READY IN: 4hrs 10mins




  • To make Cookies:
  • In a large bowl combine butter with sugar, eggs, vanilla and almond extract; beat using an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy.
  • In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; gradually stir in butter mixture until well blended; cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
  • Line cookie sheet with parchment paper (do not grease cookie sheet).
  • On lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4" thickness.
  • cut out Surfboard-shaped cookies.
  • Place cookies 2" apart on tray.
  • Bake 6-10 minutes at 350F.
  • Place cookies to wire racks to cool.
  • To make Frosting:
  • In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar, egg white powder, with water (start with 1-2 tablespoons, add more water to get spreadable consistency).
  • Divide into as many bowls depending on number of colors you want.
  • Add food coloring until you reach the desired intensity.
  • Pipe and spread icing over the entire top cookie; allow it to harden before piping in more decorative elements; make sure to leave the bottom cookie alone (no icing required there); then allow the additional icing to harden/dry as well.
  • To finish:
  • After the icing has hardened/dried, take same Surfboard cookie cutter and use to make same shapes with ice cream.
  • Place the blank cookie down, then set the surfboard-shaped ice cream on top, and set the decorated cookie on top to complete the sandwich.
