Flower Sugar Cookies Recipe
Ingredients to Make Flower Sugar Cookies
12 of your favorite sugar cookies, cut them into 1.5-inch circles.
¼ cup of softened unsalted butter
1-2 tablespoons of milk
1 cup of confectioners’ sugar
3 oz. of green fondant
2 drops of red gel food coloring
Recipe yields 12 decorated flower sugar cookies
How to Make Flower Sugar Cookies
First, make sure that your cookies are cooled off before you begin decorating.
Next move on to decorating. The best part of these flower cookies is the pretty pink buttercream frosting.
To make the frosting, start by beating the confectioners’ sugar, softened butter, and milk together on a medium setting then increase the speed to high once the ingredients begin to blend together.
Once those 3 ingredients are blended well, add the drops of red food coloring into the buttercream and continue beating until it is completely pink.
The frosting is finished as soon as it is smooth and forms semi-stiff peaks.
Next to start decorating the flower top cookies, scoop the buttercream frosting into a piping bag that has a star tip. Then start in the center of each cookie and frost in a circular motion.
Next, to create the leaves, start by rolling 12 small balls out of the fondant and 12 more that are a little smaller, then flatten them out slightly and shape a point into one end of each of them.
Then use a toothpick to create the leaf design. Score little lines on each piece of green fondant which will give them a more textured and realistic appearance. Finish your flower design off by placing two leaves, one of each size, on each of the sugar cookies.
Now you have a dozen gorgeous rose sugar cookies to serve up for everyone to enjoy!
