Ingredients

  • 16 edible flowers
  • 1 tsp meringue powder
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Press edible flowers between 2 pieces of wax paper and set a heavy book on top for at least an hour. Longer is better.
  • Carefully peel off the top layer of wax paper. Some of the petals will stick. You can try to salvage them or just use the ones that didn't stick.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon of meringue powder with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar and add a few drops of water until you have a paste. That will be your glue for the flower petals.
  • Paint a small amount of the paste on the back of the edible pressed flower and place on the cookie!
