Dosey Doe : Stamped Fondant Cookies

 
There's a little place we like to frequent called Dosey Doe.
It's a coffeehouse/restaurant/bar/music hall with a Texas flair. 

So, one night as I was sipping a Shiner, listening to Two Tons of Steel, my mind went to cookies.  I thought maybe "branded" cookies would be cool....2 D's for Dosey Doe.

It wasn't until I started making them, that I realized they looked like they could be for a place called The Double D Ranch, and that just sounds like a Texas version of Baywatch.

Let me give you the low-down on stamping fondant.  Apparently, rubber stamps are NOT something you want to have come in contact with your food.  Who knew?  So, use a piece of plastic wrap between your fondant and the stamp.

To make "branded" cookies, you'll need:
  1. fondant: homemade or Satin Ice (it's good!)
  2. corn starch
  3. rolling pin
  4. stamps
  5. Americolor Chocolate Brown food coloring
  6. small paintbrush
  7. fan paintbrush
  8. tray
  9. corn syrup
FIRST....don't get so excited over trying a stamp that you FORGET TO TINT YOUR FONDANT. I intended to tint the fondant light brown to look more like wood.

Roll the fondant out thin on a corn starch-coated surface.  Cut with the same cutter as your cookies.

 
Cover the fondant pieces with plastic wrap and stamp.


Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.


Paint the letters with brown food coloring with a small paintbrush. 


Using a fan brush, paint the wood grain on the fondant using Renee's technique shown here on University of Cookie.  The only difference being that you use the food coloring straight...no added water.

Let the food coloring dry.  To attach to the cookies, use a pastry brush to apply a thin layer of corn syrup to the back. Place on the cookie to adhere.

There ya go...."branded" cookies.  Yee-haw!

I'm excited to experiment a bit more with stamped cookies!  What would you stamp?

  13. Have you tried "painting" the letter stamp before stamping it onto the fondant? I think I saw this on DC Cupcakes the other day, but they didn't focus on it, so I'm not sure if it can be done.

  14. How cute! They definitely have a 'dude ranch' feel! And I LOVE Dosey Does - I dream of their coffee on the days leading up to one of my visits. It's SO GOOD!

    P.S. If you ever see a guy named Sean McConnell playing there, check him out - he's phenomenal! (And you'll likely see me in the audience!)

I've always loved backing....I started baking from scratch about a year ago and started blogging. Check it out! I definitely want to try some of your ideas!!

  31. Hi! I am a stamper, but I also like to play with cookies here and there... I just thought I'd let you know that I am pretty sure you can stamp with clear (photopolymer) stamps right onto your fondant - so you would probably be able to get a pretty deep impression with them... if you were interested! Just thought it would save a step for you :) Your blog is awesome, I am having so much fun looking around!!

  32. How cute is that?!?! The perfect project for me when I can't decide whether to scrapbook or bake!! You rock!

  33. OMG! these branded cookies are soooo cute. Wish I had found this weeks ago, my son just graduated from High School and I wanted branded napkins, couldn't find anyone to do them to fit with our "BBQ" theme. These would have been perfect, but trust me I will be doing these this summer! Thanks so much sharing!

  34. Love the cookies- also love Two Tons!

  35. You can soak a pice of felt with black food dye (one part amerigel black with 2 parts water), and put it in a plastic food storage container, and use it just like stamping on paper! I did this to stamp a cute bride and groom image on cookies for a wedding, and then stuck on tiny royal icing flowers that I had premade in place of the bouquet.

  36. I just ran across these gorgeous cookies and wanted to say that I make food safe stamps specifically for fondant. I have dozens of designs you can personalize but also I can work from a logo or monogram. https://www.etsy.com/listing/91977418/personalized-food-safe-acrylic-stamp-for
