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.

I use this tip pretty often, most recently to create these.

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

    That is the coolest cookie cutter ever!!! I want to come over and look through all the cutters you have accumulated and marvel at them! I can only imagine how many you have from before I started “collecting” that are no longer available! This one is gorgeous, but the one you made with the leave is just as nice!
    Such a pretty palette too! I am looking forward to more bright colors for the next few months!
