The possibilities for a gift wrapping post title are endless.
As in the obvious title…..“Wrap it Up”
or the encouraging…..“You’re on a Roll”
or the obscure…..”Developing a good ‘Wrap’ por”
or my personal favorite….“Hope This Present Doesn’t Get a Bum Wrap.”
No eye rolling or groaning please.
I’ll be here all week.
Cookie Gift Tag
An Easy Fun Edible Project
Just please don’t hang them on your tree
Step 1: I started with this
Ummmm….I haven’t really turned over that new cooking leaf yet.
I wish my grandmother had a sugar cookie recipe.
Then I could link it up here.
But my grandmother favored pizza rolls and clementine oranges.
So I used the next best thing…..break apart sugar cookies from the aisles of the grocery store.
Step 2: Break cookies apart
Separate cookie square.
Each tag is 1 and 1/2 cookie square.
Step 3: Roll out individual cookie
Flour surface and rolling pin.
Roll out dough in shape of square until it is about 1/2 inch thick.
Step 4: Stamp cookie and add hole for ribbon
I bought my stamps at Hobby Lobby. The simpler the stamp the better.
Stamp cookie with new unused rubber stamp.
(I washed my stamps first).
Make hole for ribbon (I used the end of a mixer beater).
Cut away excess dough from edges to form a square.
Bake cookies according to package directions.
Then….here is the secret to success with this project:
Take the cookies out of the oven and RE-STAMP them again while the cookies are still warm.
I tried everything.
I put the dough in the freezer and stamped with ice cold stamps and made the dough thick and made the dough thin and stood on my head and sang “The Star Spangled Banner.”
All I ended up with was puffy cookies that had absolutely no idea what day to open a present.
And then a light bulb went off.
And I tried stamping the fresh-out-of-the-oven cookie.
It worked perfectly.
Success and edible cookie tags were mine. And that my wonderful friends….
…..is a wrap.
PS So sorry….I couldn’t resist one more.
