These cookies are a fun way to keep the kids busy during the holiday season. My cousin and I were planning a cookie exchange and so I came up with this. Kids love to create edible works of art so if you make these cookies I am sure you will have some happy campers. Wilton sells tools needed to stamp on fondant cakes but I wanted to apply this concept to cookies and let the kids color their cookies before the eat them. I also didn't like the stamps that were available so I went searching in the craft store and found these stamps ,they are for fabric but work great on the cookies and you could even make your own stamp if you want. Then my cousin showed me a video where you can make coloring cookies for kids but that involves piping colored royal icing over the white and basically drawing on the cookie. I love that idea but I know a lot of people like me are more comfortable stamping then drawing. ;)
