It’s just one day away from Valentine’s Day and this cheesy pun lover is in heaven! You guys know how much I love a
good pun all year long. So seeing all of your Valentine cookie puns is literally giving me life right now. I practically have to tear myself away from Instagram. I love that you guys love a good cookie pun which totally makes up for the fact that the kiddos call them “mom jokes” and roll their eyes at every punny cookie I make. (Please, they secretly love it.) Although I have about a million cookie puns I want to share with you guys I wanted to take a moment to indulge in my other major cookie love, my candy corn cookie cutter, with some easy rose cookies!

- outline + flood icing in any rose color you would like
- green outline + flood icing
- sprinkles (optional)
Step 1: Outline + flood cookies in pretty rose colored royal icing.
Step 2: Let the first layer completely crust over, preferably a few hours. Next use a projector + the rose templates to trace on the rose and leaf details. This step is optional if you just want to go freehand, you do you! I’m a bit obsessive so I like to trace on the details first. A thin edible marker works great, however, I like to use a scribe and very lightly “scratch” my lines on to the cookie. This keeps my lines super subtle and I don’t have to worry about any marker lines peaking out below any less than perfect icing lines.
Step 3: Pipe on the rose lines using your rose-colored outline icing. I used a #1.5 PME tip because I love a fine line! Fill in the two petal spots for dimension using your flood icing. Add sprinkles if you would like!
Step 4: Outline and flood leaves, let crust for 15-30 minutes then add the vein lines + sprinkles on the leaves.
And just like that your easy rose cookies are done! I really love how simple these rose cookies came together, yet they are so beautiful. I won’t even pretend I wasn’t completely swooning over this color palette too and I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with. Don’t forget, as always, tag me in your treats!
