Sugar Cookies with Edible Frosting Rounds

December 7, 2015, In: Christmas, Cookies

These sugar cookies are no ordinary sugar cookies! Ok… so they started out as ordinary sugar cookies, but then I discovered you can have your design printed on edible frosting and that changed everything!

To be honest, I was a little worried they’d be hard to work with. I haven’t done a lot of frosting lately and I don’t have much confidence in my skills right now. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was!!

I ordered my edible frosting rounds from Zazzle. You can design your own, or purchase the ones I designed here:

The frosting rounds come on a sheet and are sealed in plastic. I didn’t use them right away but they stayed nice and fresh. I thought they’d be difficult to get off the sheet, but that wasn’t a problem at all either. I cut the sheet into strips and then just rolled it over the edge of my counter top. The frosting round popped right off.

I used the royal icing recipe below and when I placed the frosting round on top it blended right in. I sprinkled the entire cookie with Wilton white sparkling sugar to give them a snow flake feel.

I used Katrina’s sugar cookie recipe and I think they really are the best sugar cookies ever! My icing recipe is below. You won’t need to use much… about a tablespoon. Spread a circle in the middle, place your frosting round and then let it spread to the edges. Dust with sprinkles if you’d like.

Sugar Cookies with Editable Frosting Rounds


  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Whisk together sugar and milk until smooth. Stir in corn syrup and almond extract.

Curious if anyone has tried edible frosting before and what their experience was. Let me know how it went!

Salute, Denise

    Cute cute – good idea when you know you might not have time for party prep but want it to look really good (assuming of course you thought far enough ahead to order then! 😉 )

      Thanks Alayna. That’s so true… I’m certainly one of those people that runs out of time when it’s go time and I’m always looking for ways to make things easier.
