I scoped out the cutest cookie recipe on one of my very favorite sites, Bakerella. Perfect for a Mother's Day Tea Party! You can change the colors for different themes like Mother's Day, Easter, Showers, Tea Parties Kentucky Derby, Red Hat Society, Mom or Grandma's Birthday and more! 

 Example: These are the cookies Bakerella whipped up! She got the idea from this great cookie book called (Cookie Swap)! Find it on Amazon.

  From the book. Here’s what they are supposed to look like. Gorgeous, huh! These are made using royal icing to coat the hat and pipe the perfect little dots. Fondant is used for the flowers and the bands.

  Time Saver: To save time and to avoid waiting for royal icing to dry you can improvise.. and use fondant; as shown here with tinted and rolled fondant.

Details, Details: Also sugar pearls can be used to add detail. To help them stay in place, Bakerella used the pearls to press indentations around the hat. Then, I put a tiny amount of water on the sugar pearl and placed it in position.

And More Details......  Here they are with and without the tiny pearls. The base of the sugar cookie hats should be rolled thin before baking and the top part of the hat should be thicker to accommodate the fondant band. Bakerella used the shortbread sugar cookie recipe in the book, but feel free to use your own recipe and decorate.

Note: To get the fondant and cookie shapes to match in size, Re-cut the cookies with the cutter when you take them out of the oven and while they were still warm because they will spread a little.

You can attach the fondant to the cookies with a little bit of icing and you can attach the fondant flowers with a little dab of water. Fondant Flowers: Pick up a fondant flower plunger for this cute decoration.

 Whats Mothers Day Without Flowers? 
You can cut shapes out of fondant and by pressing down on the plunger, you can make center indentations… or not. You can also press the plunger into the fondant and remove the flower shape to then press and release onto a sponge or paper towel. This will give the flowers a curved shape. 

 We Call Them Curvy: See how they curve when you press them into a soft surface and release? If you wanted, you could also add sugar pearls to the centers or pipe with icing.
