Sugar Cookie Necklaces

Sugar Cookie Necklaces

I’m always looking for two things: Fun things to bake with my 2 year old daughter, Daphne, and fun crafts to do with her.

This awesome idea for sugar cookie necklaces combined the two perfectly.

I made Lofthouse Style Sugar Cookies today, and used the scraps of the sugar cookie dough to do this with Daphne.

Sugar cookie dough, egg washed, sprinkled, skewered, baked, and then strung on a necklace.  Way safer for a two year old than a candy necklace.

And such a fun Valentine’s Day craft to do with your kids.  Have fun!

You will need:
Sugar Cookie Dough (I used my recipe for Lofthouse Sugar Cookies) but store bought would be fine, if you like that.
Sprinkles for decoration
Egg wash (1 egg + 2 tbsp of water, whisked together)
String
Small heart shaped cookie cutter
Skewer for making small holes.

Directions:
Make your sugar cookie dough and refrigerate it according to instructions.

Generously flour a board and roll out your cookie dough.  Cut it out into lots of tiny little hearts.

Using a skewer, poke a hole in the corner of each heart.

Brush each cookie with eggwash, and decorate with sprinkles.

Bake according to sugar cookie recipe (or package) instructions but BAKE FOR LESS TIME.  The egg wash will brown these cookies really fast, I recommend checking them after about 3 minutes and keeping a really close eye on them until they are lightly browned.

When they come out of the oven, while they are still warm, use your skewer to re-poke the holes, since the dough will puff up while it is cooking.

Allow the cookies to cool COMPLETELY on the cookie sheet, and then lace through string to make necklaces.

Enjoy!
