Rose Cookies

filed under: Sugar Cookies on May 13, 2011

I just wanted to pop in and tell you that I made some cookies for the Share our Strength bakesale!


The sale will be at the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis from 11:00 to 4:00 on Saturday.


I will be stopping by with all my little ones to donate these cookies!


These are my favorite sugar cookies with crusting buttercream roses. (recipe coming soon!)

You’ve seen it a million times… and now you get to see it in pastel rainbow cookies too.

I’m sorry.  I cant help myself.


I do hope you will stop by and lend some support to the cause… maybe even say hi to the frantic lady with the screaming baby. (that would be me)

If you cant make it, at least try and make yourself some of these yummy cookies!

    Oreos are good. Yours look so much better. One cookie and lots of icing – sugar rush. And they are in color. Wow. Thanks – more pounds on my hips.

    Hi Amanda!
    Those cookies look wonderful! How do you eat something that looks so pretty? Wear it as jewelry maybe?
    Ha ha… when I read the title ‘rose cookies’ I got all excited. You see we have this snack in South India rose cookies (or achappam). My grandma used to make them at home and just the very name brings back fond memories. Here’s a link to what we call rose cookies in South India.

    Absolutely PERFECT. I have been using that issue on my cupcakes but for some silly reason I had not thought of the cookie idea. (That is why you are the smart one) 🙂

    I’m anxious for the frosting recipe as these would be perfect to accent the dessert table at my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary party in a few weeks. Do you think these would freeze well?

    I simply adore these cookies! Not only do they push my cookie button, but they also appeal to my love of all things rainbow colored. These are just amazing! I would love to know how you did them.
