Blimey, can't believe it's nearly two weeks since I last posted. Time flies!
Anyway, I just wanted to show you what I've been doing today. These are gingerbread cookies that I've made for my workshop tomorrow using Stampin' Up!'s new cookie press stamps.
Now, I'm no baker, but I had it on good authority that Tesco's gingerbread dough was really nice. So, being very lazy, I decided to give it a go.
It took me literally minutes to do them, so even the busiest person around Christmas could do it. I put the oven on and got the dough out of the fridge to come to room temperature and be more pliable to work with. By the time the oven had heated up, I'd written my notes up for my workshop tomorrow and the dough was ready.
I just got out two trays, tipped the dough out onto one of the trays and broke it up into equal amounts. I then rolled each piece into a ball (I made them approx 1.5" balls and got 15 balls). Pressed with the cookie stamps (I used golden caster sugar to stop them sticking) and baked. It honestly took me about 15 minutes, if that long. That's the type of baking I like!

I'm really pleased with the say they turned out and they are absolutely scrummy. The cookie presses don't just have to be used on dough - they can be used on fondant too to make iced cookies. May have a go at that next! Just call me Martha Stewart!
