Easy Rose Cookies {Piped}

Easy rose cookies recipe, homemade with simple ingredients. These piped cookies are crispy, rich and buttery and perfect for Summer.

These cookies were very popular back in the day, especially during the holidays. They have this elegant, vintage feel to them that I just love. I used a slightly modified version of a recipe I found at Betty Crocker’s site and put my own Summer vibe on this yummy treat. A few of my other favorite flower-themed cookies include these Pizzelle Cookies, Tulip cookies, and Flower Cookies. Also, if you are fond of piping, be sure to check out these Piped Butter Cookies.

Variations for piped rose cookies without mould

Use rose flavor– This will match the floral design. The flavor is achieved through rose syrup or rose water or rose extract. It’s strong. Please use sparingly.

Can use other freeze dried fruit powders– Such as strawberry, pineapple, or mango. It is simply freeze dried fruit crushed into powder form, but it adds an intense flavor and some color, too. 

Use various zests- From lemon, lime, oranges, grapefruits.

Use different flavorings- Try lemon, lime, almond, maple, or another of your favorites.

Use natural food coloring- Instead of the gel or liquid food coloring. These are typically made from fruits and vegetables but the shades are not as vibrant, in my opinion.

Try different piping techniques- You can use different tip numbers to make new flowers or try new shapes and combinations to make them all your own look.

Dip in melted chocolate– Once cookies cool, dip them halfway in melted white chocolate or dark chocolate. You can even toss some sprinkles for a pop of color.

Make cookie sandwiches– Spread frosting or jam between two cookies.

Tips and techniques

Put them in a fancy box– And wrap a nice ribbon around it and voila- a beautiful homemade gift! Check out my post on Food and Cookie Packaging Ideas.

Do not chill the dough– Because this makes it difficult to pipe the rose and spiral designs. However, you must chill the dough once it has been piped. This prevents the cookies from spreading too much during baking and holds its beautiful floral shape.

Use parchment paper to line tray- Because this will make for easier cleanup, less mess, and help prevent cookies from sticking to the pan.

Enjoy cooled- These cookies are best eaten after they have cooled to room temperature.

Use unsalted butter- Because otherwise your cookies will bee too salty and we want that more sweet flavor to shine through!
