Make a Cookie Bouquet

Home > Brisbane > Recipes | Craft
Published January 21st 2011
What's nicer than receiving a bunch of flowers from someone special? How about receiving a delicious, edible cookie bouquet?

If you have a shred of baking ability, you can make a cookie bouquet. You will need readymade cookie dough (or your favourite sugar cookie recipe), cookie cutters, wooden skewers, a small box, a Styrofoam block and tissue paper.

Begin by soaking the wooden skewers in a bowl of water. Next, roll out your dough to a thickness of about 3 centimetres (or one inch) and punch out shapes using the cookie cutters. Remove the skewers from the water and insert them into the cookie. Bake in a pre-heated moderate (180 degree Celcius) oven until golden brown.

You can prepare your box while the cookies are baking. Line the inside of the box with tissue paper so that half of it hangs over the top. Cut the Styrofoam block to size and nestle it inside the box. When the cookies are done, arrange the cookie 'flowers' in the Styrofoam to form a bouquet.

A cookie bouquet makes a fun and inexpensive present for anyone and they're almost as much fun to make as they are to eat.

What a great idea. I am going to make one for my daughters birthday. Where do you buy cookie cutters from?

They're a great birthday present! You'll find cookie cutters at department stores like K Mart or Myers and most supermarkets. Try specialists kitchen stores like Robins for something different than the standard hearts and stars. Good luck!
