Perfect Stamped or Rolling Pin Cookies via Savoring Time in the Kitchen

April 16th, 2017 Comments off
While the rolling pin mentioned in the article is custom made, there are a host of stamping rolling pins that can be used with the included recipes, including a few available on Amazon which I have linked below. I have a few individual cookie stamps, but using a rolling pin to stamp an entire set sounds like a great idea. — Douglas
 
I do not excel at cookie decorating.  It’s time consuming and, normally, I’m not a fan of icing on cookies anyway.  Cookie stamps or rollers are the perfect alternative to having a ‘cute’ cookie but one that doesn’t takes a lot of time to decorate! The problem with stamped or pressed cookies is often the design isn’t clear because the cookies either spread out or rise too much and the cookie design disappears.  

This past month, I received a special surprise from my very long-time and dear friend, Monique of La Table de Nana.  It was a beautiful, wooden rolling pin engraving with the name of my blog.  You can visit Monique’s post here to find out more about the artist and the lovely variety of engraved rolling pins.  They are the perfect gift for a friend or family member who enjoys baking!

Revisited: Simple Soft and Chewy Ginger Cookies – Yum! [Food]

January 11th, 2017 Comments off

I revisited these cookies a couple of times over the holiday season — once for my annual cookie party and then as something to share when visiting friends. In both cases — and almost universally — these cookies are a great hit with nearly everyone. In fact, the have become one of my favorite cookies — if not THE favorite — of anything else I make.

Even better, they are nearly foolproof to make. Some other recipes — like most baking — can be a bit fussy, but I have made these in my big KitchenAid mixer, with a hand mixer and even mixed them by hand with a wooden spoon.

No. 6 M&M Cookies | Welch’s 24th Annual Christmas Cookie Party

These are one variety I make for myself each year. I love the combination of sugar cookie and traditional, milk chocolate, M&Ms. Sure, the company created M&M Minis specifically to be used in cookies, but they are dark chocolate, not milk chocolate and just don’t seem right.

Back in my childhood these would have been made with multicolored M&Ms, which is all that were available, but now you can get Christmas colors, among many others.
