Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Sugar Cookie Characters

Now that I am home for Christmas, we have resumed our Harry Potter marathon and tonight we watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This is my favourite book of the series and I love the film as well.
Of course, we had to have a sweet treat to accompany the film. Inspired by these amazing cookies on Diamonds for Dessert I asked my parents which characters they would like to eat. This became tactical - Dad likes the icing so wanted a character that would have lots - Hagrid. Mum doesn't like the icing so was going to go for someone bald (Voldermort) until she realised that I was going to use chocolate for the hair. Ever a fan of white chocolate she requested Luna Lovegood which left me with the dilemma of who to eat. Of course some one had to do Harry so I had my three - Rubeus Hagrid, Luna Lovegood and Harry Potter!

I used a sugar cookie recipe from my Mum's cooking book that looks more like a potion book now after many years of use!
