Gingerbread Recipe - Can Only Roll on Parchment Paper

Hi, all! I'm new to this forum and so happy to be here. I have an issue with Julia's gingerbread recipe, when I roll it out it is very difficult to remove it intact to transfer it to the baking sheet. If I roll it on parchment paper, of course I do not have that problem as I take away the excess cookie dough and am able to transfer the parchment paper with the cookies with no problem and they bake beautifully.

Now after watching all...Read More...

Call for Help! Packaging for Shipping and Freshness!

So I went live with my Etsy shop on Thanksgiving Day. I got my first two orders not long after. One package arrived, the other did not. Thank you for that happy customer USPS! When I sent out my first two orders I packaged up a cookie for myself with the plan to taste test along with the customer when they received their package. Not like on video chat or anything, but I would eat it the same day they got the packaged delivered. (Hope that made sense lol) Anyway, back to the problem. The...Read More...

Paint Your Own Cookie Troubleshooting

Hi all! I’m playing around with PYO cookies for the first time and was wondering if anyone had some tips to share. I made some the other day that I let my kids test out for me. They looked great and the kids had fun with them, but the painted colors were pretty light on my 5 year old’s masterpiece. And my 2 year old just completely dissolved the stenciled image and ended up with a gray cookie 😂. I know it’s kind of the “nature of the beast” for water to dissolve the stenciled image when...Read More...
