You know what makes me happy? An easy sugar cookie recipe. And flowers. (And chocolate, wine, music, and a whole list of other things. Shh. I’m trying to make a point here!)

Learn how to make these beautiful flower sugar cookies!

I didn’t really learn how to bake as a kid. I have fuzzy memories about whether or not I was allowed to help in the kitchen. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why I struggle with how to include my own children in cooking and baking. I’m doing it though!

It’s taken time for me to move beyond pre-packaged cookie mix to feeling confident baking a recipe from scratch. Sure, I still use mixes sometimes, but I like showing my kids how to measure out each ingredient. There’s a sense of satisfaction when I bake homemade cookies. I continue to experiment with recipes as I teach myself AND my kids.

One cookie recipe everyone should have in their back pocket is a good, easy sugar cookie recipe. Don’t you agree? Once you have a basic recipe you love and can whip up in a flash, it’s easier to branch out. Tweak this, change that. Substitute this, add more of that.

Plus, sugar cookies are like a cookie playground. There are so many ways you can decorate them! My daughter loves to help roll out the dough and press a cookie cutter into it. We both enjoy cookie decorating too, which is what makes this Juju Flower Sugar Cookie recipe so fun.

How to Decorate Juju Flower Sugar Cookies:

Use candy in creative ways to decorate sugar cookies!

1. Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper and set aside.
2. Cut each sour straw in half lengthwise. Cut each piece into 6 pieces. You will have 48 pieces total for the flower stems.
3. In a double boiler, add the pink chocolate chips and stir occasionally until melted. If you do not have a double boiler, you can melt the chocolate in 15 to 20 second increments in the microwave. Be sure to stir each time.

4. Pour the melted pink chocolate into a shallow bowl and dip the front of each cookie into the chocolate. Place them on the cookie sheets.

Note: You may want to dip only a couple cookies at a time to ensure you have enough time to decorate them before the chocolate hardens. As you get into a routine and can quickly add the candy pieces, you may dip more cookies in preparation.
