Flower Cookies

On Thursday it was my 18th birthday! It has been a wonderful week filled with lots off different celebrations.  On Tuesday I went to the beach with family friends, on Wednesday my family and I went to a French restaurant, and on Thursday I went clubbing for the first time with my friends! I recieved a lot of Paris themed presents and cooking themed presents; which is so lovely and I'm really grateful for.  Among them, was this new cookie tray my mother bought me.  It was a tray with 12 flower-shaped indents. I was really intriguied to see if the flower shape would work well. So today, I've taken a slow day of baking and resting (in light of last nights adventure) in order to test out this tray.  In the end, the cookies turned out really beautiful and the details showed up well.  I used a vanilla butter biscuit recipe (found here) and covered them with a glaze; the recipe for which is below.

Ingredients for Glaze
half of 1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
1-2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method
Place icing sugar in bowl.  Add liquid ingredients.  Using a whisk, stir together until smooth.  Place a cooling rack over your sink.  Dip cookies in the glaze and them put them on the tray.  I like to put it over the sink as it's less messy.  Chill in fridge before serving.

  1. The cookies look awesome and I can see why you like France so much, when I was in Paris I could not get over the amazing food on offer from the high end restaurants to the tiny bakeries with all of their pastries and baguettes spilling out onto the street, ahh I want to go back!
    Take care..
