Simple Rose Monogram Cookies

From time to time I get on cookie kicks.  Lately it’s monograms.

Perfect monogram cookies are easy to make.  Since I went projectorless for the last two rounds, I thought it was time for a Kopykake version.  As I’ve mentioned before, a Kopykake won’t change your skill level overnight but with practice it will allow you to achieve a consistent results in less time than other methods.

Floral Monogram CookiesTo create monogram cookies with a Kopykake I always begin with a bit of research.  Rather than sifting through fonts, I prefer to Google specific letters.  For example, in this case, I searched for, “letter S”.  Once I found what I had in mind, I resized and printed the image.  Since the printed image was a similar to the color of the cookie base I used a black permanent marker to create a more visible outline.

To make these cookies you will need:

Outline and flood the cookies with orange icing and let dry overnight.  Once the base is dry insert the prepared image into the projector and center the letter on the cookie. For more help with using a Kopykake projector, click here.

Begin by using pink icing to add the base of the rose and let partially dry.
