  2. Add powdered sugar at 1/2 cup intervals so you don’t create a huge powdery mess.
  3. Stir well and cover the sugar cookies.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for an hour, then cut into individual bars.
  5. Press a flower onto the top of each bar and try to lay it as flat as possible.

Recipe Notes

As you can tell from the pictures, I created some with frosting and some without. For the ones without, you just brush a little egg wash (one egg white to two tbsp water) on the baked sugar cookie bar, press the flower to lay as flat as possible, brush with more egg wash to continue to flatten, and sprinkle with sugar. Annnnd you now have a beautiful creation that you won’t want to eat, but you totally should!

These babies will last up to a week refrigerated, although they have never lasted that long in my household… just sayin! Nom Nom
