Mark your calendars, Shark Week is back early this year! Tune into Discovery Channel this Sunday, at 8/7 CT for a week full of educational shark programming. To celebrate, I’ve partnered with Baker’s to share a fun shark cookie perfect for your Shark Week festivities! While they may look fierce, they’re perfectly sweet. 😉
My friend Jordan and I made these cookies together. I had never made cookies like this before so I was super excited to try my hand at this style of cookie. It’s essentially a sugar cookie with lemon royal icing frosting.
Baker’s is the closest full-size grocery store by my house, which makes it perfect for running to get supplies. It’s convenient, affordable, and always super clean with a great selection. I’m a huge proponent of store brands, so I’m all about their Simple Truth and Private Selection brands. Same ingredients, less money!
Shark Week Cookies
Soft Gel Paste Food Coloring
Shark and Surfer Cookie Cutters
Cold Unsalted Butter
Real Vanilla Extract
Fresh Lemon Juice
Light Corn Syrup
To make these, I used the best sugar cookie recipe out there. For simple and easy-to-understand directions on how to make these cookies check out Alison Faulkner’s cookie recipe. It is totally worth it. (BTW, this is not an affiliate link, just the recipe that all my friends swear by.) If they turned out this good when someone totally new to this type of cookie decorating did it, you know it’s good!
Picture perfect Shark Week cookies that are as fun to eat as they are to make!
Questions of the Day: Do you watch Shark Week? Have you ever made cookies like this before? What’s your favorite cookie flavor?
