With Mother’s Day right around the corner I thought I would leave you with a little something I’ve been experimenting with lately: Edible Flower Sugar Cookies. Yes, you can eat flowers! I know, I know.
After you let that sink in, you should know you can’t just go pick your neighbors flowers and eat them. You need the pesticide free ones. You can order them online or get some assorted edible flowers from Whole Foods at around $4 per pack. Trader Joes does not carry them. I would call ahead of time before you go, because they don’t always carry them and they aren’t always displayed. (pssst! We have to keep this a best kept secret, okay?!) I also must advise you, though you will want to buy every pack in stock, it is best to only buy for what you plan on using immediately. These flowers, like other flowers, don’t have a long shelf life.
Here today; gone tomorrow. Le sigh.
So before the beauty fades, you should get to creating!
If you’re like me and you were a little excited, but apprehensive about eating a FLOWER, for goodness sakes, you have nothing to worry about. They don’t really have a flavor. They’re simply there to be pretty and make you grin from ear to ear. For more ideas, check out:
