In the underwater world where Princess Ariel comes from, sand dollars are scattered across the sandy ocean floor. Shaped like cookies and adorned with distinctive petal-shaped patterns, they’re just the sort of trinket a mermaid is apt to collect. For fun, invite your little princess to transform a batch of sugar cookies into a trove of sweet sand dollar treats.
Sand Dollar Cookies
- Baked sugar cookies
- White or butter cream frosting
- Slivered almonds
- Chocolate sprinkles
Working with one cookie at a time, frost the top, leaving a thin border around the perimeter uncovered.
Help your child arrange five slivered almonds in a flower-shaped pattern atop the center, as shown.
Add a few chocolate sprinkles to resemble the natural holes often found in sand dollars.
