Super Simple Summer Seashell Cookies

{***remember those "blogger fonts" that Kevin and Amanda posted? This is the "Bake at 350!" Very strange and cool to use your own handwriting as a font!***}

I have news for you...

IT'S JUNE!!!  Yes, JUNE!

Kiddo's last day of school was today.  Is it me, or are the school years getting loooooonger? I'm pretty sure when I was a kid, we got out in mid-May and school started again after Labor Day.  (And we walked to school uphill BOTH ways, in the snow, in Houston.) ;)

Anyhoo...kiddo & I decided to go with summer themed cookies as a little thank-you gift for his teachers.

The shells and sand dollar cookies are so simple to make, but I really love them.  Sometimes simple is good.

To make the cookies, you'll need:
With a #2 tip, outline the shell shape in turquoise.

Thin the white & turquoise icings (reserve a bit for later) with water, a little at a time, until it is the consistency of thick syrup.  Cover with a damp dishtowel and let sit several minutes.

Stir gently with a rubber spatula to pop any large air bubbles that have formed. Transfer to squeeze bottles.

Flood one side of the shell with thinned white icing.  Use a toothpick to guide into corners and edges and to pop and air bubbles.

Flood the other side with turquoise.

Let the cookies sit at least one hour.

With a #2 tip (I used a PME tip 1.5), pipe the detail.  Either lines....

....or dots.

Let dry overnight.

PS.....did I mention it's JUNE?!?
