This Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquet is a fun mother’s day treat & craft all in one. It would make a great & tasty gift for a Grandma!
My kids loved making this cookie bouquet and we even made some butterfly cookies to go in the bouquet too. I was so pleased with how these cookies turned out! I wanted to try these out early because I plan on making them with my kids at Sunday School and letting them take home a small little bouquet of cookies to their moms.
Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquet
What you need:
– sugar cookie dough
– skewers (you may want to cut off the pointed end)
– powdered sugar
– food coloring
– paint brushes
First, mix up sugar cookie. You can use your favorite recipe or a cookie mix. You may need to add a little flour to make them easier to roll out. Use a flower cookie cutter. Bake cookies according to your recipe.
Let cookies cool completely.
Take thick frosting, I used store bought, and spread a layer on the back of one of the cookies. Lay a skewer on top of the frosting and then spread a thick layer of frosting over the skewer. Press another cookie onto the frosting. Let sit until set or overnight if possible.
Measure about a cup of powdered sugar in a small bowl and add a teaspoon of milk at a time until thin enough to spread but not runny. Add food coloring. Repeat until you have as many colors as you want.
Let your kids paint the cookies with paintbrushes (you may want new ones or ones you just use for the kitchen). My kids had a blast painting this cookies. You can paint both sides if you let the one side dry completely and then lay the painted side on wax paper while you paint the reverse side.
I stuck several of the cookies in a vase with some leftover easter grass and it was our centerpiece on our table for quite awhile and of course we eat a bunch of them too.
