Transcript:Jewelry Cookies

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, especially a birthday girl. These jewelry inspired cookies will add a fun and tasty treat for the celebration.

Supplies for Jewelry Cookies

To make the cookies, you will need:
  • chilled sugar cookie dough
  • shaped cookie cutters
  • vanilla frosting
  • assortment of colorful tube icing
  • assortment of sanding sugar and sprinkles

Prepare the Cookies

It is best to use a simple cookie recipe, such as sugar cookies. You can buy the dough ready made, or make it yourself the morning of the party. This is the kind of dough that is all ready shaped into cookie size pieces.

Preheat the oven according to the cookie recipe, mine says 350 degrees. Take out the dough, place it between two pieces of wax paper, and flatten it using a rolling pin. Peel off the wax paper and make your shapes.

Create Shapes for the Cookies

You can make star, heart, and circle shaped cookies with the cutters. You can also roll the dough into a long, snake-shaped piece, and leave a spot for the star or heart jewel in the center. we ll attach them later.

Bake the Cookies

Bake cookies for about 5-7 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Then, place them on racks to cool.

Frost the Cookies

You can choose to frost the cookies ahead of time, or allow your guests to frost and decorate their own.

Decorate with Sugar and Icing

Place some vanilla frosting on the jewels, and then decorate them with the colored icing, sprinkles or the sugar. You can draw an outline of the stars and heart, and be as creative and colorful as you'd like.

This is a creative and tasty way to sweeten up the party. Thanks for watching, to learn more visit us on the web at food.about.com.
