DIY Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Cones | Damask Love Blog

 

You never know what’s gonna be happening over here on the old bloggo, huh? Might be paper. Might be home decor. Might be sugar cookies shaped like little itty bitty ice cream scoops sitting atop little itty bitty sugar cones.

I don’t do much cooking on this blog because that’s not really what this show is about, but every once in a while, I cook up something that is a MUST for the blog…and such is the case with the cutielicious cones.

Today’s post is sort of a two-fer. I have another project using the same technique that is up on the TomKat Studio blog where I am a craft contributor. There you’ll find another great project along with several tips for creating scoop-shaped cookies like these.

The basic technique for making these is simple:

For these miniature cones, I used my smallest ice cream scoop, which is about 1″ in diameter. You can present your scoops in many ways, but for this project, I opted to perch them on top of sugar cones for a realistic look.

{1} Use a serrated knife and use a gentle sawing motion on the sugar cone

{2} Trim cone to approximately half it’s size.

{3} Apply melted chocolate to the rim of the miniature cone

{4} Place sugar cookie on top of melted chocolate and set it aside to allow chocolate to harden.

With your cookie cones assembled, you have a few options. You can stand back and admire your work. You can take a few photos with your phone and send them to all your friends and family to show off your latest creation. You can design some adorable packaging for these cuties.

If your name is Amber, you’ll do all three. When it came to packaging up these cuties patooties, TomKat White Pint Containers were an obvious choice.

      1. I have one recipe for sugar cookies that I SWEAR by! It’s absolutely perfect for shaped cookies! The recipe is from a cook book called “The Flour Pot Cookbook” – hope this helps!

    1. Kathleen! I was just going through some old blog posts and saw this comment from you! I am so happy we met at Alt Summit! I hope that you have a great first trip to the states.

  1. I find that your ideas of do-it-yourself are really Great!
    I do not very well speak English because my language is French,
    See you soon on my blog or on your blog

  2. What kind of cookiedough do you use? If I can find out in time these will be made for my daughter’s party on Saturday..

    1. Hi! So happy you like this project. The cookie recipe that I use is from a cookbook called “The Flour Pot Cookbook.” It is by far the best recipe out there for making shaped sugar cookies. Hope this helps!

  3. Hi Amber, the icecream cones are cute, but I think you missed to explain the baking part of it… after shaping with the scoop, have you baked them??? If so, didn’t it melted and turned a flat cookie?

    1. Hi Stella! Yep, they are totally baked and they didn’t melt or flatten. I shared a few tips and tricks for baking these in the post I did for TomKat Studios Blog. In a nutshell though, you’ll want to freeze your dough before baking it. Once it is frozen and solid, you can place it in a 350 oven and the dough will not spread of flatten. Hope this helps!

  4. Observers maintain the item displays a new coherent approach,
    one thing thus low in your culture, that it’s not
    necessarily realised by simply all. Based on their
    experience, they could know how much is required
    before going into details. The only tab of your concern is Public
    Templates, and no actions are necessary as it is already on the screen.

  5. These are so cute! I came by via WhimseyBox. I do have a question – Do you bake these cones, or do you leave the dough raw? If you leave it raw, is it safe to eat?
