Semi-Homemade Zelda Triforce Cookies


Check out this super simple tutorial for these tasty nerdy treats!

My office likes to decorate cubicles for Birthdays. However, my department likes to go beyond the simple balloons and streamers. Even going so far as building a fort out of paper boxes and their lids. It was decided that the most recent Birthday was going to incorporate the new fad of Post-it wall art. And since we knew the girl was into The Legend of Zelda, it wasn’t difficult to decide on Link as the centerpiece.

I cannot take credit for the creation of the Post-it wall art, which can be seen further down in this post, but I did whip together some pretty sweet (literally!) triforce cookies, which didn’t end up taking all night to do.

1. Ingredients.
> Package of pre-made sugar cookies (already cut into squares)
> Can of yellow point and shoot icing

3. Place triangle cookies onto cookie sheet and flatten a little.
(Note: If you don’t flatten, the cookies will have trouble holding the triangle shape while they bake.)

4. Bake cookies according to sugar cookie package. Shorten the recommended time by a few minutes due to the flattening of the cookie. And then allow cookies to cool.

6. Next, fill in the 3 triangles on each cookie with icing.
(I went with a zig-zag design to conserve on icing, just to make sure there was enough to cover each cookie.)

The Story So Far. . .
  • One-Quest was founded many millennia ago in a galaxy know as "n00b," by a foundation of Nerds. n00b was a small galaxy ruled by an evil empire, known as the "Hipstars." One-Quest formed with the sole purpose of removing the Hipstar empire from power, and restoring balance to all Nerds...
