Today we are meeting some friends for a picnic in a local rose garden (yes, we are going crazy for roses!), so I wanted to make a special treat.
I fell in love with these adorable Easter egg sugar cookies I saw on Pinterest and was inspired to adapt her recipe to make – you guessed it! – rose cookies. I was so happy with how they came out, in terms of looks and taste, and my Monkey tester approved as well! (Little Monkey was more interested in smashing it to bits in his high chair, but perhaps I offered it too close to his nap time!)
These are super easy to make, and you will feel like a rock star!
Follow her easy recipe (I followed a suggestion from ALLterNATIVE learning and substituted coconut oil for some of the butter – it added a wonderfully light coconut flavor!), but make your coils shorter and pinch the tops to make a gentle peak. Coil them into circles to make the rose shapes – easy and so pretty!
Bake as per her instructions, let cool, and enjoy!
