What’s better than spring and sugar cookies? How about some adorable Spring Plant Sugar Cookies! Here’s how you can make your own!
I love springtime for all of the plants and flowers that begin to emerge from the ground and start blooming. As much as I enjoy outdoor flower gardening, indoor plants are not my fave! I love them, but I can’t keep them alive.
I wanted to create something unique and different for you when it comes to sugar cookies and that’s when the Spring Plant Sugar Cookies came to life!
In a stand mixer combine sugar and meringue powder. Add 8 tablespoons of water, using the whisk attachment, beat for 1 minute on low. Continue to add water one tablespoon at a time until the icing slowly drizzles from the whisk when lifted.
Once prepared – if the icing is too hard, add more water one drop at a time. Too runny, add more icing sugar one teaspoon at a time.
Separate the icing into small mixing bowls and add desired food coloring. Mix well. Scoop the icing into piping bags or icing bottles.
Combine dough and flour. Roll to ¼” thickness. Cut out cookie shapes. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
Line around the edge of the design with icing and fill the middle. Use a toothpick to poke bubbles or direct icing into holes.
Allow each design area to dry before moving on. The icing should completely dry, at room temperature for at least four hours, before adding piping details to the top.
Once your icing is hard and dry, you can draw your plants. These were very simple designs that you can recreate just by copying what I did!
Have fun with these!
I think these are absolutely adorable! Get some pre-made for the kids and grandkids to decorate this spring.
