Fun Summer Cookies {Cookie Decorating}

Ahh the joys of summer…. the sun, the pool, and the cookies?  Well, when you’re as cookie obsessed as me, any season is a good excuse to make cookies!  Here are a few cookies that celebrate the joys of summer.  This weekend could be the perfect time to try a new design or improve your cookie skills.  As with any craft, cookie decorating takes quite a bit of practice to master, but the nice thing is, it’s usually easy to find people willing to eat your “practice.”

To get you started, I’ve posted my favorite cookie recipe HERE

And a couple decorating tutorials are HERE and HERE.

(See additional links below for how-to’s on specific designs)

 Happy Cookie Decorating and Happy Summer!

    How could anyone eat such works of art! I think I would put them all in a big shadow box and place it on my wall as a piece of art!

    Happy baking, Katie from

    Where I just LOVE your treats <3
    I'm from Denmark, and right now, im in the hospital (very sad) :(
    I really like baking, myself, and you are giving me a lot of inspiration.
    I just thought, you should know, and I really look forward to see all the upcoming posts…
    If you love this so much (it seems like you do), I think, you should go further with it, you could really come far :-)
    Well, it's up to yourself, and I know that everyone around you are very happy to eat your cakes and cookies.
    Have a good summer!

    Once again, you inspire me to make more and more cookies. I also wonder where you buy the bathing suit/bikini cookie cutters? My local stores only sell flip flops, martini glass and sunglasses. Thx in advance and kudos!!! Keep up the great work!

    These are all amazing! I wish I had the patience to bake and decorate sugar cookies! Not to mention the central air conditioning to bake at all during the summer! I think I'll just enjoy looking at yours! Love you!
