Ceramic Molds

Ceramic Molds

Ceramic molds have become collectors items and new styles come and go year after year. They create beautiful cookies and also make nice wall decorations in kitchens or decorating workshops.

  • Cookie dough (must hold it’s shape when baked -recipes on this site work great)
  • Ceramic Mold
  • Cooking Spray
  • Flour
  • Flour Shaker

Mix up any dough which will hold a shape. Chili dough if required in the recipe. Allow chilled dough to come to room temperature. Spray desired mold with a cooking spray. Lightly press with a paper towel to wipe out excess oil. Dust the mold with flour. A flour shaker is a great way to control the amount of flour. Gently tap the edge of the mold on the counter to remove any excess flour. Take a piece of dough and press it into the mold. Press firmly all over, adding more dough if needed. Roll a bit of extra dough into a ball. Push dough ball against a bit of the dough in the mold. Pull the dough ball up from the mold and the dough in the mold will adhere to the dough ball and pull way from the mold. Place in oven (degree according to recipe). Check frequently as ovens and recipes vary.

The contrasting colors of cookie dough can make an impressive cookie without any icing.

Mix up at least two colors of cookie dough. You can color sugar cookie dough with food color, or mix a variety of flavors of cookie doughs that stay a constant thickness when baked. (Any of the cookie dough recipes on this web page bake well together when wanting to achieve different colors.) Press a small amount of dough into the cavity of the mold that you want colored differently. Gently press the other color on top of the first color. Follow instructions for molding using one of the three types of molds.
