Are they cheeseburgers or are they cookies? You’ll have to look closely to figure it out. Learn how to make them with our simple no-bake cheeseburger cookie tutorial.
So they gave me a new “job” at church. I’m the new Cubmaster and tonight was our first pack meeting. I feel very intimidated by this new job as I know NOTHING about scouts…I have a lot to learn. Tonight I was just in charge of the food, since I don’t know much about scouts I figured I’d focus on what I do “know” which is food.
With April fools coming up I thought these mini “burgers” would be a cute idea. I started with an idea on familyfun.com but didn’t want to bake the cookies…so here is how I did it..
How to Make Cheeseburger Cookies
Buns: Sandies cookies (that’s the name brand)
Meat : Keebler Fudge Cookies
Ketchup & Mustard: just tinted frosting applied with a pastry bag to make it go faster
Lettuce: flake coconut dyed green (bake it at 200 for 10-15 min to make the food color dry on the coconut).
How to Add Sesame Seeds to the Top
To get the sesame seed to stick, mix 1 egg beaten with 1 T of water, whisk. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash on the bun tops sprinkle with sesame seeds… bake at 300 until dry. (about 10 min)
Just assemble! (put in the fridge for a ½ hr afterward to get them to set up properly).
How to Make Cake “Fried”
I was thinking you could also make “fries”. Just buy a pound cake (a good firm pound cake) cut into shapes like fries. Put under the broiler a few seconds to brown on each side. Then wrap them up in wax paper like at restaurants. Serve with strawberry jelly in a fry sauce cup! (or you could do refrigerated breadsticks cut like fries and sprinkled with sugar)
