Despite a complete and utter lack of grace, I still have a thing for ballet. There’s something so elegant and feminine about tutus, even in cookie form. These pretty cookies are beautiful and easy to make.
My favorite design began as a shell, trimmed with a heart. I’m kind of partial to this vintage Wilton version, but any shell will do.
The great thing about this cookie is that it’s completely customizable. If you prefer sleeves, take the trimming a bit further and use the heart to create a v-shaped neckline. For a fuller skirt, cut at a different angle, perhaps with a different cutter. The possibilities are endless!
Decorating this cookie can be as simple or complicated as you like. To make these, you will need:
Begin by marking a line between the bodice and skirt. I use this trick to create uniform cookies without dragging out my Kopykake.
If you don’t have a shell cutter, try these ideas. I’ve had great luck with several cutters from my collection.
You don’t need a monster cutter collection to make amazing cookies, just a little imagination!
