Hi everyone, found the book at the library and these girls make awesome looking cookies! The book is called "The Flour Pot Cookie Book" and their web site is: http://www.flourpotcookies.com/
It is really inspirational!!
So she is using ribbon attached with royal icing I assume? What a wonderful idea!
Awesome cookies. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks!! That's a great sight.
Don't they mostly use fondant for the initial shape on their cookies? Has anyone tried this yet? How is the taste?
This site makes me want to go and bake cookies Now, even though my house is about 88 degrees and we have no air conditioning!!!Thanks for sharing that site..
I saw this company on a segment of Sugar Rush. I only remember because they are not far from where I live. Pretty cool cookies and decorations. It's a mother/daughter duo. Mom mostly does the baking. Daughter does more of the business end. They even have their some of their cookie cutters specially designed for them. It was a fun segment to watch.
Very cool! Thanks for sharing!!!
Thats what i was wondering about fondant too, was the taste? i would hope it would taste good with all the work that goes into some of the cookies. Isn't it tooo sweet??
I bought their book about a month ago and tried my hand at cookies with fondant. They were rather easy to do, but this was my absolute first baking experience and my decorating skills (piping)were and still are not that great. I used MMF for the cookies and the taste was pretty good. I will try to upload a picture of those to my photos. ( I don't know how to upload with my reply.)
I tried the fondant cookies one day when I was in a hurry. They came out great. By the way, it was for a Little League outdoor event and it was 90 degrees out. They sat out for over an hour with no problem, and everyone raved about them.
OK...I have fondant consistency "issues"....does it give the cookies a funny consistency?
I don't think they had a funny consistency - they were a little "chewy" because of the marshmallows, but I took them to a bday party and they were a hit. I like my cookies somewhat soft anyway so I didn't bake these until they were crisp. To me, the fondant consistency kind of went with the overall "soft cookie" thing. If you like your cookies really crisp, you might not like the fondant.
They have a book out too! I do like the cookies but, I think they are too fussy for me. I don't want to have to pull off ribbon to eat my cookies. I guess I am fussy!
I'm lost on the fondant stuff, but ther cookies are nice and they don't charge as much as some cookie places.
thanks for sharing!
Of course you can't do the intricate patterns though. I'm just not the fondant type. Seems harder to do. I really like the ribbons attached!!
Any ideas from anyone on how to get similar patterns without using the fondant?
i made some of the cookies in their book and i used mmf. i like the book too and i have tried to go to their shop a couple of times but i seem to always catch them when they are closed. they sell supplies there. i was looking for a patterned fondant roller.
i tried using the candy clay on a cookie instead of the mmf with royal decorations and my husband thought it was too sweet. i did like working with the mmf. it seemed like you could cover more cookies quicker with it and then go and put on royal icing details afterwards. i like assembly line things.
So cute! Great site too.
I love their Dali clock cookies!!!!
Great cookies. I need to make some for my daughter's bridal shower. How do you think they make theirs? Is it a sugar cookie and then fondant covering? It looks like they may use royal icing. Am I wrong? If you were to make them, how would you do it?
Yes, they use Fondant.....they were on TV (FoodNetwork) b4 and the owner specifically said she only uses Fondant.
which is what I also do. It's very quick and beautiful, that's why I love it..and it always comes out perfect...Fondant taste the same on cookies, just like when it's on cake.
I've eaten their cookies before, and they were very good. The cookie seemed like a basic butter cookie recipe. I don't know what kind of fondant they use - but I think in their book they mention that they buy it (vs. homemade). The fondant tasted light and simply sweet ... it's hard to describe I guess. It was a nice compliment to the cookie. One thing I noticed is that the cookies dried out pretty quickly - within a week they were to hard to bite into. They came with the bag folded over and sealed with a sticker - so maybe if they used a bag sealer they would've stayed fresher. I love the ribbon idea ... but I recently heard that ribbon isn't approved for food use (gosh, I hope that's not the case!). I once suggested to someone attaching ribbon to their cookies and they lady said "Oh no, I just know someone will end up eating it!"
Yes, I saw in on Sugar Rush and I already had a link to the company's website so it was cool to watch
I am not so sure about using fondant to cover the base of the cookie... My husband said that he wouldn't eat them because he hates fondant.
But the cookies were real pretty and cute!!!
I saw them on TV. Very cute.
Thanks for sharing!Great cookies!
