Fathers day cookie bouquets are fun to make. This can be an easy project to make as a gift for Dad or Grandpa. (or both if you make a lot of cookies!)
Basic things you will need are: Cookie dough (you can use the pre-made dough from the store or make it from scratch), bamboo skewers like for kabobs, ribbon, sandwich baggies, florist foam or something similar to stand the cookies up in, and a basket or container that has been weighted so your bouquet won't tip over. You can add other things if you like. Things like Easter grass or shredded paper strips to hide the foam or frosting for the cookies.
Example of a Cookie Bouquet.
Take your cookie dough and shape your cookies according to the recipe. Then insert a skewer into the bottom edge of each cookie like how a lolly-pop stick goes into a lolly-pop. Bake according to your recipe instructions.
Once they are cool, slip a sandwich baggie over each one and tie with ribbon. This will help the cookies stay fresh. Then get your basket or container with the foam secured inside. Arrange your cookies by sticking the skewer ends into the foam. Add any finishing touches you'd like.
One of these would also make a nice centerpiece for the table at the family Fathers Day get-together.
