Customizable Cookie Stamp

Customizable Cookie Stamp

I have seen all kinds of cookie stamps on the market over the past few years. As their name stages, cookie stamps allow you to easily stamp a message or a design onto unbaked cookes, just as you might mark a peanut butter cookie with a cross-hatch pattern with a fork.

Cook’s Country Reviews Handheld Mixers

Cook's Country Reviews Handheld Mixers

As much as I like my stand mixer, I find that I still use a hand mixer with great regularity. A hand mixer is great when you only need to mix up a small batch of something like brownies or cake and you simply don’t want to get out the big mixer. It can also be a good tool when you need to mix up ... Read More »
