How To Make Decorated Golf Cookies For Father's Day

Once upon a time, I didn't know how to make cookies that looked like anything but a sadly mishapen chocolate chip cookie. And then I read a magical book called Cookie Craft and it was like a portal to this fantastic world of sugar and art. (You might have seen it around before with those beautiful blue and lime green snowflakes on the cover.) And it kind of created a little cookie making monster out of me. And I liked that. The end.

Except it's not the end because those two girls behind the Cookie Craft are re-releasing it with a gorgeous new cover AND it's now in paper back!

But don't worry -- it still has all those details, techniques and planning suggestions that you've come to rely on. Like this cookie planning chart that reminds you of all the details you're going to forget exactly one jillion times before those cookies finally make it out the door.

And it has 150 cookie designs to help jump-start your creativity. Like these golf cookies for Father's Day! They are my favorite cookie in the whole book. Cutting out an actual hole for the golf cup? Brilliant. And one thing led to another....and then I had a whole pile of golf cookies on my counter and I couldn't account for the last 2 days of my life.

If you are making golf cookies for Father's Day, I highly recommend you check out THESE cookies from Callye at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle and then find your bus cutter and come back here to make these golf cart cookies.

1. Before baking, flatten the top of the cut-outs with a knife. When the cookies are baked and cooled, grab some medium-consistency blue icing and a #3 tip and pipe the hood and top of the golf cart. Let it dry for a couple of hours so the blue doesn't bleed into the white.
2. Outline and fill the middle are of the golf cart with medium-consistency white icing and a #3 tip. Pipe the bumper with medium-consistency gray icing and a #3 tip. Let dry for 30 minutes.
3. Add tires and a steering wheel with thick consistency black icing and a #3 tip. Give the cart some headlights with the white icing. (Do golf carts have headlights?) (They should if they don't.) (You know. Safety first and all.)
4. Add a license plate with the white icing. Pipe a square shape in orange and 3-4 random gray rectangles above it. Let everything dry for an hour.
5. Add the club shafts with thick gray icing and a #1.5 tip. Pipe a strap for the golf bag with the orange. Add a hood line, sides, and outline the top with thick blue icing and a #3 tip. When the license plate is fully dry, use a black food color marker to add letters.
