Who doesn’t like a cookie? Till this day, I could not find anyone who doesn’t like them.
We loved the chocolate chips cookies and the ones decorated with icing.
To celebrate the premiere of Nickelodeon’s brand-new kids animated series, SANTIAGO OF THE SEAS, on October 9, Ryan and I decided to bake a easy to cute cookies and decorate them with icing.
2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
We also got it the pirate themed cookie cutters on Amazon. You can also find the at any arts and crafts store.
For the icing, we went simple and used the ones “ready to use” that you buy at the supermarket.
About the series
Infused with a Spanish-language and Latino-Caribbean culture curriculum, the action-adventure series (20 episodes) follows 8-year-old Santiago “Santi” Montes, a brave and kind-hearted pirate, as he embarks on daring rescues, searches for treasures and keeps the high seas safe in a fantastical Caribbean world. Following the U.S. launch, SANTIAGO OF THE SEAS will roll out on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels internationally.
In the series, Santiago’s (Kevin Chacon) steadfast and loyal crew consists of: Tomás (Justice Quiroz), his clumsy energetic cousin whose magical guitar can be used to harness the wind; and Lorelai (Alyssa Cheatham), a knowledgeable mermaid who can speak to sea creatures and transform into a young human girl. Together, Santi and his best mates sail the seas on the majestic ship El Bravo, using their smarts, pirate skills and moral compasses to guard their home of Isla Encanto from villains like the nefarious pirate Bonnie Bones (Kyndra Sanchez) and her Palm Crow sidekick Sir Butterscotch (John Leguizamo).
In the SANTIAGO OF THE SEAS series premiere, “The Legend of Capitán Calavera,” Santiago and his friends become the new pirate protectors of Isla Encanto after discovering the lost treasure of the legendary Capitán Calavera.
SANTIAGO OF THE SEAS is created by Niki López, Leslie Valdes and Valerie Walsh Valdes. Valdes and Walsh Valdes (Dora the Explorer) serve as executive producers with López co-executive producing. SANTIAGO OF THE SEAS is produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., with production overseen by Eryk Casemiro, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Preschool.
