Servings: 40 Summer Beach Cookies
Make It Happen
Pre-heat the oven to 325°F. Break and place the cookie dough cubes 2” apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake 13-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet and transfer to cooling racks. Let cool completely.
Prepare the frosting by whisking together the powdered sugar, corn syrup, water, and a few drops of food coloring. Continue whisking until all the ingredients are blended, and your frosting is smooth.
Place the icing in a piping bag. Snip off one corner and begin to frost the cookies. Start by outlining the outer edge of each cookie with the blue icing. Allow them to set for 5 minutes.
Fill in the center of each cookie with more blue icing, creating a pool or ocean-like effect.
Before the icing in the center completely hardens, add on your decorations! Start by cutting the feet off a few of the graham cracker bears so just the torso and head remain. Place a gummy ring on each cookie and position the bear inside the ring. It should look like the bear is floating in an inner tube!
Place a graham fish or two on some of the cookies to add a little extra touch of underwater fun.
Add white sprinkles on the blue icing to create bubbles in the water.
Get even more creative with the toppings by adding sour streamers as beach towels with some umbrellas overtop and positioning the Teddy Grahams as sunbathers.
These cookies will certainly make a splash anywhere you take them. They’re perfect for beach-themed parties, summer gatherings, or snack time.
You can store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
