Monogram Cookies

Monogram cookies are great for personalized gifts, weddings and showers.
I made monogramed cookies for my sisters's baby shower with a simple font
so I wanted to try something a little more fancy like the G below:

First I outlined & flooded the cookies
Then I let them dry overnight.
Using my light pink Americolor food markers I drew the G on the cookie
as thin as possible so I could pipe over it.  I admit, I was a little intimidated by the curly design but
it got easier and easier as I went on.   Try it.  You can also cut a template with an xacto knife or a die cut machine such as the Silhouette SD or Sizzix Big Shot & trace it on the cookie if that's easier for you



Loving cookies that are consistantly the same thickness
Thanks to Sugarbelle's post on "How to bake the perfect sugar cookie"
square dowels make a world of difference !

I have an order next weekend for 4 dozen monogrammed cookies - and honestly I have been terrified about how I was going to make a swirly letter transfer and not break it moving it to the cookie..... and you have saved my sanity, my friend! lol. I just ordered some americolor pens and I'm going to make a little template :) THANK YOU for sharing your tips!!!

That was my worry too, transfering a fragile swirly letter. This worked really well for me, hope it works for you too.
