Wedding Cookie Recipes

I am looking for some wedding cookie recipes. My daughter is getting married out of town this summer. I was wondering if I would be able to make and ice pretty cookies ahead of time and freeze them to use as wedding favors. Would this be too difficult for someone who has not had much experience icing cookies?

I am not new to the kitchen. I have been cooking/baking for forty years. I want the favors to be nice and from the heart, but not too expensive. Any suggestions? Two hundred people have been invited to the wedding. I know that not all will come. How many favors should I make? Thank you so much. This is my first wedding. I have three daughters! - Connie

Hi Connie, To answer your first question about freezing the baked cookies ahead of time. Yes you can most definitely do this. Wrap them well so no air can get to them. I would save the decorating for a few days ahead of the event though packaging them up and decorating with ribbons.
I would like to suggest these heart shaped cookies? they are not terribly difficult to make.

One of the recipes that is super easy and could be used as a filler in a favor package. They are called Mexican Wedding cakes and are pictured above.

Here is a video with bonnet cookies. These can also be made into wedding cake cookies by stacking them one on top of the other. The Cookie Swap book is one that I recommend for ideas for cookies and is how I learned to make some of these cookies.

I would bake a variety of cookies and bag them up in clear bags with a ribbon. Maybe three cookies per bag, which means you will need 600 cookies.

Good luck, I hope this helps you out. You will be an expert by the time all three of your daughters are married. Congratulations!
