Thank you! I really want to give these a try.

Amanda, I have never laid my eyes on cookies and cakes more lovely than yours!
Thanks for letting us know what tip size you use. I'm wondering if you've ever considered making a quick tutorial video, though. Your directions say "start in the middle and make a swoop once around". I did that and it looks like someone pooped onto my cookies...LOL! I think there must be a trick to the timing/speed of the swoop. I'm just not getting it :(


That is a beautiful, simple cookie. Thanks!

So beautiful!!

I need to give this technique a try,you have the best ideas!!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

Those cookies are too beautiful to eat!

Thank you, thank you! I want to make these for the dessert table for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary party in 3 weeks. Do you think you could freeze them for a couple weeks? I will be making my trial batch this weekend to get the rose technique down.

Gorgeous! :) Bekah wants to make these but I'm sure they won't be as pretty! :)

Quick question about the recipe - in ingredient list you state 3 whole eggs and in the directions you say 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks. Which do you use for these?

Sooo CUTE!


I love everything about theses cookies!


Love these beautiful little nibblers!


Question: Would the frosting work if I used butter? There's just something about shortening that creeps me out. Or maybe you could make a case for shortening?

so pretty -


So pretty Amanda. Missed you bunches this weekend...
It is funny how some cookies taste better & better with a few days tacked on.


What a perfect little treat for spring! And as my father used to say: how about a little cookie with your frosting?
You are a woman after my own heart, Amanda!


So,so Pretty! You do awesome work!


Oooh, I recognize these cookies. ;)


Flawless execution, as always! Thank you so much for sharing yourself with all of us.


This will be a good way for me to practice the roses so I can try to tackle the beautiful rose cake for my daughters birthday!


Such beautiful cookies. Love the assortment of colors, your baking, your blog, your photography, need I say more? Simply gorgeous. Thank you ever so much for your generosity.

OK, really? Cookies last 4 days in your house?? I can't even imagine. Your self control amazes me. LOL

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

I like how perfectly the sugar cookies hold their shape at the edges. One of these days I'm going to have to try to make the rose icing. Piping always makes me nervous, but I think I might be able to handle a cookie!


i can't wait to try these! loved making the rose cake...i bet these will be just as fun! thanks for sharing!

Fiona Trapani

mmm they look lovely. Have you tried a drop or two of rosewater in the icing? So very pretty.


Gorgeous as always! Am a little confused about the glaze though, you just use your frosting recipe as a glaze over the whole top?


thank you ..thank you ..thank you ...a million times !!!!

So pretty love ur cookies recipe

Hi amanda.
I'm a very new blogger =) and I adore your creations =) and also try them.
I made your white cake recipe and favorite buttercream recipe. Tastes are turned to delicious. But they were really sweet especially buttercream. and you can feel sugar particules in your mouth although i've used powdered sugar. i thought the amount of the sugar too much.
if you have a suggestion about it that would be really nice.
Thank alot.


the urban baker

perfectly beautiful as always, Amanda....you are one talented cookie!


Mady these last night and they were beautiful!!


Gorgeous gorgeous! I posted a link on Edible Crafts :) (and if you get this comment 10 times, apologies, my computer is acting wonky)


I love your blog despite the fact that you are killing my weight loss efforts! ha ha. These cookies are a great eddition to the rose cake! A friend of mine is making my wedding cake using the rose technique you thought us. I have been scrambling to try and find a favor to hand out…a hah these cookies! Perfect. Thank you so much for all your creativity, inspiration and simply for sharing. I hope that little baby is doing well.


Amanda sei fantastica, passare da te è come essere nel Paese delle Meraviglie!
Un abbraccio

I finally have a 1M tip - these and the rose cake are going to turn out SO much better now! :D


This reminded me of a sugar drop cookie that we used to eat when we were a kid here in Asia. Yours are absolutely gorgeous!

Hi Amanda -- awesome cookies. When you say you need 3 days to let the icing dry right... do the cookies stay out or in a covered container?


Absolutely adorable! :) simple, classic definitely fun to make!
