So, I found a cookie that I made waaaaay back in June. I even made a tutorial. It’s really not the world’s most difficult cookie. It may actually be the world’s easiest. And it’s been done, many, many times. But it is so customize-able that you can make it to match any theme, and if you are looking for a quick easy cookie to make for a Labor Day BBQ, you could start these Sunday morning and they could be ready on time.
And here it is… the flip flop. (If you’re over the flip flop and actually ready to pull out your Uggs, you can scroll past to the give-away. My feelings won’t be hurt. Disclaimer- I am NOT giving away a pair of Uggs.)
- a flip flop cutter
- piping icing in one color
- thick flood (I like 5 count icing) in the same color as your piping icing and one other color
Using your flip flop cutter, cut out two flip flops, one the right way, and one with the unsharp side- so you have a left and right foot.
Outline the cookies in your piping icing.
Flood your cookies, one or two at a time, and immediately pipe on a design. At this point let dry for several hours, overnight if you can.
When the cookies are dry, pipe on the strap.
Recently, I mentioned that it would be awesome if I reached the number of FB likes equal to my birth year, before my birthday. I don’t know why that sounded so exciting to me, but it did. And since I have surpassed that number and my birthday isn’t for another month, I decided to celebrate with a giveaway.
For the past several months, I have been picking up some extra cookie cutters whenever I found one I liked. Since money is tight, and will only get tighter as Bryan goes back to school for his graduate degree, I don’t buy many cutters. Certainly not fancy ones. I have been hand cutting a lot lately. And it’s for this same reason that I have to keep this giveaway limited to US residents only (due to the cost of shipping out of the country). I apologize, and I promise that I will try to make up for it in three years when he is done, AND both kids will be out of daycare!!!!! Until he goes on for his doctorate anyway, lol.
So, to enter to win this box of random cookie cutters, go visit my FaceBook page, Ellie’s Bites Decorated Cookies and find the little helicopter right under the banner, next to the boxes that say “Photos” and “Likes”. Click on that and it will tell you what to do next.
I’ll pick a winner Tuesday night and I will use the excitement as a way to numb myself to the fact that my baby girl starts first grade next Thursday!
Have a great holiday weekend. I hope you loved your summer like I loved mine!
