Father’s Day Tie Cookies
Celebrate dad on his special day with these cute, and easy to make, Father’s Day cookies. Even though your child is too young to bake on their own, they can help mix, measure and decorate the sweet treats for their proud papa. This children’s baking idea also doubles as a STEM activity! Turn your kitchen into a science lab, letting your little learner explore the ingredients or ask them to add and subtract quantities of each item.
After the science and math fun is done, it’s time start making dad his Father’s Day surprise!
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Dad’s favorite cookie recipe or a boxed mix
- Icing in at least two colors
- Rolling pin
- Square and rectangle shaped cookie cutters
- Mix the cookie dough.
- Flatten the dough with the rolling pin.
- Use the cookie cutter to create diamonds and rectangles. Your child will puzzle these pieces together into a tie shape.
- Turn one square, making it a diamond shape (this will be the knot of the tie). Place a rectangle below it. Add another diamond shape at the bottom to complete the tie.
- Repeat for more tie cookies.
- Bake the cookies.
After the cookies cool your child can ice them. Frost the cookies with one solid color and add another hue to make a pattern, polka dots or spell the word “dad.”
