After extensive research performed while working on the Scallop Marshmallow Cookie Sandwich I do declare with the greatest confidence the following: Giant marshmallows are much, much more delicious than their mini and regular sized counterparts. I believe it is the larger core that provides extra marshmallow squishiness- I will preform further research in the marshmallow category over the long weekend.
Now, on to the Scallop Shell cookie sandwich how to which features this delicious marshamallow as its sandwich center. While designing our SDB shell cookie cutters I could not help but admire and be inspired by the loveliness of CopperGifts seashell cookie cutter… it is beautiful, elegant and generous in size.
Note: If you would like to speed the process along, ice only one of the 2 cookie shells. Your guests technically won’t see the bottom until it is being picked up and put into their mouths. The argument for icing both layers: extra icing adds extra deliciousness, and also makes for a fair way to share this cookie- IE: pull apart, you take the top, I’ll take the bottom, we split marshmallow.
One final decorating note… We did try a few options of these scallop cookie sandwiches with eyes, but to us, it just didn’t look right. The scallop shape falls on the more elegant side of the shell cookie, so the eyes just didn’t seem to fit. That said, we do HEART the mix of these cookies together and they also look fab with our swirly shell cookie. To see how to make our cookie clams, click here.
Here’s to a lovely long weekend filled with scallop cookie sandwiches, sun & sweetness! Xo Dani
