Ariel's Red-White-and-Blue Starfish Cookies

Ariel's Patriotic Starfish Cookies

Come the July 4th, even Ariel's undersea world is star-spangled. These festive red-white-and-blue sea stars are a blast for Little Mermaid fans to help decorate and serve at your family's holiday barbecue.

You'll need:

  • Ariel's Red-White-and-Blue Starfish Cookie Template
  • Scissors
  • Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)*
  • Rolling pin
  • Flour
  • Wax paper
  • Baking sheets
  • Cooling rack
  • Kitchen knife
  • Cookie icing (red and blue)
  • White sugar pearls (found in the baking aisle of the grocery or craft stores) or similar-looking small white candies

* Note: If the store-bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes while baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.


1. Print the template and cut out the starfish shape.

2. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use the template and a knife to cut out a bunch of starfish shapes from the cookie dough. Bake the cookie cutouts according to the recipe directions and let them cool.

3. Working with one starfish cookie at a time, frost the surface with red or blue icing. Then press a line of white sugar pearls or white candies into the icing forming a line in the center of each of the starfish arms. Let the icing set up before serving.
