Easter "Egg" Cookies~California Style

I made these cookies for my husband's friend who is really enthusiastic about surfing. He loves to surf every chance he gets.
On Easter day,  he is set to leave for Afghanistan for 6 months(working for the Army Corps of Engineers overseeing construction projects). To go along with his farewell gift (a book on surfing, for him to daydream with until he returns to the water),  I made him some surfboard cookies.  Of course I had to decorate them in bright and cheery spring colors. They remind me of Easter eggs:)

I was happy to hear that he loved the cookies, and wish him well!

HAPPY EASTER to all!

  24. Very cute to make the surfboards for easter! I made some surfboard cookies similar to these for a beach themed baby shower last year and it was so fun! I love all the amazing stuff you do with food! I'm a new follower! I would love it if you stopped by my blog and checked out my surfboard cookies!
