Sweet Pressed Snickerdoodle Cookies

If you are not aware of Stampin' Up's sweet pressed cookie stamp sets than you are missing out!  These are the cutest silicone stamps that allow you to add a stamped image onto your cookies.  It's so simple you won't even believe it.  Each set comes with 3 different designs.
Holidays, orange is pumpkin face that you can't see

A sugar and shortbread cookie recipes come with the set when you order them.  I just had to find other cookies that would work with these because I can only take sugar or shortbread so much!  I found someone had tried snickerdoodle and it worked.  I just had to try and wanted to take pictures of each step to show you how easy using these cookie stamps really are.

I found the cookie recipe here.  All you have to do is omit the baking soda from your snickerdoodle recipe if you are using these cookie stamps.  The cookies will not expand during baking without the baking soda which keeps the image on the cookie.

Here's how to make these snickerdoodle cookies:
  1. Make your snickerdoodle recipe without baking soda.  Allow dough to cool in fridge four about 30 minutes.  This will help prevent the cookie dough from sticking to your stamp

2. Using cookie scooper, place about 2 inch ball and roll sugar and cinnamon mix on ball

3. Line up on cookie sheet

4. Choose image to use and place on wooden handle

5. Trying to center the handle on the ball, begin to press down

6. Using even pressure, push down until the dough is right at the edge of the stamp all the way around.
7. Than use your fingers to gently remove stamp around the cookie.

8. Switch handle with another stamp

9. Repeat steps 5 through 7.
10. Switch stamps and repeat steps 5 through 7

10. Bake cookies according to recipe (my oven isn't the best so I can't give you an exact time)

11. Pull out cookies and cool

 The pictures after baking aren't the best but hopefully you can see the image come out on each cookie.  I think the flowers came out the best.  I just absolutely love these cookie stamps and can't wait to see what ones Stampin' Up! comes out with next.
