Recipe of sorts

Wow, so I got requests for the "recipe" for those burger cookies on here, on facebook, at work and from V's friends at school!
It's pretty easy people, here goes:

Nilla wafers for the buns
Thin mint cookies for the burger - I used the Keebler kind because they are bumpier and look more like meat
left over dyed green coconut from Easter  ;-)
red and yellow icing.  Buy it at the grocery store, the stuff they have out now for sugar cookies works good because it dries kind of shiny.
Stick a mint cookie to the bottom of one Nilla wafer with some icing,
put this Nilla side down, then squeeze some red and yellow icing on to the edges of the mint cookie
put some icing on the bottom of another Nilla wafer (I used some green icing left over from St Patricks day for this part) and smoosh it in the green coconut,
then smoosh it on top of the mint cookie to make some of the yellow and red icing run down the side.
Viola! burger cookies.
You could set up a good assembly line if you have helpers!

These sound decadently cute and incredibly easy to make - sound like fun to make for one of the kids' class parties. Thanks!

That sounds so much easier than the recipe that I have that has you baking a yellow cake in muffin top tins sprinkled with sesame seeds, & baking brownings, that you then squish into burger shapes....
