Quick Sugar Cookies

Needing to have a 'quick snack' for the kids and their friends one day I whipped up some quick and simple flower cookies.

Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe and roll out. Using a flower shaped cookie cutter I cut out the flowers.

The trick of course is in the decorating. To make the perfect centers I used an apple corer! A 2 pc. apple corer is the metal circle with a wooden handle and a wood dowel to push through. I gently placed the metal circle on the cookie dough and dropped a bit of orange sugar into the cylinder. Wha-la! Instant quick and simple centers! Pinching a bit of yellow, pink and red sugar around the centers the cookies were ready to bake (and eat) within minutes.Print Friendly and PDF
