This Mother's Day Cookie Bouquet Is Both Pretty & Tasty
These flowers won't last long – and for good reason. Try swapping out the traditional bouquet of freshly cut blooms and instead swapping in something that Mama will be able to enjoy on the porch with a tall glass of milk. Using tasty sugar cookies, royal icing, and some edible glitter, you can make Mama a bouquet of cookie flowers that she'll be able to display and enjoy. This Mother's Day Cookie Bouquet may look complicated, but, with a jar and flower-shaped cookie cutter – you'll be on your way in no time. The easy thing about this Mother's Day dessert is that you can use pre-made sugar cookie dough to simplify the baking process. We recommend using royal icing to decorate your cookies so that they'll harden with the details in tact. We also added some edible glitter to give our jar some sparkle. Whether Mama loves a pretty table display or is looking for a sweet treat on her special day, we know she'll love this thoughtful bouquet.
