Hey Besties! We’re in a cookie coma over here, while in love with these latest stamped cookies! And while I’ve shared many cookie stamp recipes and designs, we’ve discovered a new style of stamp! I’m so excited to show you this new design along with exactly how to use a cookie stamp for perfect results! Even with this intricate sunflower design, this stamp delivered perfectly! Read on to choose which flavor recipe you want to make, along with exactly which stamping techniques work best for different stamps.
A New Cookie STamp!
So we’ve established our love for the Nordic Ware cookie stamps time and time again. I still love those stamps, evidenced by the number of recipes and posts I’ve shared using them! They are easy to use and create stunning cookies, using the technique I shared HERE. But today I’m sharing a new style of stamps which allows for an even easier way to achieve perfect designs when used with our recipes!
Today’s beautiful sunflower stamp is available from Fun Food Tools which offers a huge collection of intricate and stunning cookie stamps! When I saw this Sunflower Stamp, I knew I had to have it! But to be completely honest, I was very curious as to how this style of stamp would work with our recipes. Happy to report, they work amazing! But I use a different stamping technique than we do with our Nordic Ware stamps. Fortunately, I found it even easier and hope you do too! It’s always great to have options and we’ll review both techniques and the results they offer!
How To Use A Cookie Stamp
How to achieve perfectly crisp, clean designs using stamps depends on two main things: the recipe you’re using and the stamping technique. We’ve got you covered in the recipe department, with easy to make dough that is incredibly delicious and perfectly holds stamp designs. The hardest part is picking your favorite flavor! They can all be found HERE and are all incredible delicious!
Next, let’s talk about stamping styles and techniques!
Nordic Ware Cookie Stamps
When using metal Nordic Ware stamps, it is best to roll your dough into oversized balls, coat in sugar and then stamp down and use a cutter to remove excess dough. These photos illustrate what the dough looks like after stamping and then after removing excess dough with a round cutter. Very straightforward and simple! Cookies using this style of stamp are generally thicker, unless you’re pushing down really thin, so we bake for 11-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Fun Food Tools Cookie Stamps
With these intricately designed, wooden stamps, a different cookie stamping technique works best. Simply roll out your dough to your desired thickness. We love 1/4 cookies around here, so we use our Joseph Joseph rolling pin to do the measuring for us. Then you will want to dip your stamp in flour, tap off the excess and simply stamp your dough! This style does not require the same amount of pressure that the metal stamps do in order to capture the design. Then simply use a 2.5″ round cutter to cut the dough and place onto your parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Since these cookies are rolled out and thinner after stamping, I found that 8-9 minutes at 350 degrees results in a perfectly soft, chewy cookie. With our Nordic Ware stamped cookies, we typically bake for 11-12 minutes since they are thicker. Bake longer if you want a crispy cookie!
Can It Get ANy Easier?!
It’s seriously as simple as that! ANYONE can make these spectacular stamped cookies that are equally as delicious as they are pretty! No one ever believes they are homemade, and they don’t need to know how easy they are to make! Just sit back and enjoy a cookie and the credit!
