Decorate Your Cookies With Fresh Flowers

Martha Stewart Weddings shows these pretty cookies perfect for a sweet table or for wedding favors.  Head to her site to find out how to make these cookies that look like your baker or caterer made them but that you can make at home.  But where do you get the edible flowers?  Try Sid Wainer and Son.  They have mixed pansies and mixed blossoms to let you choose which you prefer.  You can also add these blooms to your salads or use them to garnish your plates.  I love a plate that when it's served is a feast for my eyes and my palate.
