Crawfish Cookies

7 May

So I found a really cute idea for cookies here: http://www.livinglocurto.com/2013/04/crawfish-cakes/#sthash.0YkUMMLg.35gKtYP2.dpbs

And decided to blog my recreation.  My son’s mascot is the mudbug, which, if you didn’t already know, is a crawfish, and basically a staple of living in Louisiana.  So for teacher appreciation, I whipped up some of these puppies to leave in the teacher’s lounge.

My store does not carry lady fingers, so this is the closest I could find:

I found the other ingredients, though:

Twizzlers

Candy eyes (found at Wal-Mart)

Canned Icing

Open the finger cookie.

Dot red icing as shown

Cut a Twizzler into 4 even pieces

Cut the end of the Twizzler into claws, and stick onto the dotted icing

Squiggle some of the icing onto the cookie

And replace the top of the cookie

Squiggle Icing onto the top of the cookie, add candy eyes, and Voila!!!  Crawdaddy cakes!

The red Icing stains your fingers, but I think that’s unavoidable

Try to earnestly find lady fingers, because I don’t think that the “Vienna fingers” worked as well as the lady fingers would have
