Easter Bonnet Cookies

We went to a baby shower on Saturday, and this is what I brought. They were excellent! Now, I can't cook, and I was able to make these, so anybody can!

Easter Bonnet Cookies


1 package (18 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 box (16 oz) confectioners' sugar, sifted
6 tablespoons water
2 (aff) tablespoons meringue powder
Food coloring
12 large marshmallows
Pastel flower shaped candy decors

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 24 round cookies according to the package directions. Place cookies on baking sheets. Bake cookies until golden brown (8 – 10 minutes). Cool on wire racks placed over waxed paper.

-In a medium bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, water, and meringue powder. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Divide glaze among several small bowls; tint with food coloring.

-Cut marshmallows in half horizontally. Place a marshmallow half cut side down in the center of each cookie. Spoon glaze over each cookie coating the marshmallow and cookie evenly. Let dry.

Once dry, you can decorate the hats. The recipe I had for this had my making icing which I am just not good enough to do. I cheated and bought gel icing to decorate. DO NOT DO THIS. The gel never dries. The next time I will buy the regular icing to decorate with. With these hats, you can be as creative as you want. For St. Patrick's Day, you can use the whole marshmallow and green glaze to make top hat cookies or use whole marshmallows and chocolate glaze to make pilgrims hats for Thanksgiving!

  1. I'm loving the idea that these could be dcorated for any holiday. I may try them soon – without the gel icing – I use it sometimes, too and am almost always disappointed! Mahalo for submitting to the Postie Crnival!

  2. Sooo cute! I'm in the "not talented" category when it comes to anything having to do with decorating. But these look like fun to make! I'm sure my daughter won't care how they look as long we make them together.

    Great recipe and possibly new Easter tradition at our house!
