How to Make Aquarium Cookies

Ingredients:

Step by Step:

Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sprinkle flour on your work surface.

Roll out each portion of dough to about ¼ inch thickness on a floured surface using your rolling pin

Use a round cookie cutter to cut out fish shapes from the dough.

Place the cookies onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges.

Add 5 drops (more if you desire) of blue food coloring to your tub of icing, and mix well.

Once your sugar cookies are baked and cooled, cover the tops with prepared blue icing.

Allow the cookies to cool completely before decorating to prevent the icing from melting.

Next place roughly 10 vanilla wafers in a food processor, and grind them up until fine.

Add nerds or vanilla wafer crumbs to the bottom 1/4 of each cookie.

Next add two gold fish crackers to each cookie, just above your nerds or vanilla wafer crumbs.

Finally, add 3 to 4 sprinkles just above your gold fish, for “bubbles”. 

Store leftover cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh for longer.
