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.

Thanks for all of your tips, ideas and recipes. You and your website are terrific!

What beautiful cookies Bakerella! My favorite homemade cookies is from the recipe on the back of the Tollhouse milk chocolate chip bag, but using the bag of Andes mint chips instead. And, instead of making them into actual cookies, I put it all in a round silicon pan and make a cookie pie out of it!! DELICIOUS!!~
Favorite store bought….. the pre-sliced Reese’s pieces cookies, or or Soft-Batch chocolate chip! I must go buy some now!!!

Ingrid said...

Hi,
First, your cookies came out GREAT!!!! Are you kidding? They look better than most! I’ve been afraid to give these a try as well.

Okay, now for the questions. My favorite homemade cookie is chocolate chip, a little undercooked so that it stays nice and soft even after it’s cooled enough to eat and don’t forget the HUGE glass of icy cold milk. No dunking please! I don’t eat pre-packaged cookies though I will use them in other desserts.

Homemade – my mom’s shortbread cookies with chocolate chips that she only makes at Christmas. They are so yummy. :)

Storebought – probably those maple flavoured cookies that look like maple leaves. They were a rare treat, as a child, because, unlike most other cookies, there was not a no-name option to ahve instead, so my mom hardly bought the maple ones, because they were so much more money than no name cookies.

Um those look like some really yummy cookies. Bakery worthy even!! My favorite homemade cookie is peanut butter with the hershy kiss. As for store bought it would have to be sugar cookies. I like just slicing them off. I am not a big fan of the rolling pin.

My favorite homemade cookies are chocolate chip cookies, of course!

For my favorite store bought cookies: I’m not exactly sure what the name of them is, but they’re in a pink box with the word wedding in it. Danish wedding cookies, maybe? Oh, they’re so good! But I don’t ever get them because I eat the whole box if I do!
