My Dad would love these cookies! He collected this type of rocks, I remember having a bunch of them around, of all sizes and colors, although I think he was partial to the amethyst and its gorgeous purple. Some were really big and extremely heavy, so they stayed in the same place in the living room, and were dusted from time to time. I can still picture them in my mind.

These cookies are really easy to make. All you need is rock sugar, available online or maybe you can even find it at your grocery store. I ordered this one. You will need to place some in a bag and crush it a bit so that you’ll have smaller pieces. Then all you need is to flood your cookies with white Royal icing, immediately place the sugar crystals on top in any pattern you like. Wait at least 6 hours to paint with diluted gel color (I used vodka to dilute). Finally, a little gold luster and that’s all! I also added gold luster in a fine splatter all over the cookie, but that is optional. It does make a bit of a mess on the countertop!

These would be great in many colors, but I am partial to purple. They will always bring memories of my Dad.
