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.

Favourite store bought cookies I find more difficult. Depends on my mood. But to choose a real Dutch cookie: I like stroopkoeken a lot. Thats a cookie with syrup in between.

I just came across your blog. Too, too cute! Great job on the cookies!

My favorite homemade cookie is a lentil chocholate chipper (Yes, there are lentils in it…it makes me not feel as bad. The recipe came from an online friend).

My favorite store bought cookie are the soft sugar cookies with a soft icing…talk about sugar high!

My favorite homemade cookie is plain ole’ oatmeal…so simple and so yummy as long as they are chewy. Never crispy!

My favorite store bought cookie is Double Stuff Oreos. I have one rule that keeps me from buying them…they have to be $2.00 or less for a pack before I buy them. They are NEVER that price…my husband found them 1 time for $2.00 and he bought me some. I put them in the freezer and ate 2 each night until they were gone!
