(Family Features)What better way to spoil dad on Father's Day than with a dessert made just for him? A sweet treat is a great way to say "thank you" to the most important man in your life. And, since it's his day, choose one that reflects what he loves most of all - his family.
The celebration experts at Wilton have created a fun and memorable recipe just for the occasion - Dad's Perfect Family Cookies. They're sure to put a smile on Dad's face.
Start with a basic buttery sugar cookie dough; roll and cut with boy, girl, dog and cat cutters. When the cookies are baked and cooled, it's time to paint the family portrait.
Kids will love decorating cutouts in each family member's likeness - remember to decorate Dad using his favorite colors. Use Color Flow Icing - special icing that makes it easy to outline and color almost any design - to "dress" the cookies. Or for a convenient, ready-to-use option, try Cookie Icing - simply heat in the microwave and squeeze onto cookies. Add personal touches with sparkling sugars, sprinkles, and other candies for outfits, buttons and jewelry.
Use these amazing cookies as fun place cards, or serve as dessert after Dad's celebratory meal. Pour him a cold glass of milk and let him relax and enjoy his special treat.
