No one will suspect that these cookies get their artistic designs from a potato masher, a spatula, or some other kitchen utensil. These printed and patterned cookies make an excellent seasonal gift or a beautiful, seasonal dessert for guests.


  1. Roll out and cut sugar-cookie or gingerbread dough to desired shape. Use any utensil with a cutout pattern.

  2. Dust with flour, place on top of dough, and sprinkle colored sanding sugar over the surface. Alternatively, press dough with a lightly floured meat tenderizer.

  3. Sprinkle indentations with sugar. Brush off excess.
