You may recognize aspiring actress Rosanna Pansino as a Cheerio on "Glee." Today, she tells us about her success on YouTube as "Nerdy Nummies" creator and host. She uses cookie cutters to make video game and sci-fi character shapes!
Rosanna's Tips on how to make Nerdy Nummie Cookies:
1. Star Trek Insignia – Use a star-shaped cookie cutter - Cut star cookie out and then cut off the two 'arms' to shape cookie like a "Star Trek" Insignia.
2. 8 Bit Heart Cookie - Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter + and a square cookie cutter - Cut out heart shape and then use one corner of the small square cookie cutter cutting equally spaced notches out of the outline of the cookie to give the cookie that pixilated '8-bit' look. 3. Tri-Force Cookie – Use triangle cookie cutter to cut out several cookies, shape them into a tri-force (from Zelda games). 4. Pac Man – Use a circle cookie cutter - Cut out circle cookie then cut out mouth with a pairing knife. Watch Rosanna Pansino at youtube.com/RosannaPansino.
