Snacks for VBS – Part 1 – Clamshell Cookies

As you all know, I do the church coffee cart every Sunday. Everyone at church knows I love to cook and love to feed people. So it is only natural that I help out with the snacks for the VBS or Vacation Bible School that will be running this week.. Lacy, the pre-school and early childhood facilitator, came up with all these fun ideas for the VBS, and I am the creator of the goodies.

Our theme this year is “Under the Sea“. Here are all my ingredients I get to work with.

My first batch of goodies are now done. I will start on the next batch in just a bit. Round one – Complete – 200 Clamshell cookies.

These are super easy to make and are made with vanilla wafers, colored frosting and sweet tarts.

Each clamshell requires 2 cookies and 1 sweet tart as the “pearl” inside. Frost one cookie (rounded part down, then add a sweet tart in the center.

Add a little frosting on the bottom of the second cookie and stand it up on the edge of the first cookie to make the clam.

This is the first round, with two more to go. So, that being said, I need to get back in the kitchen again, to start Round 2. This is just a brief breather in between rounds. 🙂

Stay cool, stay safe, stay well and carry on. ‘Til next time.
