Easy- Peasy Ice Cream Cone Sugar Cookies
Sometimes decorated sugar cookies can be a daunting affair. Sometimes we want something really cute and Pinterest lures us into believing we can have it! But really it leaves us in puddle of icing and tears. And yet sometimes we still want something really cute! So that’s why I want to share a truly easy and simple cookie that my kids and I whip up from time to time – Ice cream cone sugar cookies!
In order to pull off these cookies you will need to follow a couple simple directions.
You will need:
Ice Cream Cone Shaped Cookie Cutter
Food Colouring (I used pink and green Wilton gel colours)
Mini Chocolate Chips
Piping Bag fitted with a Wilton 3 Tip (optional)
Sugar Cookie Recipe (here)
Once the cookies have been cut out, baked and cooled.
Take the frosting and either pipe it onto the cookies or spread on with a knife to resemble ice cream (and yes swirls and bumps add to the effect).
If using the piping method, pipe out a drip or two to appear to be melting down the cone.
While the icing is still wet sprinkle rainbow sprinkles on the top of the cookies.
Or alternately for mint chocolate chip ice cream, dot with mini chocolate chips on green icing, while the icing is still wet.
And tada – you are done.
Allow cookies to harden for a few hours or even overnight if you plan to stack them.
Like I said easy-peasy ice cream cone sugar cookies with an adorable wow factor!!!
