Cookie fun

One of the challenges we have this week at Late Night Stampers is to use our stamps or punches for things that were not their original intention.  My first project for the week - stamping on cookies :) 

For this project, you do need to be sure to have clean stamps both before and after the process.

Here is the recipe I used, although I think just about any would work...
Sugar cookies
1 c. butter (no substitutes)          4 c. flour + 1 tsp. soda,
1 c. vegetable oil                       cream of tartar and salt
1 c. powdered sugar           almond or lemon extract to taste
1 c. white sugar

Mix in order given and roll into small balls.  Flatten on cookie sheet with the palm of your hand or glass dipped in sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.  Cool on rack or paper towel.

I just added the stamping step after flattening with my palm and added some colored sugar to make the image pop.

One of my kids didn't want the sugar on them so I made a couple without :)

I love this idea! Did you clean the stamp with something else (besides stamp cleaner) before putting on the dough?

Thanks. Chera
