Pot of Gold Cookie Bouquet

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, so I thought I would celebrate by making another cookie bouquet with a Pot of Gold theme this time.  Looking back now, I wish I had placed some gold chocolate coins or something funky in there with the cookies…meh, next time!

I used a Sugar Cookie recipe and it made enough to bake 2 batches of Cookie Bouquets. Because I was working on an Easter Bouquet too, this worked out well, but feel free to make a half recipe if you don’t want leftovers.

Also, 1 batch of Royal Icing was plenty!

The only cookie cutter I had was for the rainbow/shooting star. For the other cookies, I made my own stencils out of parchment paper and tracedcut out the cookies myself. **Tip: It’s important to refrigerate your dough before rolling it out. Keeping the cookies cool before baking them will ensure that they keep their shape while they bake. While I have one sheet of cookies baking in the oven, I like to prepare the next one and pop it in the fridge to chill the cookie dough cut-outs until needed.

Happy St Patty Day!

Football Cookie Bouquet

I’m not a fan of football. I don’t watch it on tv or attend games. I also had no idea what teams were playing in the Super Bowl this year so I had to google it. 

BUT…I had just purchased a box of cookie cutters and these cute little football ones were included. Since this weekend is the Super Bowl, here’s my tasty contribution.  Enjoy!

Cookie Flower Bouquet

  This is my first attempt at making a cookie bouquet so please pardon me if the cookies look amateur. 

I’m looking forward to making cookie bouquets for all of the seasons and holidays coming up!

  • I picked up these adorable cookie cutters today from Michaels Crafts. I had the treat sticks in my cupboard already.

  • If the cookie dough breaks, gently patch it up using another flat piece of dough. The icing will cover up any flaws later on.

  • I made this Royal Icing Recipe.  **Remember to keep the bowl covered when it’s not being used.

  • Use a #3 tip and a piping bag to outline the cookies with whatever colour you choose. When you’re ready to fill the center of the cookies, scoop some icing in a small bowl, add any colours you desire, then add a few drops of water until it’s thinned down & runny.

Enjoy!
