Mermaid Cookies in 5 easy steps
Step 1: Gather your ingredients and unleash your mermaid magic! 🌟✨
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food coloring (blue, green, or any mermaid-inspired shades)
Edible pearl decorations (optional)
Mermaid-themed cookie cutters
Step 2: Mix and mold the dough, infusing it with whimsical colors of the sea! 🧁🌊
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set it aside. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms. Divide the dough into separate portions if you plan to use different colors.
Step 3: Shape your cookies using mermaid-themed cutters, bringing your underwater fantasies to life! Add Mermaid-Inspired Colors. 🧜♀️🍪
Take each portion of dough and add a few drops of food coloring. Knead the dough until the color is evenly distributed. Add more food coloring as needed to achieve your desired shades of blue, green, or any mermaid-inspired colors. For a marbled effect, you can lightly swirl different colored doughs together.
Step 4: Bake to golden perfection, filling your home with the aroma of enchantment! 🌟🔥
Preheat your oven to the temperature specified in your cookie recipe. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the colored dough to a thickness of about ¼ inch. Use the mermaid-themed cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough. Place the cut-out cookies onto parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving a small space between them. If desired, press edible pearl decorations onto the cookies for added flair.
Step 5: Share the joy as you indulge in these magical treats with your little ones! 🎉🧡
Place the baking sheets with the cookies into the preheated oven and bake according to the cookie recipe instructions, usually around 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges turn slightly golden. Keep a close eye on them to prevent over-baking. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
