I would have loved to have gone to CookieCon, maybe next time! It is a long way from Australia, so having it somewhere easy to get to (West Coast) and plenty of notice on the dates would be great :) The Homespun Christmas Tree is gorgeous and the pixie dust shaker is just a fantastic idea!!

Basic Shapes Winner– and some questions answered

19 Nov

Thanks to everybody who entered!! Wowee! It was a definite Karen’s Cookie Blog record for the number of entries. We had a large influx of entries from our friends in Spain who were sent by Bea Trigo from El Rincon de Bea, a longtime friend to Karen’s Cookies.  Bienvenidos! Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and kindness. Unfortunately there can only be one winner… this time. I’ll definitely do this same type of giveaway again soon. I didn’t realize what a hit the basic shapes would be! I’ll give more away soon.  But for now…

We have a winner! The winner of the 9 sets of basic shapes cookie cutters is Marilena. She said:

Wowwwwwwwwwwww!!! Fantastic giveaway!!!! Love ALL cutters!!!! Thanks!!! Saludos desde Mallorca, en Españaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

I’m so glad you’re excited about the cutters, Marilena! Have fun with them! I sent you an email, so watch for that. If you don’t see my email, you can email me at contact at karenscookies dot net with your shipping address. Congratulations!!

Now a couple of questions asked within the comments of my last post:

First, several of you asked if the cookies are weak at the seams when you piece them together. I have found them to be very sturdy using my recipe. In fact, I baked a couple and broke them on purpose. I gently bent them to see where they would break– if they would break along the seams or somewhere else, and neither one broke at the seams. They each broke somewhere else. I haven’t had any break accidentally either. My recipe does spread a little bit, so I think that might help to fuse the pieces together. If your recipe doesn’t spread at all, you might have more trouble, but I’m not sure. You may just have to experiment a little and see what happens.

Another question asked was if you have to do anything to stick the pieces together before baking. You don’t. Sometimes I’ll rub them a little at the seam, just to make sure they are flush and even, but that’s all I do. No need to dampen the seams with water or anything like that. Just place them on your cookie sheet and bake. I do pat them down gently with a spatula right after they come out of the oven to make sure they’re nice and flat.

I hope that answered your questions about piecing together cookies. Please let me know in the comments of this post if you have any other questions about it.

Thanks again to all who entered the giveaway!  I always enjoy reading your comments!
