Happy National Shortbread Day! Since most of the country (even us here in Florida) are still having chilly weather, I thought I could brighten your day with the Under the Sea Shortbread cookies.

They are easy and fun and start with a pre-made shortbread cookie. It doesn’t get any easier than that. The kids will love them and will definitely make you think of summer.

How to Make Beach Themed Cookies

With an offset spatula, spread blue buttercream on the flat, backside of one shortbread cookie. Cover it with icing evenly and entirely.

Cover 1/3 of the cookie with brown sugar and gently press down. Using your green and white sprinkles, form your “coral reef.” Your toothpick will help get the sprinkles in place without ruining the icing.

Place your fish-shaped cracker on blue portion of the cookie. Follow by placing round silver sprinkles by the fish’s mouth – these act like the ‘bubbles.’
