I used two bird molds and 6 snowflake molds, and a wood texture (impression) mat.

(I've had the bird molds and wood texture mat for a year but this is the first time I tried them! I still have some molds I've never used...)

I know it's too early to make Christmas cookies but I wanted to see if these tiny snowflake molds can be used for cookies. Tiniest one is about 7 mm wide and  2 mm deep. Real thin parts were broken when I took the dough out of the molds, but I think it's okay level.  I removed the dough from the molds after chilling in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

The birds are made of plain sugar cookie dough and I tinted them with luster/petal dust after baked. They are tiny too, so I attached close up photos.

Wow such a beautiful cookie! I have the same bird mold but never thought to use with cookie dough (only fondant). Did you bake the cookies inside the mold or mold and then bake? I love the way this turned out! It's so clean and well, joyful! Also, did you bake on the textured mat or remove first? Well done!

Thank you! I saw @emilybaking made cookies using the same bird molds before. I've never baked cookies inside molds because I'm not sure if they are oven proof. (They are all very cheap ones! ) About the texture mat, it looks like plastic so of course I removed the dough before baking.

What a lovely entry!  I love that this challenge finally gave you the inspiration to pull all of those unused molds from your cookie closet!  I have a couple of questions - Is the wood-gran cookie painted at all, or is that just chocolate dough with the texture mat?  And the letters - were they made with colored dough or are they painted?

Thank you! The wood cookie is just chocolate dough, which is very dark because I use black cocoa powder. The letters are coloured dough. I applied ivory lustre dust after baking.
