Sailors are bakers, too! And we have sailboats on our cars, our jackets, our bags, our iPhone cases, heck - even our bodies. Why not put some sailboats on our cookies? We've scoured the internet and come up with some really great creative ideas for nautically inspired holiday baking projects. You'll be the hit of your fleet's holiday get together with any one of these.
Meringues are also a wonderful non-caloric Christmas treat! Making them look like liferings makes for a delicious treat that also communicates to your guests a dedication to safety. It says, "I'm responsible, yet whimsical."
There are many sailboat cookie examples out there, but we use this one to illustrate just how easy it is to screw up a sailboat on a cookie. Which way's that flag flying? How far back is that mast? If you're looking for cookies that are perfect little sailboats, we present these, from the same baker, as an illustration.
These are harder to screw up, but just as adorable. These say to your guests, "I have an identical batch of cookies at my beach house. Did I tell you I have a beach house? But it's booked solid for the next ten years."
This is the kind of thing that says to your friends, "I had knee surgery over the holidays." But it's still way more cooler than the standard old gingerbread house.
