BBQ Cookies for Father's Day



The other day I found a flat, plastic BBQ mitt and spatula at the store (cake decorations) and instantly thought of cookies. Sugar cookies topped with royal icing, to be exact. Yippee! 


The cookie version worked out pretty well. I utilized the same gingham technique on the mitt (borrowed from Glorious Treats) that I used on my gingham picnic cookies. I added the stitching detail with a black AmeriColor Gourmet Writer. The spatula is brushed with silver luster dust, if you can't tell, and the wood grain handle is given detail with a brown Gourmet Writer.

Don't the mustard and ketchup make a cute pair? :) 
In the beginning they were faceless, but they looked so plain.

I knew I needed to add something.  It's amazing what a difference a pair of eyes and a little smile makes:)


To make these little guys I used a rectangle cookie cutter and cut the rectangle dough in half. At the top, I cut in from the two sides to represent the twisty part, and then the pointy top was cut out freehand and placed firmly on top.

Store-bought icing eyes and edible marker smiles finished them off, and there you go!

These sweet little fellas should bring some cheer to any dad on Father's Day, and hopefully will satisfy their taste buds too!  Make some for your own "Grill Master"!


Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!
