How to use Rose Cookies

These cookies are super versatile and can pretty much be used and displayed in so many different ways.  You can place them on a simple white plate, like I did. You can also fill up over sized mason jars with them for some easy on-the-go type cookies. 

They also make great party favors in little baggies.  Just place one or two into a bag and tie with some ribbon.  Easy peasy.

Rose Cookie Tutorial: STEP by STEP

Alright, let’s take a look at how to make these fun little cookies.


Step 1:

For the sugar cookie base, you can honestly use any recipe.  However, I highly recommend my basic cut out sugar recipe. It is super great for keeping it’s shape and tastes delicious.  Once you choose a recipe, you can start by prepping the dough.

You will want to use a pretty liberal amount of flour on the surface you are cutting and even a little extra in the dough itself.  

Roll out dough until it about ¼ inch thick. Using the rose shaped cookie cutter, cut the cookies and place on parchment covered cookie sheets.  Bake according to the recipe.  

Allow cookies to completely cool prior to decorating.  I typically like to bake the cookies the day before so they are nice a cool for decorating.


Step 2:

Start with the green fondant.  Roll it out to 1/8 inch thick.  Using the same rose  shaped cookie cutter you used for the cookies, cut out the leaves for each cookie. 

I will use the cookie cutter and then come back with the round side and trim off the “flower” portion.   Then I will reincorporate that fondant back into the green to roll out for more cookies if needed.

Set aside to start drying out an hardening. 


Step 3:

Next, roll out the red fondant the same way.  Cut out one rose per cookie, again by using the round side to cut off the leaves. 

Set aside to start drying out an hardening. 


Step 4:

Once the fondant is hardened, use a little bit of frosting to adhere the fondant to the sugar cookies.  With the Gel icing, make leaf marks on the green and the Swirly Rose pattern on the Red.  Easy peasy and ready to enjoy!
