Stamped Shortbread Cookies

When I spotted a collection of cookie stamps on a table at my local HomeGoods, I knew that I had to try one.  Simple shortbread cookies are my favorite and I just love the way the stamp makes these look!  I purchased my stamp at the store, but I also checked out Amazon because I wanted to see what other varieties were available.  You can find the stamp here.  I used the recipe that came with the stamp and these were as delicious as they were adorable!



Stamped Shortbread Cookies

1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 2/3 cups flour
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together sugar, salt, baking powder and flour.
  3. Mix in butter and stir until mixture is crumbly.Stir in the egg yolk and vanilla.
  4. Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least one hour.
  5. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a glass or round cookie cutter to create a circle of dough.  Dip stamp in flour and stamp in the center of cookie.  Alternately, you can use a 2 tablespoons of dough to form a ball and stamp ball of dough with stamp.
  6. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake until very lightly browned around the edges, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
