FOOD FUN: Brownie Mortarboards

If you’d like to make a treat for a graduate, how about brownie mortarboards*?

These, from Sugar Bowl Bakery in Hayward, California, show you how to do it.

1. MAKE mini round brownies in a baba pan or cut circles with a cookie cutter from a regular pan of brownies.

2. FIND a rectangular cookie covered in chocolate. We used these, but you can bake your own shortbread or sugar cookies and dip them.

3. DECORATE with a jelly bean and a piece of licorice whip. Use a dab of chocolate frosting to afix the garnish to the cookie.

*A mortarboard is the square academic hat, or graduation cap, so named long ago because of its similarity in appearance to the plasterer’s tool used to hold mortar.



RECIPE: Graduation Cookies

Who wouldn’t want to take a bite of these diploma cookies—perfect to serve at a graduation party or to bring as a gift for the new graduate.

What’s especially nifty about these cookies is that they double as fortune cookies.

You can use the “default” set of fortunes provided in PDF format by the recipe’s creator, Land O Lakes; or you can make up your own with the graduate in mind.

Have lots of fun with this one!
