TRUST Decorated Cookie Collection

Continuing in my quest to use cookies to reveal what’s in my heart… is another set of cookies with a message.

TRUST - [truhst]

1) reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.

2) confident expectation of something; hope.

The last few months I’ve been hanging on to to trusting my God for all that He has for me.
He never promised it would be easy…..but he DOES promise to be with me always (Matt 28:20).
He promises that He loves me (John 3:16) and that nothing will separate me from His love (Romans 8:35-39).

One of my favorite verses:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

God is faithful.
I will TRUST Him.

Birthday with SHINE Decorated Cookie Collection

I love to fit an updated birthday cookie set in between all the seasonal cookies.....just to try out new cutters, techniques and products for one of the most common cookie needs around.....BIRTHDAY! 

For this set, I chose to feature silver with pretty blues and a touch of peach. 

Hopefully this set finds one of you with a birthday close by so you feel the birthday love and enjoy the sentiment. I wish I could send your the cookies through the computer/phone screen. :)

Snowman Cookies (Tutorial)

Here's a quick easy way to make some adorable snowman face cookies. :)

Cut out circle cookies.
Make some eyeballs and long carrot noses out of sugar cookie dough and
add them to the snowman's face on the circle cookie.
(see photo below)

Bake and cool the cookies.

Flood the entire circle including the eyes and carrot nose with white glaze.

Allow the cookies to dry overnight.

Using food color markers, add black to the eyes (Americolor black marker), 
orange and brown to the nose, (Foodoodler orange and brown markers)
and eyebrows and a mouth with a fine tip marker. (Rainbow Dust black fine tip marker)
(see photo below)

Elegant Dimensional Snowflake Cookies (Tutorial)

After arriving home from CookieCon 2015 last fall,
I was excited to find a perfect purple color from Progel!
And what better time to display it's beauty than for a winter snowflake theme. :)

All of these snowflakes have been embellished with a texture BEFORE the cookie was baked.
To preserve the embossed surface, I just added a luster dust to bring out the textures.

Silicone texture mats worked best to imprint cookie dough
 as it doesn't adhere to the dough like plastic texture mats do.
If added stability is needed, freeze the cookie dough in the mold for about 5-10 minutes
before popping it out of the mold.

There is more than one way to emboss cookie dough.

One way is to roll out the dough, press the mat into the it, and then cut out the shape.
For the photo below, I used these mats:
Waffle Silicone Design Mat
Duchess Silicone Design Mat
Royal Silicone Design Mat

Another way is to use single molds and add the design on top of an already-cut cookie dough shape.

(Note: You may have to bake cookies longer when they are extra thick because of additions.)

Below, I used one of the molds from this Karen Davies Vintage brooch set and
then this beautiful Katy Sue heart lace mold.

[Note: The larger circle brooch on the left was a mold from Etsy 
that doesn't appear to be available anymore. :( ]

After the cookies are baked and cooled, 
add some clear flavoring (almond or lemon) or vodka to some silver luster dust
and brush it over the embossed designs.

You can do the same with colored pearl dusts like this beautiful purple one.

If desired, add some colored flooded glaze or some piped dots and lines
to surround the embossed pieces.

And here is the rest of the Winter Woodland Cookie Collection......
