Cookie Dough

  1. Roll out the dough between sheets of plastic wrap to a 3mm thickness. Refrigerate to make it easier to handle.
  2. Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters, being aware of these tips:
    • Coat thin or intricate shapes with strong flour to prevent sticking.
    • Gently press on thin sections with a sugar craft stick for cleaner cuts.
    • For delicate shapes, move the cookie to a baking sheet before removing the middle section with a toothpick.
  3. Arrange the cookies on a cotta Silpat, and refrigerate if they become too soft.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C, lower to 170°C, and bake for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden brown. Adjust the time and temperature according to your oven.

Stained Glass Cookies

  1. Outline cookies with royal icing.
  2. Fill the inside with a thinner icing and let dry.
  3. Add details and patterns with royal icing in contrasting colors.


  1. Melt Palatinite in a small pot, and color with Wilton Gel Color using a toothpick.
  2. Quickly pour the melted Palatinite into the hollowed-out sections of the cookies placed on aluminum foil.
  3. Allow to cool, and then remove the cookies from the foil.
