These seashore sandy beach cookies are kind of awesome, in my unbiased andÂ humble opinion. I have mentioned missing the ocean quite a bitÂ since moving to central Texas. Well, this weekend I finally traveled to the gulf coast. Everyone laughed when I said. “Wow, the water. It looks so…brown.”
Toes in the water, ass in the sand.
Why not put it into a cookie? This is a very good cookie for beginner cookie decorators. You don’t need to be precise or perfect.
On a side note, there were warning signs for snakes on the beach. Odd. Aren’t motherf**cking planes enough?
Ingredients forÂ Seashore Sandy Beach Cookies
– Cookie dough recipe, you can find a simple one here
– Royal icing recipe, you can use this one here
– Couplers (used to secure piping bags and tips)
Begin by using this recipe to make cookie dough and royal icing. It shows you step by step. Don’t be afraid.
Roll and cut out squares.
Yes, those are R’s. You will see what cat purring fabulousness I make those into in my next post.
Bake at 350. Separate most royal icing into two amounts, with a smaller third amount. The smaller amount is white, while the other two will be the sand and then the blue food coloring. If you have brown and yellow, you can use that instead of the sand-colored food coloring to mix a tan color (about two or three parts yellow, one part brown).
Remember, food coloring goes very far so only a little dot at a time when mixing in. Bag each color with piping tip. The tutorial for cookie dough and icing also shows you how, here.
Pipe out a swirly line down the center, pipe down one edge, across, then up again to connect using the tan color icing.
Pipe blue around the other side, following swirly line then along edges and fill. Once dry, pipe a white line around blue swirly edge and shake some white nonpareils on top right away. Once dry, shake off excess nonpareil sprinkles.
Optional: You can pipe out some small lines along blue and use a clean paintbrush to fade out the edges to make waves.
Allow icing to completely dry.
As a really cool and fun option you can flavor your royal icing or cookie dough with piÃ±aÂ colada flavoring. For any Buffett fans out there.
