Super Simple Ice Cream Sugar Cone Cookie Recipe

Super Simple Ice Cream Sugar Cone Cookie Recipe

We’re totally obsessed with these adorable Ice Cream Cone Sugar Cookies! Not only are they super simple to create, they taste beyond delicious & are just too cute. There’s something so perfect about a sugar cookie recipe. Perhaps it’s the simplicity within the recipe or the ideal icing to cookie ratio. Either way, we love an excuse to decorate some cookies & treat ourselves to some sweets!

We used our delicious Sugar Cookie recipe & the most perfect icing recipe from this mini donut tutorial to create these cookies. Top your iced cookies with sprinkles, chopped chocolate, or anything else you’d like. They can easily be color coordinated to match any theme or party. As for the cookie cutters, we love this pack of 30 from Bed Bath & Beyond. So many great shapes to create all different types of cookies! Again, so many options for any upcoming party or celebration you may have. While these cuties won’t necessarily cool you off in this summertime heat, they sure do taste good!

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
