The Cutest Patriotic Flip Flop Cookies…
As Memorial day and 4th of July approach, I love to get ready for our outdoor gatherings and I am always looking for new ways to make the desserts more adorable.
I have done Flag and firework cookies, but I had never made The Cutest Patriotic Flip Flop Cookies…
I love that these cookies can be used for so many occasions, for example:
Memorial Day, 4th of July, Re-enlistment ceremonies, Military events, they sky is the limit!
You can change the colors and customize them for anything your heart desires!
To make these cookies, I used the following flip flop cookie cutter,
I purchased it on Amazon as a set of 3 different cutters,
but you can also purchase it on it’s own
2 egg whites
1 C powder sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
3 piping bag with a number 2 tip
2 bowl to thin the icing
2 squeeze bottles
Patriotic star sprinkles, separate the white stars
Icing colors needed:
Combine all ingredients, except the colors, 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 three bowls
Add a few drops of Super Red food dye into 1 bowl
If you donâ€™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 three piping bags
Using the remaining icing in the red and white bowls, add 2 TBSP water into the bowls to thin out the icing.
Pour the thinned icing into the squeeze bottles.
Divide your flip flop cookies in half
Using the first half cookies, outline them using the white icing.
Take the red icing and pipe in lines to make red strips.
Fill in the red icing lines with the thinner red icing
Let sit for 30 minutes before adding the white
While those cookies are drying, take the other blank cookies and pipe red lines around the edges
Fill in the cookie with the red thinner icing
Using the white icing, add polka dots to the cookie while the red icing is wet
Let sit for two hours
Take the thinner white icing and fill in the blanks on the stripped flip flops
Let those rest for two hours
Once the cookies are dry, using the blue icing in the piping bag, pipe on a line and then place a white star sprinkle in the middle on the top
Let sit for 30 minutes before enjoying!
Now for my favorite part, enjoying these cookies…
