4 first-class cookie decorators. Two from the USA, one from Canada, one from Spain. Marlin and Amy meet virtually on Tuesday for Cookie remedy (I’m present process therapy). On Friday, Marlin, Haniela and Amber be part of forces Cookie lunch break (movies can be found right here). Each digital occasions reveal strategies for adorning stay cookies whereas chatting, sharing ideas and answering any questions from viewers. It begins at midday the place I stay, so now it is a good routine for me, I’ve lunch and cookie remedy on the identical time. Immediately I share two examples of extras that have been not too long ago offered by Marlin and Amy of their sequence on Tuesday. What they’ve in frequent is the usage of paper waffle flowers. For sure, I fell in love with the method …
COPPER SUGAR COOKIES WITH WAFFER PAPER FLOWERS
(from Bewitching Kitchen, ornament after Amy’s lesson)
1 cup butter (226g), minimize into items, chilly
peel of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp honey extract (olive nation)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Cream sugar, butter and lemon zest in a bowl of Kitchen Assist for a couple of minutes till the sugar activates effectively and feels wholesome. Slowly add the eggs, honey emulsion and vanilla extract and stir till integrated, however don’t combine an excessive amount of.
Add the flour combination slowly, stirring on low velocity. If needed, add a bit of extra flour, as much as 1/4 cup. As soon as the dough is assembled, cease and type three discs.

Feedback: The hexagonal cookie lesson with an in depth clarification of the best way to make flowers begins at 41 min. This video. Waffle paper sheets are provided by the vendor of all issues, amazon.com. To make the flowers and leaves, you have to mini perforators or appreciable persistence to chop the shapes by hand. The waffle paper is white, so you’ve got two coloring choices: earlier than or after chopping the figures. I strongly advise you to spray paint or brush on the sheet, let it dry after which minimize out the shapes, as a result of they’re very delicate and tougher to color after chopping. Once you minimize them, they are going to be flat. To offer a three-dimensional look, you possibly can gently wrap them across the prime of a small plastic bottle (eye drop bottles will work nice) or what Amy presents, utilizing the highest of an airbrush paint bottle like this. Each strategies work like a allure, simply be light. Even when the middle breaks a bit of once you add the facilities, it would cover the boo-boo. As for the facilities, they are often dry transfers of Royal icing, or you possibly can simply apply a bit of stain once you stick the flowers on the floor of the cookie. One of the best factor about these decorations is that they final a very long time, so you can also make a bit of treasure trove of flowers, leaves and save them for emergencies with cookies (or cupcakes).
CHOCOLATE HANDS COOKIES
I discover these cookies completely cute! I can not share the precise recipe I used, as it’s only accessible to Marlin supporters by her Patreon web site. You’ll be able to definitely use your favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, so long as it would not include a leavening agent. It is usually a good suggestion to decide on a recipe that requires a bit of brown sugar in order that the dough is extra versatile and clean.
An in depth methodology of shaping and adorning may be discovered right here, beginning at 32 minutes and 30 seconds. Its flowers are logs above mine, with added particulars that I feel exceed the extent of my expertise. She performs magic with the airbrush! Ultimately, they give the impression of being identical to cherry blossoms, however I am nonetheless fairly enthusiastic about my little infants.
The key to creating the crust look is brushing the Americolor Ash cookies simply earlier than baking. This step is non-compulsory, however I imagine it provides quite a lot of allure.
As you possibly can see, I take advantage of parchment paper once more. The twigs have been baked proper after the hexagonal cookies from Amy’s lesson, and a few cookies, you possibly can nonetheless see their ghostly photographs there …
After baking, you have to a inexperienced Royal glaze with a agency consistency to connect the leaves and glue the flowers to the floor.
One other method to make use of wafer paper is to stay them on the floor of a freshly baked cookie, the residual warmth will trigger the ornament to stay and lie on it.
Now I have to additionally point out that the decorations look very good, however not everybody will benefit from the style of waffle paper. So inform your company or somebody who will benefit from the cookies that they will simply peel off the decorations if they like. You can too decrease the quantity of wafer paper by combining the flower with piano glazes.
