Mini Hamburger (cookies)

We've been busily celebrating our Independence with good friends, good food and great fireworks... more will be posted about that later... But I had to share these adorable little hamburger cookies! Just too cute not to share. Excuse the photo quality. I am going to make these tonight to bring to another 4th party this evening.
How to make Hamburger Cookies
You will need:

Sesame seeds
Nilla wafers
Keebler Grasshopper cookies, or Girl Scout Thin Mints
Canned frostingFood coloring, red, yellow, green
Shredded coconut
In a small plastic bag add shredded coconut and green food coloring, shake until you get the color you desire to resemble shredded lettuce.

In a small bowl, mixing frosting and food coloring together until you reach the color of "special sauce" or cheese -- start out with small amounts of red and yellow to achieve a pastel orange color.
Take one Nilla wafer, apply a small amount of frosting to use as a glue, place the mint cookie on the Nilla wafer, then add small amount of frosting once again to be used as glue, top that with the lettuce, then a generous amount of "special sauce/cheese frosting" before adding thebun (Nilla Wafer) on top of that.
To get the sesame seeds to stick on to the bun, use an egg wash. Apply *egg wash on to the Nilla wafer then add sesame seeds and voila!
To make an egg wash use egg white, egg yolk or whole egg and 1 tbs. of water or milk. Mix well
and brush on to surface.

I am going to buy some little American Flags and stick them in the middle of my burgers!

Saw your comments about painted kitchen cabinets someone where else. I wanted to share my secret that has lasted for 24 years. PREP!!! I sanded the cabinets, cleaned that off, primed with oil based primer. Painted the cabinets with three coats of thinned oil paint, and light sanded (wet sandpaper) between coats. I painted the cabinet doors on sawhorses to keep paint flat. The last thinned coat, I poured on and gently smoothed the paint. The doors still look great. The cases of the cabinets get dings, easy enough to repair. It took a summer of my life. Still remember it!
