! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Ugh-eeeh-eeeh-eeeh! Ahhhh! Whew! It looks just like the different levels, look
at that! Ahhh it’s so cool! We’ve cut our cookie dough into a bunch
of different slices, and have no fear if they are not as tall as the cookie
cutter. See right here it’s just a little bit short,
so what you can do to modify it, it’s very easy. You just take a little bit
of flour, put it on your rolling pin. Put a little flour on top, and just be very
very gentle with the cookie. And you’re just gonna roll it out a little
bit. Then you’re gonna take your rectangle cookie
cutter, press down, give it a little shake. Then you’re gonna take off the excess
cookie dough. Ooooh! Look at our little Dig Dug cookie! So cute! I’m just gonna take my flipper, and put
it on the bakin’ sheet. Then you’re just gonna do that to all of
your cookies and once you’ve got them all on the baking sheet. You’re gonna heat your
oven to 350 and you’re gonna bake these for about 5 minutes. But
keep your eye on them, because there’s a bunch of different dyes and depending on how
thick your cookie is, as soon as they start to golden, they’re done! After your cookies are done baking, take them
out of the oven and make sure they’ve had plenty of time to cool before
you decorate, if you choose to decorate. If you don’t want to decorate you can just
eat these yummy sugar cookies as is. But I’m gonna be adding some tunnels with
some cookie icing. I just put a number 5 tip here at the end
and I’m gonna be drawing the little tunnels like in the game to decorate. Ta-da! Here are our Dig Dug Sugar Cookies! These were so much fun to make! Look at ‘em,
they look just like the Dig Dug levels! Aeewww! I really love making retro themed treats so
