With this awesome basketweave mold, it's fairly easy to make basket cookies just in time to "fill" them with spring flowers.
Place the mold face down over sugar cookie dough.
Using a rolling pin over the top of the mold, impress the dough with basketweave.
Take the cutter of your choice (I chose a tall rectangle) to cut out the cookie.
Feel free to leave the top portion of the cookie smooth for adding flowers. (see photo below)
Bake and cool the cookies as normal.
Cut out flowers using mini cookie cutters. I like to make the dough fairly thin so the flowers are not too overpowering on top of the basket cookie. Decorate these beauties as desired.
Brush chestnut dust over the basketweave portion of the molded cookies.
Add a greenery background on top of the basket by outlining and flooding it with green glaze.
Adhere the flowers on top of the basket with more green glaze. Add additional flowers and vines as desired.
