- Basic Sugar Cookies Recipe
- Small, round candies
- Pink food coloring
Roll room-temperature dough (for a blush hue, add 1 or 2 drops of pink food coloring) into 1-inch balls.
Cut 6 evenly spaced radial slits in each, about three-quarters of the way to the center.
Press a finger into the centers to spread out the petals, then drop a candy in each indentation.
Before baking, refrigerate on a parchment-lined baking sheet until firm. Bake according to the recipe.
