Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • 1 (1-pound) bag sugar cookie dough mix
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • Royal Icing:
  • 1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 1/2 cup water
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe. Cookies:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Follow cookie dough mix package directions, adding butter and egg. Roll out dough and cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters or a knife. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove to a rack and cool completely.

  • Icing:

  • In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix all ingredients until smooth. Spread icing over cooled cookies with spatula. Dry for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

  • To decorate, use edible markers to stencil or freehand desired design. You can also tint the icing with food coloring and pipe it on the cookie. Either way, allow to set for 4 to 6 hours.

  • To assemble, first decorate a flower pot to your liking. Glue floral foam inside the pot. Place each cookie on a cleaned long wooden popsicle stick and arrange in a bouquet fashion. Add hard candies around the bottom of the bouquet pot, if desired.
