Spoon-Shaped Sugar Cookies for Ice Cream Sundaes

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

A little twist on the old-fashioned wooden ice cream spoons that we used as kids… This image is from Martha Stewart Living, which offers a template for cutting your own spoon shapes with a paring knife. But we found some cookie cutters to help.

These cookie spoons would be a really cute idea for a party (and a nice homemade touch if you’re serving store-bought ice cream and toppings). We doubt you can forego real, non-edible spoons entirely, but it would be fun to have a little cookie to scoop up some ice cream.

If you wanted to get fancy, you could pipe people’s names onto the handle of the spoons for personalized sundaes.

Here’s the original recipe:

If you want to buy a spoon-shaped cookie cutter, rather than free-hand it, we found a couple of sources:

Tennis Racket or Spoon Cookie Cutter, $2.19 at Amazon
Spoon Cookie Cutter, $1.75 at the Cookie Cutter Shop

What do you think? Adorable? Or more trouble than it’s worth?
