Cookie Recipes

Each time before using, season your new cookie stamps by brushing them with cooking oil. Do not use butter to season stamps. Sticking may be minimized by dusting your cookie stamp with flour. Be sure to mix ingredients very well to prevent dough from flaking when stamped. Cookie dough should be rolled into walnut size balls. Stamp and flatten to desired thickness with cookie stamp. When finished, a tooth brush and hot water are ideal for cleaning your cookie stamps. Let dry and store until next time.

Helpful Hints
By avoiding recipes containing baking powder or baking soda, cookies will not rise as much and designs will be more distinct. Icing sugar will be the term used for confectioner’s sugar, or powdered sugar. Berry sugar is somewhat finer than regular sugar and can be made by pulsing regular sugar through the food processor. Food coloring may be used to tint dough and accent designs. Immediately after cookies are taken from oven, brush design surface with a lightly beaten egg white tinted with food coloring.
