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.

I think my favorite cookies are a tie between double-stuf oreos and the monster cookies that (sadly) are no longer made in town. They were these huge sugar cookies, crumbly and sweet, with a yummy buttercream-type (with maybe cream cheese?) frosting, topped with nonpariels. YUM!

homemade: snickerdoodles! I’m always surprised how their simplicity wows me every time!

store bought: Danish butter cookies!
and for some reason the pretzel shaped ones with the sugar “salt” taste the best (i know i know, they are all the same.)

I think I have a thing for butter/sugar type cookies.

Honestly, I don’t really like store bought cookies – especially since homemade ones are SO much better. However, there is a small business here on Long Island in New York that makes excellent sugar cookies as well as a tasty whole wheat version.

With homemade cookies, you can never go wrong with chocolate chip.

Hmm – I think it’s a toss up for my favorite homemade cookie between warm chewy gingesnaps and frosted sugar cookies – a must at Christmas time. And Oreos definately for my favorite store bought cookie. I think my love for Oreos comes from my childhood – we always wanted to buy them but my Mom didn’t give in very often.

I LOVE homemade chocolate chocolate chip cookies with homemade vanilla ice cream! SO GOOD.
Store bought/premade cookies that I can never get enough of are the Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies they sell every year!

My favorite homemade cookie is plain ole sugar cookies – they’re so much fun to decorate!

My favorite store-bought cookie is Trader Joe’s triple ginger snaps.

Those are adorable (and make me want to get into the kitchen!!)

My favorite homemade cookie is a shortbread cookie that I adapted from a Hearst Castle cookbook. I think my favorite store bought cooke (today anyway) is Keebler Fudge Stripes.

Sigh… now I need cookies. ;-)
