I am decorating Easter egg cookies with mmf. I am putting the mmf directly on the cookie with no icing underneath. Will this be good when people eat it? I wonder if the entire piece of mmf will come off when they take the first bite. I really don't want to eat one to find out. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks so much for any help!!


ps I am a ding dong when it comes to decorating cookies.

As long as you don't add the fondant to the cookie right out of the oven you can remove it from the cookie if you don't like it. To attach the fondant to the cookie when it is cool you can use a little bit of water or Kayro syrup and it can still be removed. Love the Homemade MMF (recipe listed here in recipe section) its delicious. I would not recommend the Wilton's fondant if my life depended on it. (yuck!) Decorate away on your Fondant cookies. (Fondant is the main frosting I use on my cookies)

Hope that helps.



Forgot to add: if you make the fondant in a thin layer then you won't get a large mouthfull of fondant. If you want the fondant to stay on the cookie as you bite into it, I would recommend the "out of the oven" (it melts onto the cookie) method. You will have a light frosting and shouldn't have any trouble eating them.

MMF on cookies taste great! My BIL and my brother can't stand a lot of cookies, but they LOVE the NFSC with mmf.

I just made easter cookies with nfsc and mmf and it tasted really good. My DH prefers the MMF over th RBC. He compared the taste to Peeps.

thanks for the replys. I made the cookies Monday so the out of the oven method is not an option. So what is the next best thing to get the mmf to stick to the cookie? Should I use the Karo syrup?

just alittle water brushed on back should do the trick.

I use just water too. Fondant stays in place. I've never had a problem with it coming off.

I just made baseball cookies last weekend with mmf. Just painted the back with water & let it dry. It was stuck on there & when the kids bit into it they only got what they were biting.

Hope that helps. icon_surprised.gif)

I'm also doing my Easter cookies tomorrow. I've made my MMF-first time-I hope it's okay. My daughter tried some and said it was yummy. I plan on putting it on when I take it out of the oven. When I'm decorating will the Alice's cookie icing stick to the MMF? Will the MMF be dry enough when the cookie has cooled? If not how long should I wait before decorating?

mom2c-m Posted 5 Apr 2007 , 4:58am

It's just me again.

How long does the icing need to dry before I bag it? I need these cookies done by Saturday morning. Well I guess that means another late night tomorrow.

2yummy Posted 5 Apr 2007 , 12:56pm

I let mine sit out over night and them seem fine to bag. I am doing this for the first time so I am not %100 sure.

Also the water trick really worked to make the mmf stick to the cookie. Thanks to everyone for your help!

Let it airdry 24 hours, then bag. If you have a food dehydrator, put them in there, on the racks and let it go for 24 hours to be sure. But regular airdrying should work just fine. You can have a fan on in the background to help speed up the process if you like.

kdkamp Posted 6 Apr 2007 , 1:19am

I put my MMF on right out of the oven, and it worked fine. I made the cookie bouquet in my pictures in one morning & part of the afternoon and delivered to my friend in the evening. The MMF sped everything up.

2yummy Posted 6 Apr 2007 , 1:45am

You go girl, your bouquet is cute!!

allissweets Posted 6 Apr 2007 , 2:23am

I don't make cookies but I'm getting increasingly curious...I love the look of the MMF on the cookies, and I'm sure it tastes delicious! How do you cut out the MMF for the cookies, do you use the same cookie cutter? I'm guessing that's the case, and the actual cookies spread out a little bit when baking. Is that right?

kdkamp Posted 6 Apr 2007 , 12:14pm

You use a cookie cutter for the MMF. Yeah, the actual cookie spread a little.

bobwonderbuns Posted 6 Apr 2007 , 2:31pm

Here is one example (of many) of what MMF looks like on cookies. It's done by Boonenati.

mom2c-m Posted 7 Apr 2007 , 4:50am

Some of the cookies don't spread at all like Penny's from Penny's Pastries in Austin. So the MMF is the same size as the cookie.

I just finished my Easter cookies and they turned out pretty good. It was really easy to do.

I wish I could say this was true for me. Unfortunately, I had to modify Penny's recipe. The original recipe spread worse than the NFSC.

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried the cookie mold recipes for fondant covered cookies?

No, but I'm a big fan of those molds and in the idea book that Lucy put out she talked about using the molds to mold fondant. (That's my next project!) icon_wink.gificon_biggrin.gif

I have a pic of my easter egg cookies in my pictures if anyone wants to see them. I used the Wilton cookie recipe this time. I like it better than the NFSC. Wilton tastes really good to. Then I just decorated with mmf. These were only a handful of cookies I did. In total I made about 40. Thanks to everyone who helped me! I finally ate one and it tasted good with the mmf on there.

I just purchased two molds off ebay REALLY cheap. I paid $2 for one, and $3 for the other. The two molds I purchased were dated 1983 & 1989 which happen to be the years my son's were born icon_biggrin.gif
The molds are great! Oh, I did buy a rare mold MOMSTER for a pretty penny. It's the cutest monster holding a lace mom heart!

Anyway, I tried the snickerdoodle recipe this morning and the cookie did not spread at all. It had a slight raise to the dough in the oven. The taste is thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif . I'm making a second batch because these will go fast in my house!
The dough was VERY easy to handle. I'm going to try them with my cookie cutters. I think these mold recipes will work great with fondant.

I have a MMF question also when you take the cookie from the oven and go to put the MMF on it do any of you ever have a problem lining up the cookie? I am afraid mine will be all crookedicon_sad.gif I want to try these in a little bit but I am a little afraid.

Lining up the MMF wasn't really a problem for me. Next time I'm going to try putting the MMF on the back of the cooled cookie (for a flatter surface).
