Rycraft Cookie Stamp Recipes


Cookie Stamp Basic Preparation & Helpful Hints

Season the cookie stamp using vegetable oil and a toothbrush
Wash in warm soapy water, dry and then 
season your cookie stamps
 before using
them each time by brushing them with cooking
oil. A toothbrush is ideal for this. Do not use
butter toseason the stamps as it will turn rancid
over time.

Ball of cookie dough in dish of granulated sugar
The stamp works best if the ball of
dough is stamped after rolling it in sugar. You
may also want to dip the stamp in sugar for a
better release from the dough. Be sure to brush 
off any particles of dough from the stamp before
using it again.

Sack of flour with scoop
You may also want to experiment with
the type and brand of flour 
you use, as flours vary and may affect the dough’s
texture and ability to hold the stamp designs. If
the design stamps well but disappears whenbaked, add a little more flour to the dough. You may find you
prefer to use more flour than is called for in our
recipes. You may also find that bread flour
holds the designs better because it has more gluten. You may also add gluten (found in the grocery store) to your recipe to give more body to the dough and hold the design during baking.

Adjustments in baking time and temperature: 
...if cookies are too brown on the outside and not done on the inside, lower your oven temperature and increase the baking time.
...thin cookies bake quicker than thick cookies; adjust baking temperature and time accordingly.
...when using more than one cookie sheet, rotate the sheets on the oven racks half way through the baking cycle.

Lightly beaten egg white may be
tinted with food coloring and painted on the
cookie with a brush immediately after the
cookies come out of the oven.  Photo above: GooseHill
Farms' secret recipe combined cornstarch and
confectioner's (powdered)sugar with powdered egg whites and food coloring or Luster Dust® to create the beautiful cookies shown in this gift box.
Mixer bowl creaming butter and sugar
If your recipe calls for creaming the butter
and sugar, 
be sure not to overcream,
as this may introduce excess air into the
batter which can cause the imprinted
design to “melt away” somewhat during
baking. High-speed mixers may cream
too fast – try turning it to the slowest
speed or else cream by hand.

Experiment with your own cookie
recipes. You may want to 
avoid any
leavening agent
, which means recipes
that contain eggs, baking powder or
baking soda, as the design tends to
disappear when the cookie rises. 

Jar of peanut butter
Be sure to use “homogenized”
peanut butter
 rather than
the natural types that separate in the
jar (the oil rises to the top and
it has to be stirred).

When finished stamping your cookies, 
clean the face of your stamps with
hot soapy water and a soft brush to remove all
traces of butter, then rinse and dry. Your cookie
stamps may be hand-washed like any ceramic dish.
Let themdrythoroughly and store in a sealed
container or in aRycraft display board.

Bottles of food colors, paint brush, stamped cookies being painted and Rycraft cookie stamps
To paint your cookies after they are cooled, try mixing food coloring with water and powdered (confectioners) sugar, then painting with a paintbrush. Or try Luster Dust® (see Luster Dust Cookies below). You can also melt your favorite chocolate in the top of a double boiler (over boiling water to melt it slowly without burning it), and use a paintbrush to apply
it to the design like paint.
