Winter 2018 Decorated Cookie Collection

Oh how I love winter!
I know that is not a popular opinion, and some may shutter to hear it, but it's the truth.
And every year, I love to make a set of cookies just to celebrate the season.
These cookies are a small snapshot into what makes me so happy about winter.
And of course, snowmen are always a big part of the mix. πŸ’™β›„οΈπŸ’™

I hope you are having a cozy and wonderful winter!

Rustic and woodsy...... that definitely encapsulates one of my favorite styles for Christmas.

It's certainly the most wonderful time of the year!

Personal Side


I'm happy to report I'm improving every day after being so sick.
My voice is still partially gone, so I sound worse than I really am.
But I think that garners me more sympathy. ;)

This week I got to decorate a set of cookies....and boy, did it feel awesome to get back at it!
I've missed my happy place.
It's funny though.......just doing a little COMPLETELY exhausts me.
But each day, I can do a little more.......

I am ready to be healed, energized and back to my fast paced cookie life. :)
Valentines Day is coming......I gotta be ready. haha

I've noticed that being sick ends up having you focus on yourself WAY TOO MUCH.
Of course, at first you have to......but over time, it's time to start thinking about others.
I'm going to take some cookies to some friends/family just to cheer them up.

Finally back to cookies......
Holidays and then the flu have kept me away for far too long.
I'm keeping it simple today.....energy level is not quite up to anything complex. ;)



Do you wanna build a snowman?

Flash back to last year.......a peripheral blood "smear" in cookies.
I am a clinical laboratory scientist, and this is what you see when
you look at a drop of blood under the microscope.
I gave these cookies to my long-time supervisor at her retirement party. :)

Personal Side


The first full week of the new year....
It hasn't exactly started as expected.
Even though I had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas with my family last weekend,
I've been sick with the flu for more than a week now. Ugh!
Cough, congestion, fever, body aches, headache.....it has been miserable.
(P.S. I'm required to get a flu shot every year at my hospital job.....
this is the second time it has completely failed for me.)

Thankfully we were still able to have lots of time together for the holiday 
and enjoy one another.
The Christmas season is such a special one.....and our family celebrated it well. :)

Now it's time get well and start decorating cookies again.....

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......
