Message Cookies

Whenever my husband goes to the USA on business, I send him off with a Willams Sonoma shopping list. This time I got some cookie cutters which imprint messages into the dough. There is a heart, scalloped rectangle and star shape and any message can be printed into the dough eg Valentines Day, New Baby, New Home, Christmas, Easter, Get Well or Thank You. They can have piped icing or be decorated with sprinkles, silver balls, or miniature flowers. The dough can also be coloured to any shade you like.  Here I’ve used the official photo of the cookie cutters from Williams Sonoma. I made samples today in a strawberry red colour to try out the recipe in the box.  They are very crisp and sugary – delicious!

He also brought back a Christmas message cookie set with a gingerbread man shape, a bauble and a snowflake and a Bundt tin, which would make large cake for a party or celebration. It would be really nice to have a Lemon Drizzle Cake or Chocolate cake made in it. 


It’s always difficult to narrow down what to put on the shopping list. On a couple of occasions he has been searched at the airport when large sheets of metal (cookie sheets) have shown up on the X ray machine… I’m getting to the point where I can’t give house room to many more tins, but those clever people at Williams Sonoma keep bringing out new things to tempt me!
