Hey you guys, it’s Ro. And today on Nerdy Nummies, we are gonna make
Pokeball cookies, and I am really excited, because I got a lot of requests to
do something Pokemon and I got a lot of requests to do something from scratch,
I’ve done it before with the banana cake for Donkey Kong, but, we’re
gonna do it again today! What you’re gonna need today is butter,
and you’re gonna want to make sure it’s unsalted butter, baking soda, salt,
1 egg, red gel food coloring, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, regular sugar,
and flour! The tools that you will need today will be:
2 bowls, I have 1 big mixing bowl, 1 smaller bowl, saran wrap for after we’re
done with the cookie dough, measuring cups, a butter knife, more teaspoons,
tablespoons, I use 2 spatulas, the big boy and the little 1, a whisk, or
you can use a beater, but I’m using a whisk, and 1 big knife for cutting the cookies
once they’ve cooled. Let’s get started! I found my sugar cookie recipe in this cookbook,
but you can use whatever sugar cookie recipe you like. I just happened
to read through it and I was like, yeah I like that! I’m gonna try that
out! You’re gonna take 2-1/2 cups of flour, what
I like to do is take a big scoop, like so, and then that’s when I take the
butter knife, and I chop it, and just push off the rest! So it’s nice and flat. And I’m a messy baker, and that’s OK! 2-1/2 cups, mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm! Mmm-mmm-mmm! I’m changing the recipe just a little bit,
instead of doing 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda, we’re only gonna use a fourth,
it’s recommended. A fourth! 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Alright, and then you’re gonna whisk these
together. It’s really good to do this so they all
get mixed in before you add the sugars. And the butter. And then you just set this off to the side,
and take your big mixing bowl, boom! And you’re gonna add a cup of butter, and
a cup is just gonna be 2, 2 of these sticks. So you put them in the
microwave because you want to add softened butter. So I’m gonna put these
in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Oh, come on little butter! Plop! OK, and 1 more. And the reason you mix them in 2 different
bowls is because, it’s science! Um, well really, well really, it’s you mix
all the light flours together. Salt, baking soda, flour, all that. And then here we’re gonna mix the butter
with the powdered sugar and the sugars and the egg. Kind of all the wet materials,
it makes a really thick, creamy substance, so that when you gradually add
the flour, um, it kind of gradually gets thicker, and you don’t have dust flying. Which is really hard to avoid, especially
with the powdered sugar. This gets… You’ll see, watch, watch what
happens here. This is like a fog machine. Alright, so you’re gonna take 1-1/4 cup of powdered sugar, I’m almost out. Oh man, here’s where it gets, this is just, its… Look at, look at this. This isn’t
even full! I’m gonna add, and then you’re gonna pack it down just to make sure. Whew! This stuff is messy! Here is your sugar, you are going to add 1/4
cup of sugar, and then 2 tablespoons, I don’t know what the math
is on that, I just know that’s how I measure it… It’s, it’s… It works! Just 2 of these. Berp… Berp! And we don’t add the egg yet, you’re gonna
mix this together, and I’m actually going to use a beater. I wasn’t going to,
but now I’m going to. So I’m gonna put these… Now you’re gonna beat until the substance
is really creamy, until it looks like butter. It shouldn’t take very long,
just like a minute. Then you’re gonna add 1 egg, merp! 1 large
egg. 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla ax-tract…. Extract,
I can talk today! And if you over-flow a little bit, that’s
OK! It’s just a little bit more flavoring and we’re not adding any other flavoring like cinnamon,
so, a little bit extra vanilla, that’s OK! And I’m just gonna mix this together a little
bit, not a lot, just a little. And then you’re gonna gradually add the
flour. Put a little flour in, hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm! Then we’re gonna mix that up. That’s mixed,
add more flour. Oh my god! I need1 of those Kitchenaids!
Oh my gosh! Once your dough is ready, all mixed together,
you’re just gonna divide it in 1/2, equally in 1/2. And then we are gonna
dye 1/2 of it red. With the gel food coloring. You just kind of, ber-ber-ber-ber, ber-ber-ber-ber,
bum-bum! And this is the 1 we will dye red! So take your red gel food coloring, and we
are just going to squirt it in. You can use a lot, because if you use a little,
the dough will turn pink. So, use a lot, of red! Just gonna mix it up. Just gonna, gonna, gonna
mix it up! OK, I’ll stop… OH! I can’t joke like
that when I’m baking! Now I’m going to roll this in a ball. Now you’re gonna take saran wrap, and we’re
gonna wrap up the doughs and put them in the refrigerator for about… In our refrigerator
it takes about an hour. You just want the dough to be really firm,
because right now it’s really soft and sticky. And to shape it, you’re gonna
need it to be pretty firm. So, you can go on the computer, play some
Pokemon! You can go watch Gagnam Style…. You can
do whatever you want. Just take up your dough, plop it down, go
like that, wrap it up tight! And put these puppies in the fridge. After you’ve let your dough cool, what I
did is I took it out of the fridge and I rolled it into logs, like so, and it
was really, really easy, I just rolled them, into these shapes, and then I put them
in the freezer for another 1/2 hour to hour, and so they’re just really, really
firm. Oh, but you can still cut them. So what you’re gonna do is put them on a
cutting board, I have these lightweight cutting boards, take a big cutting knife,
and you’re gonna cut them directly straight down the middle. After you cut them in 1/2 you’re gonna take
egg wash, which is just 1 egg white and 2 tablespoons of water, and I found a little
paint brush. But, you can just put it on with a knife,
it’s OK. I’m being fancy with my paintbrush! You’re gonna put the egg wash and paint
them on top of all 4 pieces of dough, so that they’ll stick together. Then you
match ‘em up! Gonna take 1 white, 1 red, and match ‘em
up. They don’t have to be perfect because what
we’re gonna do is wrap these again, put them in the freezer, let them sit together,
let them get really nice and stuck, and then we’re gonna cut slices,
and then use cookie cutters to make them look like Pokeballs! Once your dough has cooled off, had a chance
to stick together in the freezer, you’re gonna again, put it on the board,
I’ll put it like this, like so. And it should be firm, but it shouldn’t
be too hard where you can’t cut it. What you do first, is you first slice, make
your slices, and then you’ll take the cookie cutter, and cut your circles. So it’s a 2 step process. Ta-da! Here they are, ready for the oven. Just remember, heat to 375 and bake for 7,
7 to 9 minutes. Da-dee! Cookies are all done, they’re baked, and
after they come out of the oven give them plenty of time to cool. I put these
in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes, so they’re ready to decorate! All you need to decorate is black frosting,
I put it in one of these fancy bags, but if you don’t have 1 of these you
can just use a ziplock, and cut off the tip. And Smartees! The little candies,
we’re gonna be using the white Smartees for the center of the Pokeball. Yeah, time to decorate! We have most of them done, but if you don’t
like Smartees, another option is little Marshmallows! All you’re gonna do
is take a little marshmallow, cut him in 1/2, with baking scissors, merp-merp! And then stick him right in the middle. I just want to give you guys options in case
you don’t like certain candies. If you can think of any other white little round
candy, use it! Ta-da! Pokeball cookies! Dee-dee! Oh, oh, oh! Don’t fall, don’t fall! They’re so cute! They’re really really
easy, I wanted to do a recipe like this so that it would be something simple that
everyone could do. I hope that you liked it, if you have any
other suggestions for any other Nerdy Nummies, please let me know, leave me
a comment below and I will do my best to make it happen! OK, thanks so much! Bye-bye! Pschooo! Background: Dude, you’re messing
