Cookie Bouquet

Hi everyone,

As you can see I am new here (and new at trying to make cookies too), and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a couple of questions…

I am planning my son’s second birthday party coming up soon.

I saw some really cute cookie bouquets and wanted to try and make something similar.

Does anyone have a suggesting for a good (sugar) cookie recipe? I am looking for something that I could either roll out immediately (if that’s even possible) or something that I could leave in the fridge for a couple of days and then “try” to roll out.

Also, I see many types of frosting, but I don’t know which one will harden enough for me to be able to write on and decorate without smudging.

Any help would be greatly appreciated…

Thanks!

First of all, hello and welcome to Discusscooking! It's great to have you here.
Love the idea for the cookie bouquet for the birthday.

Martha Stewart's sugar cookie recipe is one that takes and keeps it's shape, they don't break easily, and I can always rely on them working out exactly right. Here's a link:

Thanks so much (for the welcome and the recipe).

I have a lot of recipes that I have been looking at, but since I’ve never tried them I didn’t even know where to begin.

I did look at a Martha Stewart recipe from one of her books, but I was a little concerned because it asked for 4 sticks of butter. This recipe seems pretty good.

The link even has the royal icing, which looks exactly like what I am looking for.

Thanks again.

Welcome to DC ant1. Sugar cookies are great, but I often make shortbread cookies and decorate those instead since they are more popular amongst my family and friends. To decorate I use decorator icing.
