Summertime Cookies


My friend asked me if I would make some decorated sugar cookies for her family get-together and gave me free rein on which kind to make:)  I decided on some simple, summertime themed cookies and she loved them! I had fun making them too:)
Each cookie just screams summertime to me.  I LOVE watermelon and have eaten could easily eat a whole watermelon in two days. We all know that ice cream is the quintessential summertime treat, whether it's in a cone or enjoyed as a sundae. The flowers are inspired by sunflowers, which are my favorite flowers, and we usually grow every year! Finally, the sun represents summer for me...drawing out longer days and shining bright.
The cookies are sugar cookies with royal icing.  I used AmeriColor soft gel paste food coloring for tinting the royal icing and AmeriColor edible markers for drawing the faces and the detail on the watermelon rind.  Sprinkles topped the ice cream cones and mini chocolate chips are the watermelon seeds.

Happy Summer everyone!!!
