Circle sugar cookie with red frosting and white candies made to look like a flower

Go to the store and grab some plain cookies or dough and some frosting. Then go to The Decorated Cookie Blog to see how I pumped out about a dozen of these Easy Winter Flower Cookies in 10 minutes. It’s Christmas Eve and you have 47 presents to wrap, the in-laws are coming for dinner, you have to go to the post office to buy 3 more stamps, and you still want to make cookies. I’ve got you covered (on the cookie part at least). Since I spent the month hosting some of my favorite bloggers and their cookies I started to think I might forget how to write a blog post so I took over Meaghan’s site for a day.

4 steps to making a sugar cookie look like a flower by dragging drops of frosting toward the center


1. Pipe dots of buttercream around the edge of a circle cookie.

2. Use the tip of a spoon to drag the dots toward the center.

3. Repeat.

4. Place white nonpareils in the center.

That’s it, folks! You can use this technique on any cookie that you like. I even used it on plain store-bought cookies here. You can find my favorite Best Sugar Cookie recipe and my Best Christmas Cookie Frosting.

I hope you find a way to bring somebody joy today. When in doubt add sprinkles. Sprinkles make everyone smile. We’re finishing up a whole month of cookies every day. I hope you enjoyed I’ll Bring the Cookies as much as I did!

Have you seen this Be a Good Cookie Spatula from OXO hanging around lately? Last year, the OXO “Good Cookie” Spatula helped raise over $250,000 for pediatric cancer research as part of their partnership with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for pediatric cancer research. It was started by two OXO employees, Gretchen and Larry Witt, who lost their little boy, Liam, to pediatric cancer. It’s not too late to order a Good Cookie Spatula and support a great cause; plus every time you look at it you can’t help but smile!

Some friends and I get together every year to exchange cookies, bake, and decorate together. There’s always lots of laughter and lots and lots of calories. This year was our biggest exchange yet with over 63 DOZEN!
