4th of July Shimmering Star and Golden Liberty Bell Sugar Cookies

If you are wondering what exciting things to bake this year for your 4th of July party, we have some phenomenal ideas for you! We are the #1 edible glitter manufacturer in the world and if you have never tried our Tinker Dust, Luster Dust, or All Natural Petal dust prepare to be amazed. We also have several 4th of July themed cookie cutters for you. In this particular blog we used the Star and Bell cookie cutters, but you will see below we have a USA Flag, Jet Airplane, and USA America Map.

Since we are also making red and blue sugar cookies, we need to color the cookie dough first. In 2 separate bowls place the cookie dough and add the All Natural Blue Petal Dust and the All Natural Red Petal Dust till the dough is the right color of blue and red. Roll your sugar cookie dough to the proper thickness and use the 2" star cookie and bell cutters to make your cutouts. Place them in the oven and bake. While the cookies are baking, place your chocolate melts in 3 separate bowls and microwave them each for 1 minute. When done microwaving, stir the melts so the chocolate is an even consistency. Add the All Natural Red Petal Dust to one bowl and All Natural Blue Petal Dust to another bowl and mix. These will take the place of standard food coloring. You will now have bowls of red, white and blue chocolate. Add the chocolate to 3 separate piping bags.

Once the cookies have cooled off it is time to create your 4th of July edible masterpieces! To apply the Jimmies sprinkles, first apply a thin layer of white chocolate so the sprinkles will stick. Using the piping bags, drizzle on the red, white, and blue chocolate in alternating stripes. To add an incredible shimmer, sprinkle on the Deep Blue Tinker Dust with a make up brush.

You can paint on the Luster Dust wet or dry. For these cookies we used Super Gold and Silver Pearl. Take a plate and pour out a small amount of the Luster Dust. Pour a few drops of liquid extract or alcohol on the Luster Dust and mix with a small paintbrush. Paint on the cookie and you will be amazed at the metallic sheen the Luster Dust creates.

Best of luck with your 4th of July confectionery masterpieces!
