Thank You for Reading!

Yes – I am still backlogged, but I thought I would put up this more recent endeavor… I saw these Cookie Cutters a few weeks ago on the Williams-Sonoma website. I don’t know why I was on the Williams-Sonoma site (we don’t often shop there because it is pretty expensive). I was probably looking to see if the amazing Breville Tea Maker had come down in price. Anyway, they had some really cute cookies cutters called Message-in-a-Cookie Holiday Cookie Cutters. I thought about driving to Williams-Sonoma before Christmas to see if they had these, but didn’t. Then, we got a Christmas gift from there and it came with a $10 gift card. So, between Christmas and New Years we decided to check it out. I ended up getting the non holiday version of these cutters – I thought they would be more versatile. Here is the link and these ones are still available online – the holiday ones are not (but you might be able to find them discounted in the store). Anyway, I was a little skeptical about these actually working. So, I figured I would try them out right away since Josh and I were going to try to do some no carb/no sugar eating for a while after New Years…

So, it came with three cutters and within each cutter it has a little thing that you press down that imprints letters on your cookie. It comes with some pre-made phrases like “Thank You” and “I Love You” and then it comes with 3 sets of alphabet letters (no numbers unfortunately).

I followed their recipe and made some green sugar cookie dough. I cut out the cookies and then used the imprint to create some Happy New Years stars and then some Josh and Lorraine hearts. Here is what they looked like before I put them in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes or so… As you can see on one of those New Years stars… if you push too hard you can see the imprint of the lines that the letters slide into.

I made a few others with some scraps I had including a “Go Green” one since the dough was green (and for MSU of course!) and plopped them in the oven. Here is what they looked like when they were all done. I cooked them for a little too long. You can see the brown on the edges. Once they were cooled I then did some decorating on them just to see what it would look like… not too bad for a first time… I guess these do work.

And… last but not least…. this ones for you!
