Edible Flower Cookies

image

Not only do these look beautiful but they happen to taste great too! To top it off they are very easy to make! First you need a sugar cookie recipe (I tried making these gluten free as well and found that the cookie was a tad too crumbly).

Materials

Sugar Cookie Dough

Edible Flowers (after searching high and low I found some at The Harvest Wagon)

1 egg beaten

Paint Brush (used for food only)

Directions

After you’ve made your sugar cookies you want to put them in the oven for about three quarters of the time the recipe suggests. Once they’ve come out of the oven and cooled down a bit you will need to beat your egg in a small bowl with a fork. Then using your paint brush you want to coat your cookie with a bit of egg. Then place a flower on top of the cookie and brush it with some more egg to get the flower to lay “somewhat flat”. Sprinkle with a bit of sugar and voila! Put them back in the oven for the remainder time but do keep an eye on them. If the flowers burn they will turn brown and won’t be soooo purtty!
