Ice Cream Cookies with a Cherry on Top

Ice Cream Cookies via

I am ready for summer. I want to swim, sit in the sun, pick some pretty flowers from my garden, and eat a lot of ice cream. If only we could find a way to enjoy ice cream without worrying about it melting in the heat. Guess what? We can enjoy them with worrying if we make ice cream cookies! You can choose between sandwiches, single scoop cones, double scoop cones,  ice cream Sundays and Popsicles or enjoy them all.

Supplies for Ice Cream Cookies:

15 Second Icing in these colors:

  1. Tan (for the cone)
  2. White
  3. Pink
  4. Brown
  5. Red

Ice-Cream-Cookies-Decorated-Sugar-Cookies-thebearfootbakerI used a royal icing transfer for the cherry on top. To make them, follow this eye tutorial and use red icing and not white. With the white icing, pipe a line while the red is wet so the cherry will look shiny. You can make them a few weeks in advance and store them in a cool dry airtight container away from the sun.

Now for the cookies, begin by outlining the ice cream sections with the colors or flavors you want.
Then, flood each layer allowing dry time in between each.
While the brown icing is wet, add the sprinkles.
Outline and flood the cone with the tan icing and let it dry for about 30 minutes.
Next, and add the details to the cone following the picture.
Add the royal icing cherry to the top of the chocolate with a drop of red or brown icing.

Carefully outline each color with the machine set on low. For the white, airbrush with brown or blue. For the pink, use red or pink. For the brown and tan, use brown.  For information on airbrushing, click here.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies:

Ice Cream Cookies by thebearfootbaker.comCookie decorating doesn’t get any easier than these. Once you make your cookie dough, add some Brown AmeriColor Gel and roll it out and cut it like you normally would. Polk a few holes in the unbaked cookies and then bake them. Once they are baked and cooled, pipe some thick white icing with the star tip and place another cookie on top.

These are super simple and will give your ice cream cookie platter a lot of variety and a 3D effect. Add some cute twine from Baker’s Stock and your guest will think you spent hours on these.
