Cookie Bracelets!

by Michelle on May 17, 2010

A few weeks ago I was on Joumana’s blog, Taste of Beirut, and she had made the most adorable cookies. I knew immediately when I saw them I just had to give them a try. There were so cute and I knew my nieces would just love them! How wonderful to have some jewelry that you could eat! And you could make the jewelry for any special occasion such as St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween or even a birthday party by just changing the decorative sprinkles.

I knew that a sugar cookie dough would be perfect for the Cookie Bracelets and I needed a recipe that did not rise during baking. Luckily a few years ago I test baked all the sugar cookie recipes I had in my 3″by5″ handwritten recipe box, just to see exactly what I had. Good thing I take notes when I’m testing recipes, because I knew exactly which recipe would work!

Sugar Cookie #1

1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Confections, nonpareils and dragrees

1. Place butter in mixer and beat until light and fluffy and add vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and powdered sugar. Slowly add the flour and sugar to the butter, mixing on low.
3. With all the flour and sugar added, if the dough doesn’t completely come together, so you will need to finish it off by hand with a little kneading.
4. Form the dough into a ball and then into a disk shape. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Don’t over chill or else the dough will crumble and you will need to warm it by kneading.
5. Take a piece of cookie dough about the size of a golf ball and roll it into a snake about 12-14″ long. I made my bracelets large but you can make them smaller if you’d like but do make sure that the finished bracelet is large enough to fit over the hand!
6. On a piece of parchment paper, spinkle about 1/4 c of confections. Roll the cookie rope in the confections completely covering all sides. Carefully coil the rope, and pick it up with a wide spatula and move it to a parchment lined baking sheet.
7. Pinch the ends together forming a complete circle. There’s room for about 6 cookie bracelets per baking sheet.
8. Bake at 350 degrees for about 18-20 minutes. I baked my cookies until they were a nice golden brown to give the Cookie Bracelet a little bit more color. And they were wonderfully delicious!

    Michelle, how will I keep the sprinkles out of my laptop keyboard? We need to think of these issues here.

    Boy, those look wonderful, Michelle!

    For some reason, your blog is not registering on my blogger roll. I can’t figure it out. I am a follower, and my bird shows up over on your followers list. I used to have this come up every day! I’m going to try to re-enter this info and see if I can get it to read on my blog reader. I hate missing what you’re doing!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  • Sheila May 21, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    Okay, NOW it appears I’m hooked up again. I put the new web address in the reader. I hope it works!

    XO,

    Sheila … who might be following you twice! :-)
