Large Blue Flower Cookies Directions:

Makes 1 large cookie
Prep Time: 20 minutes + chill time 1 hour
Bake Time: 8-10 minutes

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 3⁄4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 1⁄2 tsp baking soda
  • 1⁄2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 tsp almond extract

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 4 tsp milk
  • 2 tsp light corn syrup
  • 1⁄4 tsp almond extract
  • blue food color
  • non-pariels or other candy decorations (I went with tiny white non-parielsand larger turquoise non-pariels)

Additional items:

  • stand or hand mixer
  • 1 round cookie cutter
  • 1 large flower petal cookie cutter
  • frosting piping tool or bag

Instructions:

1. Cream together confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla, almond, and egg.

2. Blend in flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda until thoroughly combined.

3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

4. Roll dough on floured board to 1/8” thick.

5. Center the round cookie cutter on your rolled dough and continue to place the large petal cutter around the circle to get the correct number of petals cut out.

6. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or just golden.

Icing Instructions:

1. To prepare the icing, combine confectioners sugar, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. *Tip: to create a nice piped edge on the cookie, separate 2 heaping tbsp of icing into a small bowl and add 1 tbsp of confectioners sugar. This will create a thicker icing.

2. Scoop this icing into a piping bag with a small hole cut in the bottom. Pipe your edge around the center cookie and each petal. This will prevent the colored icing from pooling and dripping over the edge.With the remaining icing, add food coloring to desired tint. *Tip: to create different color icings for your cooking, separate into small bowls before adding food color.

2. Spoon a small amount of frosting onto cookie and carefully spread to border edge. *Tip: use a toothpick to work the icing toward the edge. Work quickly, the icing dries and hardens fast. Sprinkle non-pariels on asap so they will stick.
