Super easy Mason Jar Sugar Cookies with icing will bring a smile to any southern’s face! Love mason jars? These cookies are for you!
I’ve often thought to myself, “Self, why do you post cakes and decorated cookies on your blog when you’re not a professional cake or cookie maker?”
There were many times over the past few year where I didn’t want to post things because they were just from a “home cook” that liked to practice on cakes and cookies for her family.
However, you know what, I get a lot of praise about the cakes and cookies I make, people seem to love them so I’ll keep making them.
I might now be a professional with TV show worthy cakes but that’s ok! I want to post cookies and cakes that I make, mainly because I want everyone to know that everyone and anyone can make sweet desserts like this.
Yes, sugar cookies like these mason jars might seem intimidating, but they’re super easy!
I made these mason jar sugar cookies for my brother and future sister in law’s wedding shower and now I’ve got the recipe for you!
I’m going to link to a few YouTube videos that might help you out too since I didn’t really take any process shots. I’ve also got some links for y’all on where I bough the mason jar cookie cutter as well as the edible silver shimmer!
That’s right, these mason jar cookies have a simmering silver dust on the lids!
I bought my silver luster dust at Hobby Lobby but you can also find it on here on amazon. Now with the luster dust, DON’T mix it with water! You need to mix it in a shallow dish with a few drops of drinking alcohol or extract. I used this Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract because that’s what I had in my pantry; vanilla extract would be good too! Once you mix it into a “paint”, you’ll just use a clean paint brush to brush it on wherever you want silver shimmer. I used it on the lids of these mason jar sugar cookies.
You’re also going to need this cute little mason jar cookie cutter. I bought mine from LMCreativeDesigns on Etsy!
So while I was decorating cookies long before I knew who Bridget from Bake at 350F was, I just LOVE her tutorials! Since I didn’t do step by step photos, I did a quick search on Bridget’s site and thankfully she’s got one on her blog! So if you need a visual for how to pipe the cookies, check out her post here.
