Flower Power

Sugar Cookie Flowers

I did it. I’m sooooooo excited. I have been wanting to learn how to make homemade decorated sugar cookies since I started this website. But, I’ve been putting it off because they really intimidated me. The whole homemade dough thing. (As far as sugar cookies go, I grew up making the refrigerated Pillsbury kind. You know what I’m talking about.) Not to mention, I didn’t have a rolling pin. That’s right. Me. No rolling pin. Never owned one. Then, there’s the whole royal icing issue, in two consistencies, and making sure it doesn’t dry out. It just always seemed like too much. Then I came across the book, Cookie Craft. And, wow, everything just seemed possible. My dreams of smooth sugar-coated cookies could come true. So, I bought the book and then, went a couple of stores over to Williams-Sonoma and bought my very own rolling pin… a silicone one… look how pretty it is. (Yes, I probably overpaid, but I was in the moment and had to have one.)

Ready to roll

It worked wonderfully with some very helpful tips and tricks from the book.

Cookie Cutters

Now, I don’t really own that many cookie cutters, so I used this set of Ateco daisy cutters that I had on hand to do most of my experimenting. Thought they would be a great way to practice flowers.

Cookies Cutouts

So far, so good. Guess this might not be so hard after all.

Now, skip ahead the several bowls of icing color, squeeze bottles, sugar crystals, and toothpicks that covered my kitchen table and ta-dah… beautiful sugary flowers.

Flower Sugar Cookies

I’m really excited about how they came out. Not too shabby for my first go at it. Especially since I have a really hard time piping. Now, all you veteran cookie bakers, cut me a little slack here. I know I can improve a lot on the look of these, but, oh how much fun it will be to practice getting better. Think of all the poor cookies I’ll have to sacrifice as test subjects. Yay!!!

Flower Sugar Cookies

I also made some teddy bears with this batch. They’re so cute. I think I’m in love with them.

A Pair of Bears

And, after all that work, this is what makes it so worth while.

Ooh — I love all cookies. I think my favorites though are the ones my mom made most when I was a kid. They were a lemon-flavored drop sugar cookie. While they were still warm, she would dip them into icing that had a hint of lemon flavor. So Yummy!

My favorite store bought cookies is definitely Vienna Fingers!

congrats on mastering the sugar cookie! it’s the first cookie I learned how to make and high on my list of favorites. my mom used to make them in huge batches when I was little and my sisters and brother and I got to decorate them.

my most favorite homemade cookie is a recipe I modified from a gourmet cookbook i found in a discount bin once. It’s called a hermit and has raisins and cinnamon. I add a whole package of mixed dried fruit as well as cloves, nutmeg, vanilla and allspice and the cookies are to die for.

my favorite store bought cookies are nilla wafers.

Okay my favorite homemade would have to be a chocolate crinkle cookie. It is a Christmas tradition around here.
And I am not a big store bought cookie person, but if I had to choose, I would have to go with oreos. I love a good thick oreo shake! Yummy!

And your cookies are fantastic! I Love homemade sugar cookies. I have the best recipe with sour cream for some moistness! They are great. But I like buttercream frosting, it reminds me of my mom!

My favorite homemade cookie is chewy Molasses. The sad thing is I have no recipe for these cookies. The woman who made the best ones ever died before passing it on. So sad. I’ve seen some on the internet, just not brave enough to chance being disappointed.

My favorite store-bought cookie is Mrs. Field peanut butter from her store (the packaged ones are sadly not good in my opinion). That cookie is amazing.

Goodness, those pictures are gorgeous (as are the cookies, which helps, right?). It looks as if they were enjoyed as well! Someone just gave me some cookie cutters, but as another person afraid to decorate them…lol

My favourite homemade cookie(s) are, I have to say, my grandmother’s, and there’s a tie: her peanut-butter chip cookies and her snowball cookies. Just…wonderful. Dreamy. She never did give us her recipes…! We’ve never been able to replicate them…she must be watching from Heaven with pride though, as we try our best!

Store-bought? Don’t do that very often but sometimes I just have to have Milanos.

My favorite homemade cookie is Chocolate Chip, but NOT mine! I haven’t been able to perfect these yet!
And my favorite store bought cookie is probably Mother’s Taffy Cookies (sandwich type with white cream filling).

you did good!!! my usual process is…about a dozen look so good and cute…..then i get tired…and i line all the cookies up and just drizzle icing on them! lol.

fave homemade cookie would have to be spritz. for some reason the green ones in the shape of christmas trees taste the best during the holidays!

fave store bought are the store brand sugar cookies. they are big and round and have icing and sprinkles and they just melt in your mouth!

I am impressed :) They look excellent if you ask me. I could not make these cookies if I spend the weekend on it! And 1112 comments. How do you handle it? Have a nice day. Hanne!

My favorite cookie to make are chocolate crinkles which reminds me of Christmas. I still make them for the season using the Cookie Cookbook my mom got for a wedding present 42 years ago!

As for store bought, does Starbucks count? I can hardly resist their Molasses chew cookies. I’ve tried dozen upon dozen of attempts to mimic them and have come very close but not quite.

Thanks for all the amazing inspiring ideas you put on your blog – you’re great!
