Thanksgiving Dinner Place Card Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

I've dreamed of making place card cookies for Thanksgiving year after year and it hasn't happened until NOW. Hurray! What fun it is to gather family and friends around the table and designate their places with personalized cookies.

There are so many possibilities for place card cookies. Pick a plaque or geometric shape that fits the event or the people invited, and personalize them for each guest. And of course, this idea is not limited to Thanksgiving. It could be used for any holiday, birthday, wedding, etc.

I always hesitate to write words on a cookie. I'm rarely happy with my printing on a cookie. So anytime I can get out of it, I will! This time I tried out these awesome Snap Together Letter Embossers and they worked well.

Outline and flood the cookie with glaze. Allow it to dry for about 2-3 hours.

Pick out the words you desire to express on the plaque, snap them together, and gently press them into the glaze.

Embellish each cookie as desired.

Once the cookies have dried overnight, use a food color marker to add the names of the guests to the cookies.

P.S. Don't be surprised if this year's Thanksgiving Dinner starts with dessert! ;)
