While doing a search on yahoo for Valentine's Day cookies, I found some that were just beautiful and I have NO IDEA how they were made!!!! Has anyone seen sugar cookies that had the dough part decorated with different colors? Like it was baked in... And I mean intricate designs too! Not just mushing a few different colored doughs together.

I saw some somewhere and they looked like they had been cut out, embossed (design seemed stamped on top) and then were painted prior to baking. They looked awesome.

I have a recipe to make cookies that look like watermelon slices without frosting. It uses colored sugar cookie dough. Does that sound like what you are talking about?

Without seeing them I can only guess.

You can color your dough and cut out shapes -- a heart with a smaller heart inside and switch the doughs. Like this:¤t=VBCookies.jpg

You can paint your cookies with Egg Yolk Paint.

1 Egg yolk
1/4 - 1/2 tsp of Water
Color Gel/ paste

Mis together and paint your cookies before baking. If your paint gets thick, add a little more water.

I like to use baby food jars for this.

Those ARE awesome! Do you think that painting (like with the egg yolk listed above) would work? I would love to know how those are done as well.

Bumping this up for sure!

Egg yolk painting does work -- YRMV. THOSE cookies were done with edible wafer paper. I just received an order from Fancy Flours with that exact design, among others. I also got the angels and they're gorgeous!

To get similar results, you can flood and fill-in various colors. Or you can go the easy route and buy the EWP. icon_biggrin.gif

I have a cookbook that shows doing this. Cut out round cookies. Then with green colored dough in a piping bag with about a #5 tip, just do a rough christmas tree (I used a left-to-right, back-n-forth motion to make the tree). Then dot with red dough balls for tree decors. Bake. They come out beautiful. A lot of work, though!

Thank you Honeydukes! I ordered some just now! I can't wait to try these. They are a bit pricey, but I think that they are worth it! I am going to attempt the egg white paint just to see if that produces an acceptable alternative!

Thanks again!

Also if you go to Leslie has video tutorials on coloring cookie dough and decorating with it. You might check that out as well. icon_biggrin.gif
