Sugar Cookie Blossoms

While searching for Spring we decided to at least bring some yummy flower blossoms into the kitchen. Just keep thinking Spring and it may happen.

You can bake up these charming flower-shape cookies with the help of one simple kitchen tool – scissors! Have the kiddos roll sugar-cookie dough balls in colored sugar, then you can use a clean pair of scissors to cut each cookie ball almost in half. Cut each half into thirds, making sure not to cut all the way through. Separate the petals, place a colorful candy in the center, and voila! You will have a touch of Spring (for a short time) with adorable cookie blossoms.

You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe. We took a short cut using Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough and baked 8  to 10 minutes at 375°.
