These cookies just scream “fun”. Not only are they adorable little surfboards but they’re also patriotic with their red, white, and blue coloring as well. While these cookies are perfect for a 4th of July gettogether, you could easily bake them up for a beach-themed birthday party or summer outdoor BBQ as well. 

And if you’re feeling patriotic, make certain that you have these Mickey Mouse Cinnamon Rolls on your radar. The festive sprinkles really add to the fun! 

What’s the trick to decorating these Patriotic Surfboard Cookies?

The trick is to have fun! But in all seriousness, don’t overly stress about the decorating of these cookies. They’re meant to be pretty enough to eat, and no one will be staring at them for that long before they’re taking bite after bite.

If you’re making these for a fun birthday party treat, you could even let the kids take over and decorate them all on their own. (and it’s a great way to get out of having to decorate them all by yourself, too!)

4. Scoop 1/3 of each icing color into the three piping bags. One red, one blue, one white.

5. Using the remaining icing in the bowls, add 2 TBSP water into the bowls to thin out the icing. (This will make it easier to fill in the cookies)

6. Pour the thinned icing into the squeeze bottles. 

Decorating directions:

1. Using the sky blue piping bag, pipe a line around half of the cookie. Using the white bag, pipe a line around the other half.

2. 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

5. Take a few of the white star sprinkles and place them on the blue side.
