When it comes to my little one, jewelry is always a win so when she wanted to have a “sparkly jewelry party” for her 6th, I convinced her that we could put a whole new twist on that idea with a daisy party instead, using Daisy Cookie Rings as edible jewelry! They were such a hit with the kids and the adults that I just had to share this fantastic dessert idea with you all! It is one that can easily be used for birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, favors and more.
First the Cookie Dough
To start your adventure in cookie ring making, you need cookie dough of course! This recipe is inspired by the LilaLoa's recipe and its a delicious starting point that is simple to create.
1 cup salted butter ( you can use unsalted as well, just add a pinch of salt)
1 cup white sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
2 large sized eggs (17mm)
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup dark cocoa powder
2.5 - 3 cups all purpose flour
How to Make Your Flower Cookie Rings
After you have gotten your dough nice and chilled it is time to make your rings. For this part you will need your dough of course as well as a cooling rack and parchment paper (or a sil pad).
Making Cookie Rings
Chocolate cookie dough
Parchment paper or sil pad
2 circle cookie cutters - 3.5 cm and 2 cm Tip: You can use your icing tip if you have a hard time finding a small circle cutter
Piping bag, coupler and Piping tip #104 - rose tip
Preheat the oven to 375F.
5. Cut circles out with your bigger cookie cutter, leaving just a small space in between the cookies. Cut another circle inside of the big one. This makes up the “ring” part of your cookie. You will need two ring pieces and one top for each cookie. The top is the same size as the ring, just made with one cutter and no smaller hole in the center.
6. Using a small knife or a pointed spatula, remove the extra dough from around the cookies.
7. Slide the parchment paper (or sil pad) with the cookies onto the cookie sheet and bake for about 10-13 minutes. (baking time depends on the thickness of the cookies.)
Time To Make Some Icing
In order for these cookies to become beautiful and tasty daisies, they will need some icing. In my royal icing recipe it turns out white, which is a typical daisy color of course. You can always add some food coloring to create your own flowers for your special occasion. In order to assemble the rings you will definitely need the icing so here is my Royal Icing Recipe!
