How to Make Engagement Sugar Cookies for a Bridal Shower

  • 20

My best friend of 25 years is getting married in just a few months so I had to make some engagement sugar cookies/bridal shower cookies for her.

She is semi-eloping in Hawaii so her bachelorette and bridal shower were kind of combined into one party. We had a ton of fun getting dressed up in our little black dresses, eating a fancy brunch, and sampling wine in Woodinville, Washington.

If you haven’t been able to check out Woodinville Wine Country, it’s a beautiful area in the Pacific Northwest chock full of wineries. With over 130 wineries, it is the best way to find the perfect wine for you. My favorite winery was Chateau St. Michelle, so beautiful. We had a table on the grass and enjoyed the last few days of summer sun will sipping white blends and champagne.

So without further ado, here’s the tutorial for how to make engagement ring cookies, one of the six designs I made for the set.
