These oyster cookies were a lot of fun to make and the best part was I had a whole 3 batches done in about 40 minutes!

They were a big hit at the Sea party to say the least, sitting on their plate with a nice bed of brown sugar ‘sand’ beneath them.  Guests would walk up to the food table and ‘OHH’ and ‘AWW’ when they spotted these little pearls!…EHEMMM, no pun intended 😉

Tools & Supplies:

  • Packet of large white Sixlets (found at Walmart or WinCo Foods)
  1. Pack of oyster or clam shaped cookies (I bought Baker’s Batch shortbread cookies at the Dollar store)-2 shortbread cookies will make up one oyster cookie, so buy as many packs as needed
  2. Blue frosting (you can buy white frosting at the 99 Cent Store and add blue dye or buy it already blue at from a grocery store.
  3. Piping bag with a star tip

Lay out the bottom shortbread cookie, face down

Squeeze out a tall swirl of frosting at about 2 or 2 1/2 inches in height for the top cookie to sit on.  This way the oyster is opened up more and shows off it’s little pearl nicely.

Place candy pearl onto side of frosting

Place second cookie gently onto frosting, making sure to tilt it at one end

Now sprinkle a bed of sand (brown sugar) onto a serving plate and carefully transfer cookies over.  CUTE!!!
