Coffee Bean Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

Coffee lovers abound in our family.
In fact, a few of my boys have even become quite the "coffee snobs".
I've learned about all kinds of gadgets, methods, and gourmet beans that make the beverage beyond compare. :)

It seemed fitting to create a whole set of cookies to celebrate such a popular hot drink.

For coffee bean cookies, use an oval cutter with chocolate cut-out dough.
Place a piece of plastic wrap over the rolled out dough and then cut the cookie over the plastic.
This will give it a rounded edge that resembles a true coffee bean.

Before baking the cookies, use a long thin tool like a cake tester to make impressions across the widest part of the oval to create the indentations seen in coffee beans.

Once the cookies have been baked and cooled, create a palette of colors using Americolor Egg Yellow, Chocolate Brown, and Warm Brown gels. Paint over the top and sides of the "beans" to give them realistic hues.
