These Floral Shortbread Cookies Are Almost Too Pretty To Eat

Hello everyone, I have an extremely important announcement: These cookies are the most beautiful things I've seen in my whole small life.

They're shortbread cookies with real, edible flowers baked into them (like this gorgeous pansy), and oh my wow, I don't know if I want to frame it or eat it immediately.

The pretty little sweets are made by chef and baker Lori Stern, and yes, they're for sale on her website.

You can buy a box of two dozen for $96. Stern, who started making the cookies in April 2017, began selling them on her website in February due to the amount of interest on Instagram, she told BuzzFeed.

Stern uses all organic ingredients for the dough, and all kinds of edible flowers, including violas, calendulas, bachelor buttons, nasturtiums, lavender, chamomile, and more.

She grows some of the flowers in her own garden, and gets others from farmers markets and friends' farms.

Each flower gives its own distinct taste to the cookies.

And honestly, they're all just lovely.

Stern also makes pressed flower crusts and pasta, which are sadly not for sale.

Which is fine for me, because these cookies are pretty enough to make me forget about all other foods.
