MMF on cookies rocks!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Finally, I've managed to post some photos to CC! icon_biggrin.gif

A few weeks ago, I decided on a whim to try out some decorated cookies -- the Allrecipes thick sugar cookie recipe someone on here posted a link to -- with MMF. I rolled and cut out the fondant pre-baking and put it on the cookies while they were warm .... so I was able to draw lines in the fondant while it was still soft. These are the flower cookies in my pics. icon_razz.gif

Encouraged by feedback, I made a few batches of fall-themed cookies: Pumpkins, footballs, sunflowers, autumn leaves. With the leaves, I marbled together red, orange, yellow and brown fondant and rolled it out. This photo is also in my pics ... sorry, I don't have the photo on this computer so I can't post it directly here. icon_redface.gif

The director at my son's preschool called and left a message asking where I bought the cookies because she wanted to buy more. icon_biggrin.gif I'm just a hobbyist, but for the preschool ...

Don't you love those cookies!? i always add a little extra flavoring (T. almond extract or vanilla, or any emulsions or concentrated flavorings.. i just used the Buttery Sweet Dough bakery emulsion and they were PERFECT! i roll them very thick, and people call my cookies "cake" cookies.... I hope you enjoyed the recipe!

Those cookies look devine, I see the recipe is for 6 whole eggs plus 4 egg yolks? Is that right? Also , do you just use the regular homemade MMF? Thanks and keep those cookies coming.

nikki1201, thanks so much for that recipe! (Sorry, I couldn't remember who posted it the first time.) I've been looking for a sugar cookie recipe like that for years, and people are raving about them! I'll have to try that flavoring ... yay, another reason to justify a baking-goodies order .... icon_rolleyes.gif

How does the MMF taste on the cookies? I've always wanted to try this, but knowing how most people peel fondant off of cake has me hesitant.

Does it have a weird texture compared to regular cookie icing?

MacsMom: I wasn't sure about the fondant either, but I used MMF rolled relatively thin and it was great! These cookies are nice and solid and the sweetness doesn't overwhelm them. The texture stayed nicely soft even after the cookies cooled, but I did kept them in a tightly sealed container to make sure it stayed that way.

I can't wait to try other flavorings in it. Peppermint extract MMF on chocolate cookies, maybe? Mmmm. Wonder if I can convert that cookie recipe to chocolate .... icon_biggrin.gif

I wouldn't use Wilton, which doesn't taste good at all and is the only ready-made fondant I've ever gotten my hands on. I'm finally going to order some Satin Ice and give that a shot, but I think I'll ultimately stick with the nice, cheap MMF. thumbs_up.gif The cookies were certainly eaten quickly enough, so I think everyone liked it.
