Dr. Seuss Cookies

Sharing is caring!

Quick and easy cookies to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday! 
(and this is going to be a quick and easy post because I’m tired.)
For these super simple cookies, you need small sugar cookies, red fruit roll-ups, marshmallows and some icing.  I cheated and used a bag sugar cookie mix.  I got exactly 36 out of it and I think they were the perfect size!  For my fruit roll-ups, I cut them into about 12 strips each.
Then you just roll the fruit roll-up strips around your marshmallow and it will stick to itself.  
A front and back beauty shot of this lovely…


Then you just ice that cookie and place your “hat” on top!
I also made some easy cupcakes with some free printable toppers that I found online, but I absolutely cannot find the link to the printables anywhere (which means that I looked for 2.4 seconds and then my eyes started crossing, so I gave up), so I’m not going to share them here since I can’t link back to the source.  If I happen to find it again, I’ll share the cupcakes then. You know, when it won’t really matter because his birthday is long gone.  It’s how I roll.

Please take note that I used Yertle the Turtle for my backdrop since this is 
A Turtle’s Life for Me.  This book was one of my “turtle gifts” from my 
MamaTurtle for Christmas right before my first son was born! Love!  


“And the turtles, of course… all the turtles are free. 
As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.” 
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! and thank you!
