Beaded Necklace Mardi Gras Cookies

It’s so sad how much I love making Mardi Gras themed food when I’ve never actually been. I always visit off season, due to my fears of mass chaos.

All I’m saying is, anyone who flashes their goods for plastic beads should take a step back and look at the big picture. You can get those at the dollar store. So, if you think your goods are valued at $1 or less then go ahead. I’m valued at infinity, so instead I buy plastic beads for a dollar. Or make them out of cookies. Then the value is at least a little more even in this case.

You know my obsession with wearable food, and these mardi gras cookies are no exception.

Begin making your Mardi Gras cookies by rolling out your cookie dough. Use the mini circle cookie cutter to cut out your “beads.”

 

Measure out some baker’s twine and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Dip your finger in water and coat the bottom of each cookie. Place cookies, wet side down, on baker’s twine. Make certain they are spread out. Press each circle down a little so that it sticks to the string. You don’t need to smush it to oblivion, a light press will do.

 

Bake for about 7-9 minutes until the bottom of each cookie just begins to brown. Once cool, color your icing into three batches: yellow, green, and purple. Pour into a piping bag with coupler and tip.

Pipe a circle of icing around the edge of the cookie, then fill circle with more icing. Ice the rest of the Mardi Gras cookies so that you have a pattern of yellow, green, and purple. Allow to completely dry before tying into a necklace.
