• These look like a lot of fun. I will keep this recipe in mind for grandchildren. 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, They are. It’s like an edible play-dough for kids. They can make all kinds of fun stuff with this. 🙂

  • Wendy Merron

    Hi Susan,
    How long will these cookies last and look good? We are having a large cookie table for our wedding and I think these will look beautiful 🙂

    • Hi Wendy, The cookie dough can be made well in advance and will freeze very nicely. The baked decorated cookies will last just a few days. They never stay around long when I make them so I have never tested the that. You may be able to make them, freeze them, then bring them out of the day of the wedding. I have done that with success with other cookies of this type. 🙂

  • Oh these look so great! I have not used fondant before but it is on my list to try. Pinning these for the future endeavor!

    • Hi There and welcome, They are and they’re tasty too. Enjoy and when you try them let me know how they turned out. 🙂

  • I had never heard of fondant until today, but it looks fun to make, especially since you referred to it as edible play-dough.

    • Hi Jeri, It’s the coolest stuff. You can do all kinds of stuff with it. It is awesome for confection decorations. Give it a whorl. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Ok, it’s confession time. I had no idea what fondant was. I’d heard the term, I’ve seen it, I’ve probably eaten it, but didn’t have clue what it was or how it was made. I’ve now pinned it to my Pinterest account, in two spots and if anyone asks… I’m going to pretend like I always had a clue. Thanks!!

    • Hi Debra, LOL,, I love it! I am so glad I could be of service. Oh, and I’ll never tell. 😀

  • Kelly Wade

    I never knew it was pretty simple to make fondant, cool! These cookies would work for a variety of parties as well and are perfect for spring/summer. Thanks!

    • Hi Kelly, it really is pretty easy. I love this cookie recipe because of it versatility. Have fun with this. 🙂

  • Michael Belk

    Susan, those are some nice looking cookies. You are a regular Martha Stewart. I bet they taste good.

    I have never heard of fondant cookies, but they sure look good.

    • Hi Michael. They taste really, really good. I can’t keep them in the house… LOL. I amy not be Martha Stewart, but I sure like having fun with food. 🙂

  • Julie

    This is so cool. I never knew how to make fondant. i am really happy to have these recipes. Yea!

    • That’s awesome Julie. More things to have fun in the kitchen with. 🙂

  • Jessica Fedorko

    I love finding new recipes! These look so yummy, and you got them to look so clean with the fondant. This looks like it tastes much better than the traditional fondant as well.

    • Hi Jessica, These fondants, hands down, are better the store bought. I really have fun making them and they keep for a very long time. 🙂

  • Karen Koblan

    Awesome! I have never made fondant before. I am going to try the marshmallow recipe. Looks really good! I have always wanted to try out covering a cake in fondant too.

    • Cool Karen. These are fun to make. I love the versatility of fondant when decorating and kind of confection. Enjoy. 🙂

  • HB

    Oh Yum! I am going to try these for sure.

    • Hi HB, Which one would you try? Whichever you try, have fun with it. 🙂

  • I would need to play with this recipe a bit. We only use butter or oils. Crisco tends to hold far to many chemicals for us. The butter would give it a touch more flavor (crisco is neutral) for the normal version.

    • I hadn’t thought of that Jon. If you use unsalted butter the ratios would be the same. For salted butter I would reduce the salt by 1/4 tsp. The butter would give it bit more flavor for sure. Let me know who it goes if you give it a try. 🙂

  • What bloody great recipes they sound pretty easy to do now if only I had someone to bake them for…………..lol

    • Hey there Jo-Anne, I get that, but how about just for yourself? You certainly deserve a nice sweet ever now and then. 🙂

  • Along Came Mary

    I LOVE how fancy these are, yet are pretty easy to make! & gluten free, no? I think I will try this 😉

    • Hi Mary, The fondant is but you would need to modify the cookie recipe to make it gluten free. So have fun with this and show me how it turns out. 🙂

  • What a cute idea. Sounds delicious too:-)

    • It really is a fun thing to make and to eat Catarina. Give it a try. 🙂

  • These look delicious. I like Mark Bittman, too. His recipes appear in the New York Times and, of course, I have his cookbook “How to Cook Everthing.” Cookies look delicious!

    • Thanks Jeannette, Mark Bittman is my go to chef when I’m stuck on the best approach for a recipe. I love that book and I think we have all the book he’s published… LOL

  • Carissa

    Thanks for sharing! I love making desserts, but I’m always too scared to try to work with fondant, especially because it is so expensive. I will definitely try this!

    • Then you will enjoy these recipes Carissa. They inexpensive, taste great and fun to make a great match in my mind. 🙂

  • Those look so pretty it would almost be a shame to eat them! I’ve heard you can make fondant yourself but didn’t realize it was relatively straightforward. I’m sure it tasted way better than the store-bought variety! And that butter cookie recipe is a little too tempting : ))

    • Hi Krystyna, They may be pretty but there are even better to eat. The cookie is really the star. The fondant really adds the icing to the whole experience. Enjoy. 🙂

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    I have never made fondant before but it looks like fun. Almost like playing with playdoh but you can eat it. The kids would love it!

    • Hi Krystle, You will love this and the kids will have a blast making stuff with it too. Then they/you get to eat it. 🙂
