The facepalm meme also inspired its own cookie cutter design by Warpzone Prints. Food blogger JustJenn took the edible facepalm one step further with tips on make Picard Facepalm Cookies with the perfect embellishments.
In her recipe, JustJenn suggests making basic vanilla sugar cookies. But instead of using colored frosting, she hand-paints the cookies using red and black food gel dye.
"It's easier than it sounds," JustJenn wrote on her blog.
Here's how to do it:
"In a small glass bowl put a few drops of red food gel dye mixed with just a touch of water," JustJenn wrote. "Using a clean, food-safe paintbrush, color in the bottom portion of Picard's shirt. In another small glass bowl put a few drops of black food gel dye mixed with a bit of water and paint the top half of the uniform black. Let the cookies dry for a few minutes, then serve."
