Woody Toy Story Cookies

Today I’m going to show you how to decorate cute Disney’s Woody Toy Story Cookies. I don’t have a Sheriff Woody character cookie cutter so I used a shirt cookie cutter instead. And it worked perfectly.


In the past I’ve made 2 Toy Story inspired cookies. Few years back I decorated Buzz Lightyear Disney Emoji Cookies and I also made super simple Sheriff Star Cookies. And my friend Amber of SweetAmbs also created her favorite Toy Story character Aliens Cookies.


1st Toy Story movie came out in 1995. 2nd and 3rd movies followed in 1999 and 2010. And now with a brand new Toy Story 4 movie coming out in a few days I wanted to make another cookie inspired by this popular animated series. Having been a big fan of Tom Hanks, who voiced Woody; Woody Cookie was an obvious choice.


This cookie design focuses on Woody’s costume alone. You’re welcome.

Instead of a specialty Woody Character Cookie Cutter (that I don’t own) I used a T-shirt cutter. You can also use a rectangular, round or even a heart cutter would work.


I use templates in cookie decorating because I need them. They make decorating easier. But that doesn’t mean you have to.

Generally I just trace the cutter shape onto a white card stock paper. Then I draw the outlines and then I cut it out with scissors. Smaller sections I cut out with an exacto knife.



Being a huge fan of Royal Icing Transfers and I also used them to decorate Woody Cookies. In this cookie tutorial I made 3 royal icing transfers. 2 of which were made with stencils. When using stencils be sure to use thick royal icing.

  1. Sheriff Star – One of my decorating pet peeves is freehand piping of stars with royal icing. Star shape haunts me! Having a star stencil handy made Sheriff Star design an easy task. I also used this same stencil to make Patriotic Cookies.
  2. Buttons – I used the similar polka dot stencil to make gold coins for my Saint Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Cookies
  3. Buckle – To make a buckle I piped yellow royal icing onto a wax paper. Once dry you can peel off wax paper and use the decoration as desired. I employed same piping technique to make piped Royal Icing Butterflies or these adorable Mini Ladybugs.
