A summer treat: flip-flop shaped sugar cookies

I decided to make a batch of flip-flop sugar cookies to take up to the lake this weekend. Since I didn’t have a flippy floppy shaped cookie cutter, I drew my own template onto parchment paper and cut it out; then I placed the template on the rolled-out dough and traced around the template with a small knife to cut out each cookie. This may be too tedious for some, and I must admit, my cookies looked a lot like square monster feet at first, but once I added the first layer of icing and then the decorative “straps”, my flip flops came to life!

These flip-flop cookies would be fun to serve at a pool party or to bring as a hostess gift for a trip to the beach! And as always, I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and the delicious but oh-so-simple icing. Bon appetit!
