Ice Cream Cone Cookies for a Birthday Party

Did you know that yesterday was National Ice Cream Day? Yep, I'm a day late! Seems that everyday is some sort of food day, and I just happened to make these ice cream cone cookies the other day for my grandson's 4th birthday party, at his request.
As you can see they are not difficult cookies to decorate, but they sure are festive! Ice cream cookies are some of my very favorite cookies to decorate!
Ice Cream Cone Sugar Cookies

Variety food gel colors (For the cones I used Americolor warm brown, with a touch of yellow.)
Assorted sprinkles (jimmies)
Brown food marker
1. Roll out dough, cut out cookies and bake according to recipe. Let cool completely.
2. Using a #3 tip, fill a piping bag with the brown cone colored royal icing. Outline the cone triangle and fill it with the icing. Let it dry for about 20 minutes, or overnight.*
3. Using different colored royal icing, outline the scoops and fill them. Add sprinkles while still wet. For a double scoop cone, add the bottom scoop and let dry it for about 20 minutes, then add the second scoop.
4. Add bottom borders to the ice cream, where it meets the cone.
5. Let cookies dry completely.

* I allowed the cones to dry overnight and then, using a ruler and a brown food marker, detailed the cones. You may choose to detail the cones at the end, though the cookies must be completely dry.

Have fun!
