  3. These are SO insanely adorable! Thank you for figuring out the secret double handshake formula!

    I have a couple of cookie recipes that call for a LOT of flour and yes, mixing in cocoa et al can be a total PITA. The way I solved that is to NOT add all the flour to the master mix, divide the remaining flour by however many "flavors" you are doing, separate your "flavors", add your mix-ins and when those are fully incorporated, add the rest of the portioned flour. Works like a charm; just be sure not to overmix so they aren't too tough.

    Thanks again!

  4. That's a much more sensible idea, Up All Night Stamper! I should have done it that way, too. I just made up the vanilla batch, then said, "Wow, this is a *lot* of dough. I really don't need triple this amount!" and improvised. ;-) It worked out for me, but my technique was a risky one, and yours is definitely the more sensible and sound!

  10. nicole...on the "Scoops of Ice Cream" cookies...can you please tell me how you created the chocolate syrup and the cherry?

    ReplyDelete
  11. The cherry was just made out of fondant (roll a ball, stick a bit of spaghetti in for the stem, and color the stem with green food coloring). The chocolate "syrup" was simply chocolate melts (available at any craft or cake decorating store) melted and drizzled on top of the cookies. Send me your email address if you need more detail!

  18. i am going to this for my child's birthday party. I will use eatable ice cream cones. I am going to make an ice cream stand with a shoe box decorated with wrapping paper and they will stand up!! So perfect for presentation. Love this,,,, thank you again.

  19. I just made the dough for my son's 1st grade class -- sticking in the freezer and baking them on Monday for Valentine's Day! Really great recipe (and my new sugar cookie recipe!) Thanks.

  20. Do you need to use butter or will margarine do the trick? Can't wait to try it out

    ReplyDelete
  21. Never tried it with margarine, Nicky. If you experiment, please report back and let us know if it worked!

  22. Heh. The lampwork community is STILL in litigation with the woman you mentioned. Thank you for the recipe!

  23. I just tried these and I must've made them too big because they didn't cook all the way through and they were in the oven for 18 minutes. I didn't want to bake them any longer because I could tell they were starting to lose their shape slightly. I'll have to try them again with a smaller ice cream scoop. Great idea though, I love it!!

  24. So cute! Definitely making these for my daughter's ice cream themed 1st birthday next month. Do I leave them on cookie sheets to freeze? Cover with plastic wrap I assume? Can I put them in my larger deep freezer or will that be too much? :-/

    1. I left them on the cookie sheets to freeze (just uncovered until they froze), and then transferred them into a ziplock bag once they were frozen through after an hour or so. I haven't tried it in a deep freezer myself, but I expect it should be just fine.
