Mother’s Day is the official occasion to show the mother figure in your life how much you appreciate her and all that she does for the family. It is a day to make an extra-special effort to recognize your mother’s role in your life. Most mothers will agree that they would prefer an opportunity to connect with their children and spend time with the family on this special day versus expensive gifts. However, no matter how old you are, a homemade gift is a way to show how much you care. Make simple mom cookies to celebrate the mother figure in your life. Hint, hint from two moms: mothers love gifts from the heart!

Steps to make simple mom cookies
Add a dash of elegance to the background of these simple mom cookies using stencils! You can easily personalize the background of the cookie to suit your mother. Both of our mothers like flowers so we selected a variety of flower stencils for these cookies. Although we make many of our own stencils for customized cookies and logos, we also purchase a lot of stencils from other vendors. Some of our favorites are 2T’s Stencils, The Cookie Countess, and Killer Zebras.
Change up the stencil to create a variety of background patterns using the same icing colors!
