green tea pressed cookies

4.08.2008

I love making pressed cookies, actually I love making any type of cookie. These are customized pressed cookies by stamping them with a rubberstamp before baking them to decorate them without really decorating them (i.e. with icing, sprinkles, etc). It took me a while to find something I liked. Finally at Kate's Paperie, I found a stamp of a heart within two circles which was about the right size of a perfect cookie. In order to make this effective, I left out baking soda or any riser to the dough. Now that the weather is finally changing, I wanted to make a flavor to celebrate spring.
