I received this beautiful book for my birthday last year. The desserts are intricate and inspirational. For my first attempt at dessert art, I decided to make some cookies. Heather suggests displaying them on a cone covered in buttercream. I decided to just stick them together with the icing and eat them up.
I like to use a number 50 scoop to shape my cookies. It also works well for mini cupcakes. On a second attempt at these beauties, I used the same scoop then cut the dough into quarters to make tiny, fairy cookies (as one friend called them).
For this recipe, the sugar cookie dough is rolled into a ball then rolled in sugar.
Once baked, the cookies flatten on one side and become crumbly and sweet. They actually melt in your mouth.
I squished them together with some buttercream and more sprinkles, because...sprinkles.
This is my happy.
