Y'all it's been a hot minute, day, year, lifetime since I've posted. I offer no excuses or reasons or apologies. I simply offer you - some anemone cookies!

I hope it's obvious, but I'm talking about the flower version not the sea version. Well...the cookie version of the flower version. 

This suddenly feels more complicated than sugar should be. Let's just make some cookies. 

Step by step tutorial for making a royal icing anemone flower sugar cookie

How to make anemone flower decorated sugar cookies:

Step 1.

Print the dot transfer template above on a paper 8.5"x11". Place in a sheet protector or under wax paper. Pipe medium consistency black icing over 12-15 dots. Sprinkle with black sanding sugar. Let dry for at least 12 hours. Use a thin knife to remove from the sheet protector or wax paper

Step 2. 

With medium consistency green icing and a #3 tip, pipe foliage on the outside edge of the cookie. Let dry for an hour.

Step 3.

With a # 104 tip and very thick white icing, pipe 5 "C" shaped petals around the outer edge of the cookie. Pipe a second ring of "C" shaped petals just inside the first ring. Place a black icing dot in the center of the flower and gently press into the white icing. Sprinkle a small amount of black sanding sugar near the flower's center.

See it all come together in this white anemone flower cookie decorating video tutorial.
