Help with a cookie stamp? / Homemade oreo help?

adam | Aug 6, 2008 12:08 PM

Hey guys!

So my fiancee and I are planning on making homemade oreo big stuf cookies (the really big ones they used to make) as our wedding favor (she made some for me when we first started dating). We got a custom cookie stamp, with our initials and a nice design, for decorating the cookies. The stamp came the other day, and it's awesome, but we're not 100% sure we're using it right or using the right recipe.

For the cookie recipe, we tried using this recipe for "homemade" oreos: .

We tried oiling and flouring the cookie stamp, which still resulted in a lot of sticking. We tried stamping post-baking, which worked ok but not great. We tried dipping in just flour or powdered sugar, which helped bring the design out a little bit.

My questions - anyone with advice on technique? Anyone with a good recipe for chocolate wafer-type cookies that would work well with a cookie stamp?

Thanks in advance!!
