This is such a fun and easy way to add a little cuteness to a plain chocolate cookie.
I started with a plain chocolate cookie. I used this recipe, but I shaped the balls to about 1.5". Be sure to make plenty of extras, you know, because you
want to make sure they taste good might want some for practice. When I took them out of the oven, I used a spatula to flatten the top.
After the cookies had cooled, I placed a stencil on top of the cookie. I made the stencil with my digital cutter.
I used a sifter to gently sprinkle a light layer of powdered sugar over the stencil.
Carefully, lift the stencil straight off the cookie.
I made a Christmas charger to put them on.
So cute and festive. Wouldn't this make a great gift?
A little note about the stencil...the thicker the material, the easier it is to pull off the cookie. My stencil was made from vinyl because I can usually get more detail with vinyl vs. cardstock, but cardstock would be easier to lift straight off the cookie.
