Floral Cookies

I saw these at Stone Gable Blog and had to try them myself.

FLORAL SHORTBREAD COOKIES


1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter,
room temp
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 egg white
2 tablespoons water
Pesticide free Pansies or violas

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix together the flour, sugar, butter and vanilla until formed into a ball. Place between 2 sheets of wax paper and roll out until 1/4 inch (or a bit thinner) thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until tops are slightly browned and center is done.

Wash and pat dry the flowers. Mix together the egg white and water. Put a little of the egg wash on baked cookie, then place flower, and brush the top with more egg wash. Repeat until all are done. Place back into the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes or until egg wash looks dry on top of cookies. If the flowers curl, just pat them back down, carefully, with your finger.

Remove from oven and let them completely cool on wire rack.
