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.

My FAVORITE homemade cookie is my pizza cookie. You basically make a giant (I guess you can make mini pizzas too) circle cookie and bake it. Then you ice it with a VERY thin layer of red icing then freeze it. Then you ice the cookie with plain white frosting. Decorate with candy that look like pizza toppings and you’re done. It’s great for kids (when you don’t have to watch them) and they look great, especially after you slice them into little pizza slices.

My favorite homemade cookie is Lemon Bonbons. They are these tiny lemon cookies you form into balls with a flat bottom and then cover with layer upon layer of glaze. Then pipe decorations on top when dry. Very time consuming but worth it.

My favorite store bought is mint milano cookies.

Favorite homemade cookie is cornflake/grassroots cookies, cooked or raw.

My favorite storebought cookie is really a three-way tie between Samoas, Uh-oh Oreos, and Kroger brand cranberry oatmeal cookies (the kind you bring home and bake), especially the old recipe. The oatmeal is something you ought to be able to make at home by the hundreds, but I can’t find a recipe that quite makes the cranberry oatmeal right.

Homemade – oatmeal chocolate chip loaded with walnuts or pecans. (And truly, it’s the dough that I love the best. It is definitely better than than baked cookies.

Store bought – Oreos hands down. The originals, not double stuffed. I can eat the whole package in one sitting without blinking an eye. Of course, I’ll also drink a quart of milk to wash it all down.

My favorite homemade cookie is the good old fashion chocolate chip cookies. It reminds me of coming home from school, and smelling that delicious aroma of those delectuble little bite size cookies!

My favorite store bought are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from a bakery called great harvest. They taste homemade!

My favorite homemade cookies are no-bake cookies. ^__^ Sometimes I’ll eat ‘em for breakfast!

My favorite store-bought cookie has to be Oreos, hands-down.

What’s your favorite homemade cookie?
Rolled sugar cookies. Without a doubt. I love making them and I love eating them (I don’t, however, love the extra 5lbs I gain every time my Fiancé talks me into making them). I make them every year with the kids in my family and it’s so much fun to decorate them!

What’s your favorite store-bought cookie?
I am guilty of LOVING the Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookies that come in the tube. I usually end up baking only half of the tube, because I eat the other half raw! :-P
