  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the flour until dough is smooth. Remove 1 cup of dough, then cover and refrigerate remaining dough. Knead the red food coloring into the 1 cup of dough until the color of a hot dog is achieved. Refrigerate all dough for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Divide the red dough into 16 portions. Roll each piece into a 2 1/2 inch long sausage shape. For buns, divide the white dough into 16 portions and shape into 3 inch logs. Slice them almost in half lengthwise. Spread the buns open and place the hot dog doughs inside, leaving buns open. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool. In a small jar or plastic bag, combine the coconut and green food coloring. Shake until coconut is evenly colored. Sprinkle over hot dog cookies when cool and make a zig zag with the yellow frosting for mustard.

I used these for a shower I went to where we ate hot dogs. They were such a hit! Everyone thought they were so cute, and they are pretty tasty too! After reading the reviews I decided to add ...

I baked this cookie for my cub scouts, big hit!!! I used some green food, with the red, to make it look more like a hot dog.

These are adorable cookies! I had a blast making them with my 6 and 3 year olds last night. Very fun and tasty too! I may try to make the dough a bit sweeter w/ some more powdered sugar next ...

Definite cute factor but the taste was terrible. The driest, most tasteless sugar cookie I've ever had. Kids thought they were cool but took one bite and left them on their plates. A disappoi...

Does anyone have a picture?

Delicious! I made them for my dog's one year birthday party, and everyone said they were the cutest!

Really cute! The 1st grade class loved them for their year end party. I made them with the hamburger cookies I already make and they had a "cookout" at school.

These cookies looked adorable, however, they weren't very sweet. They were also very heavy. Perhaps next time I will make them smaller in size so that they aren't so dense. Cute Idea though!

These were easy and SO MUCH FUN! My daughter took them to her preschool and some kids wouldn't eat them because "I don't like hot dogs" -- so they were very realistic too.
