Basket of Spring Flowers Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

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.

Poinsettia Basket Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

At the last minute last Christmas, I made a basket cookie with a poinsettia, and decided to revisit it this year with a tutorial.

The sweet part about the time lapse is that I have acquired an even better basket weave texture mat. :)

There are two ways to achieve the basket weave effect on the cookie.

  1. Impress the weave into the cookie dough before baking
  2. Flood the cookie with glaze and use the mat once it is partially dry


To impress the dough, you'll need to initially roll the cookie dough thicker than usual, and use the rolling pin on top of the mold to impress the weave deeply into the dough.

(see photo below)

Once the dough is molded, use your rectangular cookie cutter to cut the desired shape.

After the cookie is baked and cooled, brush dry cappuccinodogwood, and caramel dusts over the cookie for a more dimensional look.

(Note: I used these lighter colors on the dark chocolate cookie.
If the regular sugar cookies are used, you will need to use different colors of dust.)

Add the first layer of the poinsettia with red glaze.
(see photo below)
Add a second layer of petals at least 30 minutes after the first.

Carefully place yellow pearls within the center of the poinsettia.


For molding partially dried glaze, outline and flood the cookie with brown glaze.

Allow the cookie to dry for 4 hours and then press the mat into the glaze.

Dry the cookie overnight.

Brush over the dried glaze with dry chocolate dust.

In the same way as above, pipe a poinsettia with red glaze over the top of the basket.
Then add the yellow pearls to the center.
