 Pirates of the Caribbean has been closed for refurbishment all Summer long at Walt Disney World, and just as I assumed, it really is missed. If you’re missing POTC, or Disney in general, here’s a fun way to pass the time, all the while keeping Pirates in mind! POTC Mermaid Tail Cookies! Here’s how you make them!
What You’ll Need
Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)
Flour
Rolling pin
Wax paper
Baking sheet
Cooling rack
Kitchen knife
White cookie icing
Candy necklaces or other small candies
Colored sugar (optional)
Food decorator pens (optional)
Helpful Tip
 If the store-bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes during baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.
How To Make It
  • Print the template and cut it out. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness, then use the template and a knife to cut out mermaid tail cookies. Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and let them cool.
  • Working with one cookie at a time, spread cookie icing on the tail fin. Then spread more icing on a 2-inch section of the tail just above the fin and gently press candies into it, arranging them close together to resemble scales. Continue frosting and decorating the rest of the tail a section at a time until you reach the top. Or, you can simply sprinkle colored sugar on the icing in place of the candy.
  • Set the cookies aside until the icing hardens. Then use food decorator pens to embellish the tail fins with colorful lines, if you like.
