I am so excited… SO EXCITED… about this post. I stumbled upon this awesomeness while perusing Creature Comforts, which made mention of this product. I checked it out on Williams-Sonoma, and just cannot – I, I just – it’s so – just LOOK and you’ll understand:
Do you see what I mean?!!
You can imprint pretty much any word or phrase you want. There are seven pre-made words (Welcome, Happy, Birthday, Holidays, Thank You, From, I Love You), and three alphabet sets, not to mention extra vowels and other commonly used letters.
After you’ve arranged your letters, just press the cookie-cutter into the cookie dough, and voilà! You’ve got a cookie with a message. AWESOME.
The set comes with three cookie-cutter shapes: a scalloped-rectangle, a heart and a star.
As if that wasn’t enough; it comes with a dishwasher-safe mesh bag, which helps to make cleanup and storage a lot easier. I cherish such things. Without this dual-purpose baggie, I can guarantee you that somewhere in the process of piecing together a phrase, making a batch of cookies and cleaning everything involved, at least 16 of those letters would be MIA. Entombed indefinitely within the cracks and crevices of my little Brooklyn kitchen, like so many mini time capsules left for future inhabitants. I wonder, what would they make of the messages I unintentionally left for them? I guess we’ll never know, since we’ve got those mesh bags.
So, picture it: your name + your fiancé’s name, imprinted on 100s of sugar cookies. And maybe the words “Eat, Drink, Be Married” or something awfully cute like that, on another 100? Yeah, that’s kind of a great idea. Doesn’t get much more unique than that. But wait, do you already have a dessert planned (separate from the wedding cake)? If so, I think these cookies would make the absolute cutest wedding favor EVER. After all, it’s widely known that guests prefer edible treats over most other wedding favors.
