Message Cookies For Dad’s Day

What a cute way to say “I love you” or “Your Great” or just list some words describing dad…”cool”, “fun”, etc. Here’s an idea for an edible “note”.

You Will Need:

  • Bag of rectangular sandwich cookies
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • About 1-2 tsp. water
  • Food coloring “markers,” available in the cake decorating section

What You Do:

  1. Pour sugar into a bowl, and add about 1-2 tsp. water. Mix the sugar and water into a paste, adding extra water as needed to reach the consistency of loose yogurt.
  2. Use a spoon or table knife to spread a thin layer of this icing on top of 12-15 cookies. The icing should dry and harden slightly within minutes.
  3. While you’re waiting, have your child brainstorm words.
  4. Now put your child to work with the food coloring markers. Have him (or you if they are too little) use his best writing to decorate each cookie with a special word.
  5. When you’re done, you’ll have a sweet, original collection. Wrap them in a basket, and give them with pride. In just an hour or so of ridiculous, hilarious, creative fun, you’ve expanded your child’s language skills while creating a gift that’s downright delicious!
