The Freshman Cook: Beach Cookies!

Please Rate this Recipe

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 useĀ my favorite “go to” cookie and frosting recipe!

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 theĀ 

cookie. Fill it in and then while it is wet, sprinkle theĀ 

“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, andĀ 


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.
