Shirt & Tie Cookies for Dad

It’s Adam’s second Father’s Day. I thought Cameron and I had better do something to commemorate the occasion. Believe it or not, a 1-year-old (at least mine) doesn’t possess a long enough attention span to make cookies start to finish. I started the process, and only made it until the dough was combined before he was chasing the dogs around the house and knocking picture frames off the end tables. But it’s the thought that counts, right?

We (I) decided to make these adorable Shirt & Tie Cookies. Although Adam is blessed to be able to work from home most of the time and therefore doesn’t have to dress up in a shirt and tie, there are a few occasions when he does. And when he puts on a tie, Cameron thinks it’s the coolest thing ever (aka: something to pull on!).

So here’s how you make the cookies: First, combine the cookie ingredients in a bowl with a mixer. Then stir in chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into a 13x11-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. You may need to trim the edges to create a straight edge.

Using a ruler and something to cut with (I used a pizza cutter), cut the dough crosswise into seven (1 1/2-inch) strips, and then crosswise into five (2 1/2-inch) pieces to make 35 rectangles.

Place the rectangles on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes – this will help them set up a bit so they don’t spread when baking.

Once they are baked and cooled, it’s time to frost! I tinted half of my almond bark green and left half white, but you can make whatever colors you want. Let the cookies stand until the bark is set.

Now it’s time to get creative. Decorate the frosted cookies like shirts and ties. Kids (who are slightly older than mine) will love helping!

I know my boys loved the finished product!

Make these adorable Shirt & Tie Cookies for Dad, Grandpa, or any special guy in your life for Father’s Day – even if they don’t wear ties every day.
