Bench Scraper to Make Cookies? YES!

I know the title of the post may seem a little weird to you but, it is something that I want to share. I have noticed that lately that I use my bench scrapper a lot to cut cookie dough when I want a nice straight edge or a specific size square or rectangle that I don’t have a cutter for.

Super Cute Christmas Wreath Cookies via thebearfootbaker.comLast week I made these cookies and I wanted a bow to place on the Christmas Wreath but, all my bows were really small. So what did I do? I grabbed my handy dandy bench scraper and a few cutters and made my own.

Supplies for Bow Cookies Made with a Bench Scraper:

Bench Scraper
Ateco Tear Drop Cutter
Circle Cutter
You can use whatever icing color you want. If you want a deep red bow, mix a drop of brown to your red icing.

One day, I needed a tear drop shape to make these cookies and the only thing I could find was in this set. I really didn’t want to spend the money for the entire set but, since it was the only tear drop cutters I could find I bought them. I am glad I did because I use them all the time.

To make the top of the bow, cut 2 teardrop shapes with the Ateco Tear Drop CutterΒ and one circle that fits the size of the bow you want. Peace them together and bake.

  • Outline the sections of the bow and flood the tails and the inside of the bow.
  • Then, if you want to use an airbrush gun, shade the edges with warm brown airbrush gun color.
  • Let it dry for about 30 minutes.

Baby Geek Cookies via thebearfootbaker.comDo you remember these cookies? I used the bench scraper to make the rectangle for the MILK elements blocks. It works great for squares, rectangles or just a good straight line. I hope this tip helps you.
