Summertime Cookies: Flip-Flops and Ice Cream Cones

Are you all worn out from the Fourth of July? Did you stay up too late watching the fireworks? Our local fireworks were postponed due to thunderstorms, so we stayed up too late watching a movie. If you still have a pool party or backyard BBQ (or several!) to attend over the weekend, bring these cute treats for the dessert table.

These cookies are a simple project for kids to make! My niece decorated these while we were at the beach. For both cookies, she piped the frosting using a medium sized, round decorator tip.

Flip Flop Cookies
Materials:
Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
Icing – We used Wilton decorating icing in yellow
Small, decorative candies – Any tiny candy will work here. Well, maybe not those candy eyeballs! But, just about anything else.

Pipe the straps for the flip flops onto the cookies in an exaggerated “Y” shape. Place the decorative candy in the center of the strap. So easy!

Ice Cream Cone Cookies
Materials:
Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
Icing – We used Wilton decorating icing in pink
Tiny, round sprinkles and small, round red candies (I used Jelly Belly jelly beans sliced in half. Cinnamon red hots would work as well.)

Spread or pipe the frosting in a circle on one end of the cookie, make those sprinkles fall like rain on the icing, then place the “cherry” on top. Done!

And….if you get tired of decorating cookies, you can always decorate the plate!

I hope your summer is off to a great start!
