Cookie Spoons DIY

My friend Andrea came up with these wonderful pot de creme and cookie spoons for our Craft Night and we asked here to share how she did it. She developed a special recipe for this so that the cookie would stay crisp and would actually be functional when you dipped it in your pot de creme but would also taste delicious. Find all the directions below.

Materials Needed: 1 Batch of Andrea’s Special Gingersnap Recipe, Parchment paper, Rolling Pin, Spoon Cookie Cutter,

Step 1: Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper until it is very thin, about 1/16″ thick. Then place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until chilled.
Step 2: Using the spoon cookie cutter cut out the gingersnap dough and remove excess. Transfer to a baking sheet making sure the spoons are chilled and flat.
Step 3: Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes. The cookies should be crisp not bendy.

Andrea packaged the Pot de Creme in Weck Jars and then served envelopes of cookies spoons in clear cupcake boxes with the napkins folded at the bottom.

    This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” things. As a pudding fanatic I think this would make an amazing end to a meal. I will have to keep this in mind for christmas next year or many over the summer with some ice cream.

    Ridiculously, RIDICULOUSLY beautiful! (sigh.) I just got a food processor last week and I’m proud to say that after 2 1/2 years of living in Switzerland, I’ve almost replaced all of the American appliances I couldn’t bring with me that are sitting in our storage unit in Portland. Almost! Still missing that Kitchen Aid mixer. Even so, I’m feeling very inspired to make these spoons. :) Thank you for sharing. xo
