Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Melting moments flower cookies have a light texture, pretty, and melt in your mouth! They’re perfect for spring and Easter themed desserts.

I have to say these cookies might just be the cutest thing I have ever baked! I made these cookies today with the help of my two young children. This dough is super easy to make and uses only 5 ingredients. Once the dough is formed it was time to add some colour. This is my little girls favourite part. She chose purple, so we ended up making pretty purple flowers.

Not going to lie, shaping the flowers can be tedious. Each cookie is made up of six 1/2 tsp balls of dough all individually scooped and rolled out by hand. However, all the work is worth it when you have the prettiest flower cookies to eat!

What is a Melting Moments Cookie?

This type of cookie is made with no egg and cornstarch. The cookie uses only five ingredients flour, butter, cornstarch, vanilla, and powdered sugar. The cornstarch and powdered sugar give this cookies a light and airy texture, causing the cookie literally melts in your mouth. This cookie type is an amazing option for people with egg allergies.

How to Make Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Making the Dough

Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour and cornstarch. Set aside.

In a large bowl cream butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. I mix mine for about 3 minutes. Add in the vanilla, mix well. Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix until well combined.

Take out 1/4 cup of the dough and set it aside (this will be for the centre of the flowers). In the large bowl add in your desired colour of food colouring. Start with a small amount and keep gradually adding in more colouring and mixing until you reach the colour you like.

Shaping the Flowers

Scoop out 1/2 tsp of the white dough and roll into a ball. Place them on the baking sheet 2 inches apart from one another. Do this until all the white dough is used up. You should get about 23 white dough balls. These balls will be the centre of the flowers.

Next, scoop out 1/2 tsp of the coloured dough roll into a ball. These will be the petals. Place the ball around the white dough ball, gently pressing it together. Make 5 dough petal balls for each flower. Continue adding all the dough petals onto the flowers until all the dough is used up.

Using a fork gently push it down onto each petal dough ball to create a pretty design.

Baking

Bake for 8 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown. Once baked, it is important to let them cool completely on the baking trays. The cookies are very delicate before cooling.
