WHAT IDEAS DO YOU HAVE FOR STAMPED COOKIES?????
1. About the COOKIES: Typically, I bake cookies from scratch. Because I wanted to make the video quickly, I decided to buy them. I had trouble finding round, flat cookies about this size--until I was in Walmart. (Wouldn't you know?) They look quite homemade -- and according to my kids-- they even taste really good. They cost under $2 per package. I used the bottom of the cookie so they'd be even flatter.
2. About the STAMPS: When I tried the pink rubber stamps on a thin dry layer of royal icing, I found I needed a much thicker layer to evenly coat the cookies and smooth the bumps and lumps. As it turned out, I found a set of inexpensive foam stamps and discovered they really flexed easily and worked super well. I am sure I could have eliminated the need for the extra royal icing!
3. **About ROYAL ICING: It's so simple to make using powdered sugar and fresh or powdered egg whites and water. (My recipe: 1 tsp powdered egg whites, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and water)
