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.

Gorgeous ,God gave you a special talent I love them.
Which cutter would you suggest or did you use for the purse cookies? Hoping it is something I already have.
Hi Kristin, I used a cutter that is made for this design, it looks just like this, http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-1031038/?affsrcid=Aff0001&CAWELAID=120120820000053779&cagpspn=pla

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!
Yes, allow the base icing to dry fully (4-8 hours) before adding the details.
Wow, your work is stunning! Just wondering, how long does it take you
to make such stunning biscuits?
Hi Fathima, Depending on the detail of design I’m working on, decorating cookies can take several hours, or a full day.
Hi, I love your blog! You have given me so many great ideas! What cookie cutters did you use for the purses and where did you purchase them? Thanks. Kathy
I love your blog and you are very talented. My sister will be holding a ourse party next month and I would like to try the purse cookies you made..Could you please provide me the instructions/details.
