What do you mean — hamburger cookies?!?
How in the world can you make cookies out of hamburger?
Blech! That almost sounds gross, doesn’t it?
Well, these little hamburger cookies are not gross at all. They are cute as a button — and the grandkids absolutely love making them and eating them.
They are simple and easy to make, a hoot to look at, and yummy to eat.
No grease. No grilling. Only sweetness and fun.
Lemme show you just how to make these little buggers. Are you ready?
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 box of Nilla Wafer cookies
1 package of mint Grasshopper cookies
1 tub of white frosting
red food coloring
yellow food coloring
clean paint brush
First, put about half of the frosting in one small bowl and the other half in the other small bowl. Add drops of red food coloring to one. Stir so that the coloring is mixed in really good. This will be your ‘ketchup’ for your hamburger cookies.
In the other bowl, add drops of yellow food coloring and stir. This is your ‘mustard.’
Spread some of the ‘ketchup’ on the flat side of one vanilla wafer.
You’re almost done! Using your clean paint brush, brush some corn syrup on the top of your little cookie. Quickly — before the syrup dries — sprinkle some sesame seeds on the syrup.
Aren’t these little hamburger cookies clever? Aren’t they the cutest thing that you ever did see?
You will almost come out even with the Nilla wafers and the Grasshopper cookies — if Grandpa doesn’t wander in while you are making them and snitch a couple of them. If Grandpa gets carried away eating too many wafers, there will be extra Grasshopper cookies, which means Grandpa will just have to eat those extra cookies, too. (I think he planned it that way . . .)
You won’t use the whole tub of frosting. So, maybe you might want to use the extra on graham crackers if you happen to have those hanging around your house.
These cute little hamburger cookies would be fun to serve at a tea party with the grandkids. They would be fun for a birthday party. They would be fun as a treat at a summer picnic. (Summer is just around the corner, you know!)
Heck, they’d be fun ANY time!
Your grandkids will think you are the coolest grandma because you have the best cookies around!
