Fourth-of-July Fairy Cookies

PREP 25 Min / COOK 10 Min

Ingredients:

  • Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store bought)*
  • Rolling pin
  • Flour
  • Wax paper
  • 2 flower-shaped fondant cutters, one about 1-1/2-inch wide and another about 3/4-inch wide
  • Baking sheets
  • Spatula
  • Cooling rack
  • White cookie icing
  • Fondant (red and blue)
  • Powdered sugar
  • White sugar pearls (found in the baking aisle of the grocery or craft store) or similar-looking small white candies

Helpful Tip: *Note: If the store-bought brand of cookie dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes while baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it prior to rolling it out.

Directions:

  1.  Working on a flour-dusted sheet of wax paper, roll out the cookie dough to a 3/8-inch thickness. Use the larger of the two fondant cutters to cut out a bunch of flower shapes from the dough. Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
  2.  Roll out both of the fondant colors separately between sheets of wax paper. Use the smaller fondant cutter to cut out an equal number of red and blue flower centers so that, in total, you have enough for all the cookies.
  3.  Gently press a sugar pearl partway into the fondant in the center of each of the red and blue flowers.
  4.  Working with one cookie at a time, frost the surface with white icing. Then gently press a fondant flower partway into the icing at the center of the cookie. Let the icing set up before serving.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
