Directions

  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 a little bit more sugar and they turned out wonderful. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

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 time. The cookies just melt in your mouth. This will be on my list to make the next time I get called for cookies for the school. Would likely have to dbl. the recipe for that though. Thumbs up!!
