Flower Cookies : a botanical study

When SWEETTABLESCAPES stumbled upon these Lavender cookies by Arty McGoo, we were smitten. They are simply stunning and we were dying to try and replicate them. It is only early spring and Lavender won’t be in bloom for quite some time but it was enough to inspire us and put us in the mood for some flowery cookies. Forsythia will be showing their yellow buds anytime now, Lily of the Valley and Cherry Blossoms too. These are just the perfect cookies for a Garden Party, or to celebrate a friend with a green thumb, or to bring Provence to your table…anyway you look at them, they are too cute to eat!!

Which is your favorite flower? Why don’t you make a cookie of it?
