Pink Pastry boxes filled with homemade sugar cookies
These are extremely easy to make. You can buy the pink boxes on etsy and the doily and gingham ribbon at any craft store.
I have been making these since I was 16 years old. They are always a hit and are absolutely beautiful. They do take lots of practice and can be time consuming. Definitely worth every minute! My favorite shape is the heart and this is the most easily found cookie cutter.Can be bought online here cookie cutters or at most houseware stores.
Recipe for the sugar cookie that I use is from Martha Stewart but any cut out sugar cookie with royal icing is fine.
