Upsherin Scissor Cookies


Few things can compare to the excitement of a three year old as he awaits his Upsherin (at least until he sees the real scissors!) With the big “Upsherin Day” just around the corner, here is a fun and easy idea that will add to this memorable occasion.


  • Cookie dough
  • Scissor cookie cutter
  • Edible silver spray (I used the one by Chefmaster) available at baking supply stores
  • Candy melts
  1. Roll out your cookie dough. Use your scissor cookie cutter to cut out the “scissors”.
  2. Use a drinking straw to cut a hole in both scissor handles.
  3. Bake the cookies according to your recipe directions.
  4. Place cookies on a piece of parchment paper and spray the cookies with the silver spray.
  5. Melt the candy melts according to the package directions and dip the handles.
