Wedding Cookie Favors Recipe:

  • 2.25 cups flour
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

MIx together sugar and flour. Combine the egg, butter and vanilla extract. Slowly add the flower mixture to the wet mixture bit by bit until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 5 hours. (Overnight is easier)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease pans with crisco or line them with parchment paper.

Lightly flour your kitchen table or other large work surface and roll the dough 1/4 inch thick and cut out with cutters. Carefully transfer the shapes with a spatula to the cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Leave cookies on sheet for another 5 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack or just on some paper towels to cool completely before icing.

You can use store bought icing and decorating icing pens for your wedding cookie favors or you can make your own and color it with food coloring which is cheaper. The base icing on the above cookies was homemade, but the red lines were from a gel decorating pen.

Icing Recipe

  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • food coloring, sprinkles, candy, etc

Mix sugar and water/vanilla extract together to form a paste and add food coloring drops to color. Also consider using sprinkles and candy to decorate! Gel decorating pens are a great way to get clean designs and you could even monogram your cookies with initials easily.

Place your cookies in cellophane bags, paper bags, small tins or boxes. Colored cellophane can be purchased, cut in squares and simply tied around the cookies with a ribbon.

Have fun baking up some delicious cookies!
