Tie-Dye Cookies

My little brother absolutely adores tie-dye.  Every time my parents or I go on vacation, we’re always keeping our eyes peeled for that perfect tie-dyed t-shirt to bring home.  (We’ve had good luck at the St. Arnold Brewery in Houston and the Left Hand Brewery in Longmont, CO; what is it with breweries and tie-dye?)

Anyway, I was trying to decide what to send my brother for his birthday (today!) and I thought tie-dye cookies would be perfect.  (I sent some cookies iced like gift boxes to my dad for his birthday last month and they all arrived intact, so I figured I might as well make a habit of it.)  I wasn’t sure how to go about accomplishing the tie-dye effect, though.  After some online inspiration and a bit of messy experimentation, I managed to come up with a technique that I think conveys tie-dye pretty well:

Tie-Dye Cookies

Aren’t they cute?  I just base-iced the cookies in one color, used a spoon to swirl two other colors of icing on top, and then dragged a toothpick from the center to the edges.  Like real tie-dye, they all end up a bit different.

Happy Birthday, little brother!  Hope you enjoy your treats. 🙂
