Purse Cookies

A little while back a friend asked me to make some cookies for her daughter’s 13th birthday.  The birthday party was going to include a trip to the mall with the birthday girl and a dozen or so friends.  I thought purse cookies could be a perfect favor for the fashion conscious group.  I made each one a little different.  These are my favorites from the bunch.  If they were real purses, my favorite would be the turquoise and black one in the bottom row… which one would you chose? 
I’ve posted my Sugar Cookie Recipe HERE
and I’ve posted several cookie decorating tutorials, including HERE and HERE.

    • Hi Fathima, Depending on the detail of design I’m working on, decorating cookies can take several hours, or a full day.

  35. These are fantastic! I would to try making these…you’ve inspired me to give cookie decorating another go! :) Are the details on the purses applied after the flooding dries (like the stitching and the lines)? Thx!

  36. Which cutter would you suggest or did you use for the purse cookies? Hoping it is something I already have.
