Embossed Fondant Cookies for Easter
I can't tell you how much I love these cookies! Don't they look so pretty and perfect, almost like they were stamped?
Oh yeah, it's because they were!
These embossed fondant cookies are actually just cookies covered in a layer of fondant that has been stamped or rolled with an embossed/engraved rolling pin. Embossing fondant is just about as easy as rolling out cookie dough. Anyone can do it!
The gold bows on the other hand, well those were a bit trickier...I'll get to that later.
How to Make Them
Start by coloring your fondant whatever color you would like. Just add a dot of food coloring and need the fondant until it's evenly colored.
Roll the fondant out into a flat sheet that's about 1/8th of an inch thick. Then roll over it with either an embossed or engraved rolling pin,
Then cut out the fondant using the same cookie cutter that you used to cut out your cookie and affix it to the cookie by brushing some water onto the back of the fondant.
You can also use a regular old stamp! However, I recommend only using stamps that have never been inked and have been thoroughly cleaned.
And that's all it takes to make these really cute embossed fondant cookies!
Now if you want to add a little extra flair to your fondant covered cookies you can add these adorable little fondant bows that, while not as easy as tying a regular bow, are actually pretty simple to make!
I think they add a nice little touch to the embossed fondant and makes these cookies stand out even more!

Products and Recipes
Of course, I always recommend my favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe, but I would say this time it is especially important to use a cookie dough that doesn't lose it's shape when baked. When you cut out your fondant you want it to pretty much cover the cookie completely, and the easiest way to do that is to have a cookie that is pretty much the same size and shape as the cookie cutter.
