Easiest Ever Christmas Cookie Decorating Idea—Modern Stamps!

/ Friday, December 20, 2013

Q: Have you gals made your Christmas cookies yet? I've done a TON of baking for work this week but haven't gotten around to making my own treats at home—whoops! I'm responsible for Christmas Eve cookies, so I need to hightail it this weekend. What have you made so far?

If you're interested, Good Housekeeping just posted my 13 super-quick ideas for decorating sugar cookies. I made them all using store-bought dough; a few tweaks makes the pre-made stuff a lot easier to work with. You can even watch a little video of me making the Plaid Sugar Cookies, which I'm kind of obsessed with! My favorites, though: These simple stamped sugar cookies. How cute at they!? Here's how you make 'em...

SERVE: 10 to 12

1 (16.5-ounce) tube store-bought sugar cookie dough
1/2 to 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Cooking spray

1. Break the cookie dough into pieces on a lightly floured surface. Knead in 1/2 to 3/4 cup flour, a few sprinkles at a time, until smooth. Pat into a disk; wrap and refrigerate until ready to use or immediately roll out to 1/4 inch thick.
2. Cut cookie dough into circles using a round cookie cutter. Arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; freeze 30 minutes. Lightly spray a stamp with cooking spray.
3. Bake cookies as label directs. Remove from the oven and immediately stamp each cookie while they're still warm, spraying the stamp with more cooking spray as needed. Transfer to racks to cool.
