Edible Flower Cookies

Edible flowers are the new sprinkles in 2020. Here's how we used them to upgrade the classic sugar cookie for a more exciting holiday gift.

To Grab

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar 
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • Edible flowers (any will work, we got ours on Etsy)

 *OR if you’re short on time, grab your favorite boxed cookie mix like we did.

 

To Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar & salt. Create a well in the center, add the butter. Combine.
  3. Knead dough with hands until mixed and smooth. Cover the dough and chill for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove dough from and place dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness & cut out cookies with a 1 1/2 inch round cutter. Put on lined baking sheet. Place flowers & petals on cookies as desired & press into dough.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden.

*The edible flowers we used are: Marigold, Micro Orchid, Pansy, Nasturtium.

Food Containers

Say goodbye to mom’s old takeout containers and hello to Inka’s patent-pending InvisiSeal technology. We spent 3 years designing the last set of Food Containers you’ll ever need, for both at-home food storage and lunches on-the-go. Yep, microwavable and dishwasher-safe too.

Interview

"I almost exclusively ate very simple, traditional Chinese food… but we’d go to Carl’s Jr every Saturday. I think that's probably unique to a lot of kids who grew up in a mixed immigrant household."

Interview

"My favorite things to draw are usually breakfast related. I associate it with a kind of diner culture from the 70’s that I always wish I had been able to experience."
