Dollar store once again proved itself to be useful. I bought the skull ice cube mold there thinking I’ll use it for something. I’m sure you buy things for that purpose all the time, right?
Well anyway, it wasn’t until I skyped with Marlyn from Montreal Confections and we were talking about The Day of the Dead and I showed Marlyn the mold and she is like ” why don’t you make cookies” and I’m like “well the mold is pretty stiff since it is actually made for ice cubes. Not sure if I can get the cookie dough out.”
I didn’t dismiss the idea completely, it was fermenting.
Week after I started testing it out, first I put the dough into the mold without spraying it with the non stick spray. The dough stuck, even after freezing, sculls were stuck. So I tried lining it with the plastic wrap.That didn’t work the skull details didn’t get imprinted onto the cookie
Then I tried the Smart Balance Butter Flavor Spray and they started to pop out of the mold. Yay.
Then I baked them off and here there are. Rainbow Sugar Cookie Sculls.
Hope you like them. They taste pretty yummy too. I used my Sugar Cookie Dough recipe, minus the baking powder. I have tried them with Linzer Cookie Dough and it worked as well, so if your Sugar Cookie Dough uses powdered sugar you should be good to go.
