Add Dimension to Your Spring Cookies

Now that spring has sprung, it is time to prepare for all of those spring occasions that sneak up on us. Whether you're preparing for Easter, Mother's Day, confirmation, or graduation, you usually have some sort of cookies made up to compliment your feast. This year, add a new dimension to your cookies by creating 3D layers. It's fun and easy you won't believe the reaction you get!

  • Start with your favorite sugar cookie recipe or our sugar cookie mix.

  • Choose the cookie cutters that you would like to use (larger ones work best) according to the occasion. If you are unable to locate the perfect cutter because your cookie idea is pretty unique (...and the unique ideas are usually the best!), do not give up. We have a "Make Your Own Cookie Cutter Kit" that is easy to use. It has all the special tools and materials needed to make your own cutters plus a suggestion book.

  • Bake your cookies and let cool.

  • Dip each cookie in white or chocolate coating. This will give your cookie an added bit of flavor. You can use colored summer coating also. Let the coating dry at room temperature.

  • Using royal icing and the decorating tips of your choice (depending on what you wish to do) begin decorating your cookies.

  • Add candies, such as jelly beans, chocolate eggs wrapped in foil, edible glitter, dragees or sprinkles to your icing when it is still wet to give your cookie dimension.

  • Allow the icing to dry thoroughly before you put cookies away.

  • Arrange your cookies on a tray when it's party time and watch your guests' faces light up when they see how beautifully creative your cookies are!
