Decorated Hibiscus Cookies
Summer is coming to an end but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye. Decorated hibiscus cookies are the perfect nod to warm summer days filled with fun in the sun.
The cutter used here is actually a sand dollar, but it makes a great hibiscus. You can find it here.
If you’re a little short on time, a four leaf clover also works well. To learn more, click here.
To make these cookies you will need:
- White 20-second icing
- Bright pink 20-second icing
- Yellow piping icing
- Course yellow sugar crystals (optional)
Begin by using 20-second icing to create a wonky white center. Notice that even when using 20-second icing, I outline before filling.Let the center set, then outline and fill the remaining portion of the flower. If you have issues with bleeding, you may need to wait longer between each step.
When the base is completely dry, use yellow icing to pipe the longer section of the stamen. I used a #3 tip.
Once that’s dry, add the tip, and sprinkle with course sugar.
Finish up with a sweet little ruffle on each petal.
Simple, sweet, and perfect for your next luau. For more hibiscus cookie ideas, check out these posts:
Soooooooooooo perfect! I love the bright summery colors! I normally hold onto summer as long as I can, but this year, I am beyond ready for cooler weather. We’ve had unusually hot days here and I am tired of sweating! No AC in Seattle… Bring on the sweaters and pumpkins 😉
I have my Bio practical test on Tuesday and we have to do an experiment with hibiscus pollen. Thanks to you, now I can think of sugar while studying for the test 🙂
