We were visiting friends for dinner.. We were invited this weekend..
They have 3 delicious grandchildren.. 1 girl and 2 boys..their son..the father, is a chef..MN is the oldest and loves to be in the kitchen my friend told me..(I have seen a video of her cooking in the living room:) LOL.. and acts out cooking shows..I have seen her sing a song from Frozen..and I think a star is born:)
I thought she may like making stamped cookies with her Nonna~
MN speaks Italian fluently and summers in Italy~(Imagine..)
I was very excited when I found an Italian recipe for stamped cookies:)
I bought my friend the stamp ...(HOME MADE)..and made the cookies..stamped Home Made from my stamp.. to offer her with the stamp and the recipe..so that she can make some with MN one day..
While I was working with a dough suitable for stamping..I used the mold I received to make Moon Cakes for Chinese New Year....I did order another one with more traditional designs..but this one arrived first...So I used first come first served..
See any moon cakes here?
A fiasco..:( Not the molds fault at all.. it works so well..I just need to perfect the recipe..I NEED a no fail recipe..and actually a much smaller MoonCake mold..less than 50 grs even..would they be easier to make the mooncakes? Does anyone have a fail proof recipe for the mooncake dough?
I sometimes feel our flour is different..from Europe and elsewhere..
For instance this Italian recipe I am sharing the link to..I had to add more butter..I will look in Little Italy:) ..buy some Italian flour and see..
You can see my infatuation with cookie stamps/cookie cutters of many genres started full force in 2011..but prior to that I had ceramic stamps etc..:)
My daughter LOVES Starbucks Coffee and I thought these would be fun to make for her~
This new delightful recipe is from here..
They are light..buttery ..brown sugary:)
I must say..ordering from EBAY since Dec.. a few baking items..I am very impressed at the sellers communication.. honesty etc..
Shipping does take time..but in many cases shipping is free..I am simply mentioning this so that you will be patient..it can take more than 1 month to receive the items..
And it can take much less time..
Prices are reasonable..quality is very good..Shipping from Singapore..Hong Kong and China for me so far on the items I ordered..
Thumbs way up all around.
La Recette.. is here

I hesitate to translate and type here..as I used Google translate and as much as I am grateful to it..I would prefer you go directly to the source..:) and perhaps chose your own method of translation..
These cookies are light ..buttery.. crisp:) I said that already:)
I did chill them before baking..
Had the cutest desserts at our friend's home..little jars filled with Tiramisus or Pecan Pies( crustless)..
