Flower Cookies With Leaves

It’s amazing how a single detail can completely change the look of a cookie.  Adding simple leaves to flower cookies transforms an otherwise common cutter into something special.

I own exactly one flower cutter with leaves and people often ask about it.  I purchased it few years ago at Michaels and unfortunately I haven’t seen them since.  Luckily, even without the cutter this cookie is super easy to make.

Flower Cookie Cutter with Leaves

All you need is a flower and simple leaf cutters like these.

Leaf Cookie Cutters

Start with a flower cookie, use the cutters to create a place for the new leaf, cut a separate leaf cookie, then gently put the cookie in place.

You can position the leaves anywhere and add as many as you like!

To help create even outlines be sure to make a light impression on the cookie with your cutter before baking.

Without leaves, these cookies might’ve been a mess.  Now they’re  beautiful mess.

    I totally agree with you that small details can change the look of a cookie alot. Actually I think I learned that from you, Callye! You are the queen off “little touches” that make cookies stand out. Just a touch of color or texture takes a cookie design to a whole new level! I’m still working on thinking outside the box when it comes to these add-ons.

    I bought the fondant leaves cutter set and tried your tips. My tulip cookies look more compete with a leaf added. I also added a bigger leaf to a daisy/sunflower cookie. I used your tip with the leaf cutter to cut some of the dough from the daisy/sunflower cookie and it worked perfectly. Thank you for the tutorial. Now I can get more creative with my flowers!
