These were the very first wafer papers I made (and among the first cookie photos, hence the poor lighting, &c.). I used a 2.25"H cookie cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set—it seemed pricey at the time, but has turned out to be the set I use most. There are 3 different designs, and I piped a pearl-like border for them. Grownups and kids alike wanted to gobble them up. I only had one, because they were so pretty, I just couldn't!
Start with sugar cookies iced white.
Icing must be hard (about 2 days).
Cut wafer paper images to the size
of your iced rectangle.
"Glue" with light corn syrup.
Pipe dots on the edge.
The wafer papers can be gotten HERE.
