Has anyone done this?

I need to make cookies that look like coins (they need to keep their detail), so I was thinking about using the Amazing Mold Putty (or something like it) to cast a mold of a giant coin. I'm afraid that if I use it like a stamp the detail is going to distort and flatten when I bake the cookies, so I thought about baking the cookie in the mold.

I've heard that molds don't heat up as quickly as the exposed parts of the dough would, so it might be difficult to bake the dough evenly.

Does anyone have experience with this? Can you offer any pointers?

Thanks so much! icon_smile.gif

I'm not sure if this is exactly waht you would want to know... but, I have molded cookie dough into plastic candy molds and frozen it for a few minutes; then removed the dough from the mold and placed on a cookie sheet and baked.

Using the NFSC dough (no fail cugar cookie recipe is on this site) it held it's shape beautifully and I could still see the detail when it was finished baking.

Interesting idea. Do you have any problems getting the dough pieces out of molds once frozen?

Thanks, guys.

I ended up using the silicone molds to make highly detailed chocolate candy toppers for the cookies. I plopped them on the cookies when they were fresh out of the oven; it worked like a charm and tasted quite yummy.
