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.

Thumbs Up

Cookie Craft

My favorite homeade cookie is definitely the peanut butter cookie! My mom used to make them extra nutty and soft with Jiff and chocolate sprinkles…… I dream of them!

My favorite store-bought cookie is and has always been the Circus Animal Cookie! I love the frosting and sprinkles, I could eat the whole bag in one sitting.

September 26, 2008 03:09 AM
Erin @ Sprouted said...

Yes. Those are very pretty cookies, and I hear you on the royal icing conundrum. Have you done something on using a press? I haven’t used one yet (nor do I own one), but I want to…on both. I don’t do sugar cookies often because of the labor–lots of time for just a small amount of cookies, when I usually want to give several away at a time.

My favorite homemade cookie: gingersnaps and my whole-wheat oatmeal-chocolate chip.

Favorite store-bought: Huh. I don’t know when I last had or bought a store-made/had cookie, so this is actually a good question…oh, something Pepperidge Farm. Probably the Piroulines or Pirouettes, because they’re so elegant, and because they have frosting-like filling. I would love to learn to make something like that.

September 26, 2008 03:19 AM
Erin @ Sprouted said...

Ack! I didn’t leave contact information.

Grazie! Here’s hoping I get a beautiful new cookbook!

September 26, 2008 03:20 AM
Rico said...

Ok. It’s my first visit and my first comment. My wife actually showed me your site because she liked the book and wanted me to buy her one too. :(
And since your giving one away, though I’m pretty sure I have no luck in raffles, I thought of giving it a shot. So here goes.

My favorite homemade cookies are fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies baked by my wife, still warm and delicious!

My favorite store-bought cookies have to be those milano cookies from Pepperidge Farms. Cheap and delicious!

Anyway, if possible, my wife wants to ask if its possible to have the recipe for sugar cookies. She’s too shy to ask herself. That’s it!

Amy-Sue and Gian Del Bello said...

By far my favorite homemade cookie is a sugar cookie with frosting and candy corn on top! ummmmmm

My Favorite Homemade cookie is Chocolate Chip Oatmeal (no raisins) But it looks like it might be the sugar cookie after I can get brave like you did! It looks hard to me but looks very tasty!

My favorite store bought is Pepperidge Farm Brussels Mint. Or more traditional, Oreos. I wonder if you could make Oreo’s? Now that would be brave. ;o)

I SO need this book. I have bags of cookie cutters, and I keep buying more, but I am SCARED to death to use them. I remember from being a kid the long, boring days of rolling and cutting with my mom, only to slap on icing and dunk the cookies in a bowl filled with sprinkles. Not pretty at all….Please Please Please let me win this book!!!

My favorite homemade cookie is the classic sugar cookie with icing. Even though I am a fine cook there are 2 things I struggle with that would be sugar cookies and jello. My hubby says my rolls, dinners, desserts and such are all great but I really struggle in the sugar cookie area. I guess it’s a good thing or else I would eat them everyday if I could. So you see I REALLY need this book so my hubby doesn’t have to make me my favoriet cookies anymore. (really he’s in charge when it comes to the little morsels of suggary goodness)
My favorite store bought cookies would be pumpkin chocolate chip from Macey’s grocery in Utah. Mmmm almost as good as a yummy sugar cookie coated in frosting!!

My favorite homemade cookies are pretty much a tie between rolled sugar cookies and oreo cookies using a cake mix with cream cheese frosting (not crunchy like store bought but soft and moist. They are hard to keep around.

My favorite store bought cookies is an apricot peach newton (I can’t remember the name and can’t find them anywhere either). Nabisco makes a version also. I think Western Family was the only brand I could find but no one carries them anymore. ;o{

my favourite home made cookie has to be a simple chocolate chip cookie……very easy to make but also sometimes very tricky!! When you bite a chocolate chip…’s just heaven!!

My favourite store bought cookie is Pan di Stelle by Mulino Bianco an italian brand. It is a chocolate and cocoa cookie with sugar stars on it. The best way to have it is in a cold winter night with a huge mug of milk and cocoa….when you dip the Pan di Stelle it become soft and wet and it relish all its flavors!! Fantastic.
