Something Different for Saturday

I received a Stampin' Up! order yesterday and I couldn't wait to start playing with one of the products! It's completely different than any thing Stampin' Up! has offered.
This is Stamp Set Sweet Pressed Cookie Set; Pumpkin Face, Snowflake or Heart Shape
The set come with a really nice handle and you choose which shape you want

I used the Sugar Cookie recipe and tinted the dough orange with food coloring. After the cookies cooled I hand decorated them using black food coloring, water, and black sugar I made using the same black food coloringI have special brushes I use for baking and decorating. I just dipped the brush in the black water and painted the eyes, nose and mouth. I used a spoon and shook the black sugar over the cookie. Aren't they cute?
I made this batch first and colored the dough and then rolled the cookie balls in orange colored sugar.  These so cute too! The Sweet Pressed Cookie set comes with two recipes; Sugared Shortbread and Sugar Cookies. I used the Sugar Cookie yummy!

Here's the one I used

1 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt2 1/8 cups flour

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks one at a time and mix well. Add vanilla, salt and flour and mix well. Dough should be stiff and not sticky; if dough is sticky, add more flour. Roll into 1 1/2" balls. Place 2 1/2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and press with Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp.  Bake 16-18 minutes or until bottom of cookie is lightly browned (edges may be slightly brown, but the top should not brown.
Makes approximately 16 cookies

Happy Stampin'
