I’m a total sap for all things relating to fairies, like fairy door cookies. On the wall of my childhood bedroom hung a beautiful poster of flower fairies with colorful wings, dancing around a pond.

Frogs, dragonflies, and beetles joined the magical scene, and this was my mental escape throughout my youth.

Happiness, Fairies, and Magic

I used to wish for wings before falling asleep or the opportunity to meet a fairy, if only in a dream. Perhaps, this was the origin of my love for bugs and nature.

My kids were then privy to all my favorite magical movies and shows, alongside new additions like Barbie Fairytopia–the love for fairies and the creatures of their realm was effectively passed down.

How To Make Fairy Door Cookies

  1. Cut the bottoms off of your Milano cookies so they’re flat and able to stand on their own. Don’t waste the scraps! Either snack on the remnants or save them to go with tomorrow morning’s coffee.
  2. Add the candy melts to a resealable bag and leave it open. Microwave it at 50% power for 30 seconds and knead with your fingers. Repeat this process until it’s fully melted.
  3. Seal the bag and snip a tiny bit off of one corner.
  4. Pipe your designs onto the cookies and add your sprinkles! You’ve been given a full creative license!
  5. To make your grass, simply mix the water and food coloring and add it to a bag of shredded coconut. Mix until it is all green.
