mmf on cookies

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I am decorating Easter egg cookies with mmf. I am putting the mmf directly on the cookie with no icing underneath. Will this be good when people eat it? I wonder if the entire piece of mmf will come off when they take the first bite. I really don't want to eat one to find out. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks so much for any help!!


ps I am a ding dong when it comes to decorating cookies.

As long as you don't add the fondant to the cookie right out of the oven you can remove it from the cookie if you don't like it. To attach the fondant to the cookie when it is cool you can use a little bit of water or Kayro syrup and it can still be removed. Love the Homemade MMF (recipe listed here in recipe section) its delicious. I would not recommend the Wilton's fondant if my life depended on it. (yuck!) Decorate away on your Fondant cookies. (Fondant is the main frosting I use on my cookies)

Hope that helps.



Forgot to add: if you make the fondant in a thin layer then you won't get a large mouthfull of fondant. If you want the fondant to stay on the cookie as you bite into it, I would recommend the "out of the oven" (it melts onto the cookie) method. You will have a light frosting and shouldn't have any trouble eating them.

MMF on cookies taste great! My BIL and my brother can't stand a lot of cookies, but they LOVE the NFSC with mmf.

I just made easter cookies with nfsc and mmf and it tasted really good. My DH prefers the MMF over th RBC. He compared the taste to Peeps.

thanks for the replys. I made the cookies Monday so the out of the oven method is not an option. So what is the next best thing to get the mmf to stick to the cookie? Should I use the Karo syrup?

I use just water too. Fondant stays in place. I've never had a problem with it coming off.

I just made baseball cookies last weekend with mmf. Just painted the back with water & let it dry. It was stuck on there & when the kids bit into it they only got what they were biting.

Hope that helps. icon_surprised.gif)

I'm also doing my Easter cookies tomorrow. I've made my MMF-first time-I hope it's okay. My daughter tried some and said it was yummy. I plan on putting it on when I take it out of the oven. When I'm decorating will the Alice's cookie icing stick to the MMF? Will the MMF be dry enough when the cookie has cooled? If not how long should I wait before decorating?

It's just me again.

How long does the icing need to dry before I bag it? I need these cookies done by Saturday morning. Well I guess that means another late night tomorrow.

I let mine sit out over night and them seem fine to bag. I am doing this for the first time so I am not %100 sure.

Also the water trick really worked to make the mmf stick to the cookie. Thanks to everyone for your help!
