How to make it

  • In a large bowl, using a mixer set on medium-high speed, beat the butter until fluffy. On medium speed, beat in the sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat in the egg and vanilla. On medium-low, gradually beat in the flour. Shape the dough into a disk; wrap in plastic and chill for 2 hours.
  • Divide the dough into 3 sections. Return 2 sections to the refrigerator. Knead the red and brown food colorings into the remaining dough until a reddish-brown color is reached; rewrap the dough and chill 30 minutes.
  • Grease 2 baking sheets. Divide the untinted dough into 18 equal pieces. Using your hands, roll each piece into a 3-inch bun. Place the buns onto the prepared baking sheets. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, make a deep indentation in the center of each bun.
  • Divide the tinted dough into 18 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 3-inch log; round the ends to resemble hot dogs. Place in center of split dough buns on baking sheets; freeze assembled hot dogs for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Bake the cookies until set, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
  • Using a tube of yellow icing fitted with a round tip, pipe a squiggly line onto each cookie to resemble mustard; sprinkle green sugar on top to resemble relish.
  • Tip: Don't Have a Round Tip?
  • If you do not have a round tip designed to fit onto a tube of decorating icing, spoon the icing into a small resealable plastic bag and snip off 1 corner.
