Flower Pot Cookie Greetings

I have been making versions of these cookie flower pots for years now. Last year I used Mason Jars and added critters (see them here), the year before I set flower cookies in dirt pie (see them here)… This year, I wanted my sweet niece Cecelia to help me out with these, so I simplified the process a bit. This is such a great little cookie project for kiddos to help with!

Bake your flower cookies on sticks like so.

Mix one or 2 colors of royal icing. Ice the flower solid then use candy to decorate and add color to the center.

Candy beads, nonpareils, M&Ms... so many pretty options!

Cede decorated each flower with a recipient in mind so I labeled them in drying position for her.

Smush a fig newton into the bottom of each pot...
Smush a fig newton (or Fig Newman in this case) into the bottom of a pot. Smush another on top of that one if this is one of your favorite cookies like me.

 

"Aunt Dan, don't eat all the fig newtons!"

Scoop some jellybeans into each pot...

Then add a heart candy to each pot.

We then placed the pots in the cello bags Cece will deliver these cookie pots in- that way all she and her Mom needed to do was add the flower cookie once it is dry.

Once your flower cookies are totally dry (8 hours or overnight) stick your cookie flower into the pot. The fig newtons will add support for the flower to stand up.
