I love Spring flowers so I thought I would make a cookie inspired by Lily of the valley. They are my favorites, there is just something about those tiny bell shape flowers that really captivates me.
Last year I created a cookie template and made a cookie:
"Lily of the valley in the vase."
These cookies are very much traditional Easter cookies in parts of Europe, they are called Honey cookies, similar to gingerbread cookies. These are from 2009. I'm still learning how to pipe delicate designs like these.
Cute idea came to me after seeing a drawing of a Daffodils.
Here is what I came up with.
you never make a cookie mess
spring has arrived
another winter we survived
cookies right off the hot press
Who says that cutout cookies have to be sugar, gingerbread or chocolate only?
I found a delicious recipe for Chewy Oatmeal Cookies that fit the " healthier" profile in my book called Whole Grain Baking. I will be posting this recipe soon, stay tuned.
I wanted to make a bouquets of tulips and lily of the valley flowers, and I found the cutter just for the job among the cutters from the Wilton's Flower Making Set..
This is the Basic Flower making set for use with fondant or Gumpaste. I found them to be useful when making cookies too.
