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.

Vacuum Queen said...

Ooh…favorite homemade cookie is called “peanut butter surprise” and it’s basically two thin chewy chocolate layers with a sweet peanut butter filling in the middle. Always good and always has people asking me how I made them. YUM! Unfortunately, my youngest has a nut allergy, and so we haven’t made these in over 2 years. Sigh.
Best store bought cookie is the mini chessmen by Pepperidge Farms! (As a child is was “nutter butters.”) I ate an entire bag of mini chessman a couple of months ago while reading a really good book. Oh my!!!

Favorite Homemade Cookie: Would have to be Oatmeal Raisin. As a child my mother would always rave about her grandmother’s cookies. Unfortunately my great grandmother, Mamie, passed away before I could learn her secrets and create fond memories of her baking on my own. So when I first made my batch of Oatmeal Raisin cookies and my mother said they were just as good as Mamie’s it made me so happy and proud.

My favorite store bought cookies would have to be the Chocolate Mint Milanos. While Milanos are good on their own with one cookie being just slightly off center from the other, there is something even more deliciously decadent about having chocolate cookies and a mint icing inside. Heaven!

Amber said...

My favorite homemade cookies are actually sugar cookies with buttercream icing! We have a “family recipe” from an old cookbook and often get compliments when we take our cookies somewhere that they are the “best” sugar cookies. The buttercream icing isn’t as pretty as the royal icing, but it sure is delicious and creamy!

My favorite store bought cookies are probably Oreo’s, the old favorite. I also really like the Keebler Grasshopper cookies.

All this talk of cookies is making me want to bake some! :)

My favorite homemade cookie is Snicker doodles, or sugar. Both are Grandma recipes and I love them. I love to do the snickerdoodle’s becasue the taste fabulous, I have never had one that compairs. I love to eat the sugar but they take to long to make. Valentines and Christmas are about the only time I make them.

Store bought has to be OREO’s for sure. I could eat the whole bag.

Your cookies look great for a first time. I try decorated sugar cookies every once in a while but get frustrated because they don’t turn out like I envision them. I am much better at drop cookies.

My favorite homemade cookie is oatmeal chocolate chip peanut butter (sometimes with walnut).

My favorite store bought cookies are Nabisco chewy chocolate chip cookies.

Can you tell I like my chocolate chips?

What’s your favorite homemade cookie? my mom used to make chocolate chip cookies from the recipe on the back of the nestle bag, but she would only use half the chocolate chips and put in the same amount of walnuts.

What’s your favorite store-bought cookie? i’ve only ever bought otis spunkmeyer cookies, for a sale that benefited my school, so i guess it would be that (also of the chocolate chip variety).

My favorite cookie to make is a “stolen” recipe for the Girl Scout Cookie – Samoa, the one with the coconut and chocolate coated bottom..

Homemade- definitely from scratch white chocolate macadamia nut or my grandma’s sugar cookies at Christmas. We always end up covering them in every color runny powdered sugar icing we can make.

From the store: Oreos. Can’t make em the same at home. That, or does anybody remember in the late 80′s Keebler I believe made a cookie in a box that was just a chocolate chip cookie but had a blob of fudgy stuff in the middle. I loved those.

My favorite homemade cookie would be choco-nut logs that my mom and I make at Christmas.

Favorite store bought is a tie between oreos and Milano chocolate cookies (not the mint ones).

My favorite homemade cookie is my mom’s peanut butter cookies. My favorite store bought cookie is the cheap rectangular wafer cookies with the cream inside. Yum!
