Cookies come in various forms today—there are traditional sugar cookies, drop cookies, no-cook cookies, refrigerator cookies, bar cookies, sandwich cookies and shortbreads. There are also healthier cookies made for people who follow specific diets. Creating a batch of the stuff is also as enjoyable as eating them. For festive cookies, we love using cookie stamps for decorative purposes. Here are some of the best in the market today.
- What factors should I consider when buying cookie stamps?
Answer: Here are some things you should remember when purchasing cookie stamps. Majority of cookie stamps sold today are made from high-quality silicone or stoneware material. Both materials have non-stick surfaces to allow for a mess-free cookie creation and easier cleanup. Both stoneware and silicone cookie stamps are durable. However, some silicone cookie stamps are not dishwasher-friendly while stoneware, even though they are quite strong, are more prone to breakage so you need to handle them with care. The price of the cookie stamps is also something you need covered—go for quality ones that your budget can afford. If you want easier cleanup, look for cookie stamps that are safe to clean in the dishwasher.
- How do you clean cookie stamps?
Answer: While there are silicone cookie stamps which are quite dishwasher-friendly, baking experts say that washing them by hand is the best method. To remove bits of dough from the stamp, make use of any small brush (a clean toothbrush will do) or a wooden skewer. Wash the stamps in warm, soapy water to remove all traces of dough.
- Any fast tips for creating the best stamped cookies?
Answer: Try chilling the cookie dough for up to 20 minutes before using the stamps on them. To better set the stamped design on the cookie, you can put the cookies inside the fridge and wait for an hour before baking it. Avoid stuck dough on the stamp by sprinkling the stamp with flour and tapping the excess before stamping it. Check the temperature of the oven and see if it has the proper temperature for baking before putting the stamped cookies in it. For more color and flavor, you can add fondant icing on the cookies as well as other sprinkles you like. These additions will also help hide any stamping mistakes.
