Beach Cookies!

How about a Beach Cookie to start your week and ward off the Monday blahs! Last week I was making a bunch of beach themed cookies when I came across some beachy cookies on Cake Central. I love to look at all the cookie designs and I fell in love with the pretty simplicity of this beach cookie. This cookie was submitted by Sassyzan. Well, Sassyzan's post sent me to Montreal Confections where she gave step by step video directions on how to make this cookie. Trust me, it is easy and simple to follow. You can use your own sugar cookie recipe, or use my favorite "go to" cookie and frosting recipe!
Beach Cookie

 
round Sugar Cookie
blue, white, and brown Frosting for the Beach
orange and blue Frosting for the flip flops
a few Pretzels
C and H washed raw Sugar
or any large grain sugar
I used a #2 Wilton tip to outline my cookie. Make a
design to look like an uneven shoreline. Fill in the blue.
Mix together some crushed pretzels and some of the sugar.
I crushed the pretzels, and then added the sugar until
I had the look I wanted. The sugar will make the sand sparkle.
Take your brown frosting and outline the other side of the 
cookie. Fill it in and then while it is wet, sprinkle the 
"sand" mix on the brown.
Brush off the excess sand mix as best as you can.
Take your white frosting and a #2 tip and zig zag across
the cookie where the sand and water mix. My frosting was a little
thinner than I would have liked it, but it worked.
Use a dry paint brush to pull the white frosting, just slightly
over into the blue to create waves hitting the shore.
Then do it again, and 
again!
Make some small flip flops with your orange frosting.
Freehand or use a stencil.
Use the blue frosting to make the straps on the flip flops.
Place your flip flops on the sand!

Thanks for going to the beach with me!

  4. How cute! And they look like they taste good too. I hate it when I have a cookie that looks really cute, but then tastes horrible. Thank you so much for sharing this!

    1. Megan, I know what you mean. I have been using the same sugar cookie recipe for many years, and everyone seems to like it. The best thing about it is that it is so easy to work with when using cookie cutters. I holds it's shape great. Let me know if you try it. Thanks!
