Hi stampers! Happy Christmas Eve! I know everyone's busy (so far I've run four miles, made a pumpkin pie cheesecake, pizza dip, cleaned the house and baked cookies, lol) but I just had to share what I made today! I finally used my Sweet Pressed Cookie stamps and they turned out so well! I used the sugar cookie recipe that came with the stamps and I didn't THINK I liked sugar cookies....well...guess who can't stop eating them, ha!
The cookie stamps are very cool! My hubby even agreed when I let him make a couple! You get a wooden handle and then three silicone cookie stamps! They leave a raised image on your cookie that is just too cool! You just make balls of dough and stamp away! They do take a bit of practice to get the cookie pressed to the right thickness and evenly but it was easy!
Check them out!
Now, I made some without sprinkles and some with. For the ones without I know some people had trouble with the dough sticking a bit and had to dip the stamp in sugar but mine didn't seem to stick. I did not refrigerate my dough either like some have said. I think I'll try that next time just to see if there is a difference! For the ones with the sprinkles I took the stamp and turned it upside down and poured the sugar over it then wiped the excess off with my (clean, hehe) finger. I then took the dough to the stamp and pressed down with my hand until I had the stamp covered. Then I flipped it over and finished pressing it on the cookie sheet! Viola! Sprinkles only on the raised images!
And you know me, as a stamper I can't just GIVE some cookies away. I HAD to package them up all cute! I used some retired ribbons I had laying around and a stamp from Grateful Greetings and our cello bags. It was quick and easy and super cute...I need some kids to do this stuff with, hehe!
Wishing you all a merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!
