Easy Crab Claw Cookies

Summer break is almost over.  I have to admit, I'm not looking forward to the kids returning to school......even though it will be much quieter around here.

I've been so busy with cookie orders that there hasn't been much time for posting tutorials. I made these a while back and never got around to sharing them with you. 

This cookie cutter has quickly became one of my favorite cutters. I know you probably think I must work for Whisked Away Cutters, but I don't. I just love her cutters and they really have been versatile. 

I've used it to make Mermaid Tails and these Crab Claws. I also have a few other designs that I will be showing you at a later date. 

Enough chatting and on with the tutorial. 

To make these super easy crab claw cookies you will need:

1. Outline with red icing and a #2 tip 

2. Fill in two of the sections that are NOT next to each other. Allow to dry until icing crust over (between 30 min-1 hr ...times will vary)

3. Fill in remaining sections and allow to dry completely. 

4. With red icing and a #2 tip add some little dots for accents.....crabs have bumps on their shells ya know. Let dry.

What different "outside the box" cookies have you made with your cutters? What's your most used cutter?
