Spring Flower Sugar Cookies

Martha Stewart Living, May 2009

Simple sugar cookies spring to life (and become a nice gift for Mother's Day or any other occasion) when baked on skewers and arranged in a "meadow" -- actually a flat of wheatgrass. 

You can use royal icing and any sugar-cookie dough, or use our recipe for Flower Sugar Cookies.

Cut shapes from rolled-out cookie dough. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets, placing each cookie on the tip of a wooden skewer. Gently press down. (Cookies will adhere to skewers as they bake.) Bake cookies, and let cool completely. 

Pipe a border of royal icing onto each baked cookie, using a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip. Make a large dot at the center of the flower if desired, or add several polka dots to mushroom. 

Cover remaining surface of cookie immediately with icing in a contrasting color. (If desired, let stand 10 minutes, and add smaller dots to center of each flower.) Let icing dry overnight.

    I have spent 30 minutes searching for the "Flower Power" sugar cookie as shown on page 28 of the April issue of your magazine. I must confess your website is the most difficult and frustrating to navigate/find something of any website I visit.
