Candy Flower Sugar Cookies

Jump to recipe

Ahhh, spring, my most beloved season. The thunderstorms, the 70 degree weather (I’m not a fan of sweating so I think all of you “I LOVE 90 degree weather!” people are nuts), the smell of the springtime air, and the flowers– daffodils, crocuses, and, of course, peonies are my favorite things about spring.

I figured it would be fun to whip up some candy flower sugar cookies in honor of spring.

Aren’t they pretty?

After I made these beauties, I let Owen try one. Then, I put the rest in a container and sat it on our kitchen countertop. Immediately after he finished the cookie, I could hear him in the kitchen saying “cookie … cookie … cookie”. I walked into the kitchen to see him on his tip toes, reaching for the container. He whipped around toward me and feverishly started saying and signing “more please … more please”. That’s when I discovered that teaching him to say “cookie” probably wasn’t the best idea, and that I now need to hide all future cookies in a cabinet so they’re not within eyeshot.

Like everything I make, these are very easy to execute.

I whipped up a batch of my sugar cookies, and while they were baking I configured the flowers. As soon as I took the cookies out of the oven, I pressed the M&Ms into the center of each cookie to form the flowers.
