I'm pretty sure they didn't actually ice these but just drew it on the packaging with paint or photoshop. Shameful!

The packaging these come in is SOOO ugly :sick: , extremely $2 Shop style, and the picture of how to decorate are absolutely appalling. I get that these sorts of things are meant for a slightly younger market than me but seriously! LEGO, you should be ashamed. (Rant over) The plastic they are made of is slightly flexible, so if you squish it inwards you can make a really skinny minfig cookie, outwards a fat one, etc etc. The shortbread recipe I used doesn't rise very much at all therefore they kept their shape pretty well but you'd have to be very careful as you can easily lose the hands and head shape when the mixture rises.

SHORTBREAD RECIPE:

250 Grams Softened Butter

1 Cup Icing Sugar

1 Cup Cornflour or Riceflour

2 Cups Plain Flour

Pre-Heat Oven to 160 degrees

Sift Flours and Icing sugar together into a bowl, add softened butter and mix together

when a dough is formed place mixture on a lightly floured surface

Flatten with a rolling pin to about 1.5 cm thick

The mixture should hold together, but still be a little crumbly around the edges

Cut out your Lego minifigs with your Trademark Lego Cutters and place on a greased baking tray

Place in your pre-heated oven and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes or until a light golden color

Ice (or NOT) and enjoy!

Hooray! Cookies for all. I didn't even try to ice them (for fear of them looking like the ones on the packaging) and also because I think you get a better look at the shape with them being plain. Plus who puts icing on shortbread right? :laugh:

Mz Iz, can we have a closeup of the poorly decorated icing figs on the packaging?

You *have* to whip out your piping bags and food colouring and make these babies shine. There's no avoiding it! What kind of desperate housewife are you if you don't do that? :hmpf::grin:

Also, how high are the cutters? The scale was so big and things like the salt 'n' pepper shaker so teensy that I have no way of judging Lego merchandise any more :wacko:

Thanks for the short review. :tongue:

[rant]

I have to agree, the packaging and those big iced cookie pictures are disgusting. :pir-sick::sick:

The packaging looks like what you get at those dollar stores.

Those huge pictures just look bad...

[/rant]

So, do the cookies taste good?

Would you recommend it for the price?

They are approx 1 cm high and 12 cm tall.

By high, do you mean 1 centimeter deep/thick? :wacko:

That construction worker with the creepy, bulging eyes will haunt my nightmares tonight :cry_sad::tongue:

You also have to include your shortbread recipe as part of this review. Don't you know we're putting together the EuroBricks cookbook? I already submitted a cake recipe. As soon as we review all the *other* kitchen related products with accompanying dishes we'll have a bestseller on our hands!

Anyone who wants to make submissions should post a review or PM me :wink:

Thanks for the review, I'll have to get myself some when I next place a shop at home order, given I'm about to get out of my rental dump and move into a luxurious new house with really high tech features like a working oven!

That construction worker with the creepy, bulging eyes will haunt my nightmares tonight :cry_sad::tongue:

The construction worker is actually the only one I like, it's the woman at the end next to him that's freaking me out.

Yes the cookies taste great and I would reccommend for the price as it is just another way of showing your love for Lego!

Leave no aspect of your life untouched by Lego!

Looks like Olive Oyl has had some work done to me.

She definitely has had alot of 'work' done. I'd say she is based on the tw@t that designed the packaging.

I love :sick: how they have drawn helmets and hair on the basic head shape. It makes them look severely disabled.
