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. 💙⛄️💙
I hope you are having a cozy and wonderful winter!
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. :)

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.
