How to: Make Cute Surfboard Cookies for any Occasion (makes 2 1/2 dozen)
- 3 C flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 C soft unsalted butter
- 1 C granulated sugar
- 1 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- – Cream the soft butter with the sugar until the combination is smooth not grainy to the touch in a mixing bowl.
- -Add egg…Continue to mix.
- -Add the vanilla.. Continue mixing.
- -Sift the four, baking soda, and salt together.
- -Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
- -Continue mixing to make sure all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
- -Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling wrap completely covering the entire dough ball.
- -Put in the refrigerator for about 6 hours or overnight (sometimes we only chill for 1 hour if we need o make them fast, and the recipe still holds firm).
Check to see if the dough is firm.
- -Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- -Pull the cookie dough out of the refrigerator and sit it out to soften up a bit.
- – Put flour out on the cutting board, rub flour on the rolling pin (this rolling pin lets you measure the thickness of your dough), and work some flour into
the batter. (if needed).
- -Roll the dough out on the cutting board and using the cookie cutter begin to make your cookies. (with this cutting board/mat, we cut the cookies using the cookie cutter and remove the unwanted dough, makes for better shaped cookies)
- -Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. (these are pre-cut sheets and are my favorite)
- -Using a metal spatula move the cut cookies to the parchment lined cookie sheet.
- -Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes.
- -Let cool for 10 minutes before decorating
- 2 egg whites
- 1 C powder sugar
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 piping bag with a number 2 tip
- 3 bowl to thin the icing
- 3 squeeze bottles
- Combine all ingredients into a stand up mixing bowl
- If the icing looks a little soupy add in 1/2 C powder sugar
mix on medium speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes
- Split the icing into two bowls
- Add a few drops of Super Red food dye into 1 bowl
If you don’t like the shade of the color, add 1-2 more drops
- Add a few drops of sky blue into the second bowl
- Leave the 3rd bowl white.
- Scoop some of the icing into the two piping bags
- Using the remaining icing in the bowls, add 2 TBSP water into the bowls to thin out the icing.
- Pour the thinned icing into the squeeze bottles.
- Using the sky blue piping bag, pipe a line around half of the cookie like shown in the image
- Using the white bag, pipe a line around the other half.
- Using the thinned blue icing, fill in the blue side of the cookie with the blue icing.
- Using the red icing, pipe lines to create a “strip” like shown in the in-process picture
- Pipe white lines around the red lines
- Use the thinned red icing to fill in the red lines.
- Using the white thinned icing, fill in the spots for the white
