Sand Dollar Cookies


From all of my beach adventures lately, I feel like quite the beach bum. Even though I've lived
in Florida most of my life, I never really took advantage of the beach in the summer except
for annual vacations to Marco Island with my grandma as a child. Some of my favorite summer memories involve my brother and I skimboarding on the beach (I still have a scar to prove it), floating
in the pool all day, and collection buckets and buckets of shells. It's been almost a decade later, but I've still kept a lot of my "treasures" and whenever I seashells I always think of those fun summer days. 

One year, I was particularly lucky to find some mini sand dollars washed up on the shore and they have been the pride of my treasure collection ever since. When I was baking cookies the other day, I suddenly had the idea to make them into sand dollars. 
One of my better ideas? Absolutely. I should have been making these years ago...


Sand Dollar Sugar Cookies

In stead of the royal icing I made a simple glaze and placed the slivered almonds on top to give them their nautical look. ;)
