Monthly cookie club - June 2010 - Page 4

post #46 of 122
I love your cookies, bonniebakes In fact, I'm in awe of all of you. You've inspired me to try my hand. I have no piping skills to speak of, so I turned to "sculpting" (if you can call it that). I'm not particularly original, either, because what I came up with is more hamburgers and hot dogs. Both the cookies and the icing are GeminiRJ's recipes - thanks so much, they're delicious! The "hamburgers" are made of two vanilla cookies stacked with a larger chocolate one in the middle. The melted cheese is glacé and the tomatoes, lettuce and onions are fondant. I put them all together with glacé, too. The "hot dog" buns are two cookies put together at an angle with white chocolate. The mayonnaise and mustard are glacé and the franks are fondant. What fun!

Thanks Gemini, KHalstead and Marianna ! You guys are awesome!

Adding the corn syrup does not seem to effect the drying time or the hardness in any negative way. The icing dries hard to the touch, hard enough to stack and bag without messing up the design, but stays relatively soft on the cookie - so that it's a little "Crunchy" (for lack of better word) on the surface, but soft underneath.

I actually did an experiment comparing glace and royal this past week - I posted the results in a thread just now in the cookie forum...

Marianna - those are amazing!! I love the texture and all of the fixings!! WOW!

kkitchen - we'd love for you to join us! It's just a group of us who love making cookies and want to be challenged to be creative by making cookies relating to a specific theme each month - all are welcome! The "policies" are in the first post of this thread. Each month we choose a new theme and then go to the kitchen to create... and be inspired by everyone's amazing creations!!

Marianna, my eyes just about popped out of my head when I saw your cookies!!! I would say they were awesome, but that is too weak an adjective to describe how incredible they are!!! Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!

Gosh, thanks for all the kind words, you guys. The hot dogs are Satin Ice red fondant with a touch of golden yellow and a drop or so of brown. I'd actually made some franks out of cookie dough, but they flattened and spread, so I turned them into "sausage on a stick" cookies (see photo below!). If I made these again, I'd make them smaller. The hamburger buns are about 2" in diameter and almost 2" tall, which is way more sugar than anybody needs at one time (although my family seemed to have no objection to consuming them bit by bit).

I've used anywhere from 2 tablespoons to 1/2 the liquid called for in the original recipe. All without negative results. It just depends on the effect I want to achieve....

what effect does corn syrup have when you put less or more?
