A pastry bag is a plastic or cloth bag used to hold icing or other wet ingredients when decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. A star tip is one of many different types of tips that can be used in conjunction with your pastry bag (see below for more details).

To use it: Fill your pastry bag halfway with icing (powdered sugar combined with water) and attach it securely to the top of your piping device (or simply squeeze out the icing into each cookie). To begin filling out swirls on top of your cookie, start at one side and squeeze gently as you move toward another side. You can also experiment by placing dots or squiggles randomly on each cookie for added visual interest!

You can make these cookies in any size or shape you like just by using different cookie cutters.

You can make these cookies in any size or shape you like just by using different cookie cutters. Try making a football-shaped cookie for your favorite sports fanatic, or an arrowhead-shaped one for someone who loves to hunt. If you want to make them in the shape of cute animals, try using a heart-shaped cutter in two different sizes, then stacking them together! The possibilities are endless!

As stated previously, plain wafer cookies come packaged in boxes with pre-cut shapes on them. These shapes tend to be triangular and circular; however, there’s no reason why you couldn’t use another type of cookie cutter if you wanted to make something different (the sky’s the limit!). You may also want to consider filling your pastry bag with plain wafer dough before piping it out onto baking sheets; this way they’ll all be uniform in size (and therefore easy to store).

Your boss will be impressed that you used your own recipe instead of just the store-bought kind.

Your boss will be impressed that you used your own recipe instead of just the store-bought kind. You are creative and can think outside the box, and it shows that you are a good employee, team player, and leader. Your boss will also see that they have hired a hard-working person who can lead by example in their workplace.

Your boss will think you are special now that you’ve made these.

Making these cookies is incredibly easy, so you can whip them up any time. You can make them any size or shape you like, and they will look beautiful no matter how you arrange them. They don’t require a special oven or ingredients that you may not have on hand. All in all, they are the perfect treat for everyone on your gift list!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Use whatever type of cookie cutter you like (or don’t have).
  • Make sure your cookie dough is chilled thoroughly before cutting out shapes.
  • If using another kind of cookie cutter besides wafers (cookie), consider adding a little more flour to the recipe because other types of dough tend to be drier than wafer/cookie doughs.

12 Helpful Tips For Doing Plain Wafer Cookies

I love to bake, and one of my favorite things to make is plain wafer cookies. They’re easy to make, they come out perfectly every time, and when you top them with chocolate chips or peanut butter cups or something else delicious, they’re even better! Here are some helpful tips for making sure your wafer cookies turn out perfectly every time:

Do not use margarine or other substitutes

When it comes to making wafers, butter is your best friend. Margarine doesn’t have the same mouthfeel and can taste a little… off (sorry, not sorry). The same goes for other substitutes like vegetable oil or shortening—they just don’t compare.

Olive oil is another popular substitute in cookie recipes: while it might make your cookies healthier, there are lots of other things you can use if you want a better flavor. Plus, olive oil can go rancid quickly if left out on the countertop for too long—a fact that may be especially relevant to those living in hot climates!

Is your butter at room temperature? If it’s still crumbly or solidified from having been stored in the fridge overnight (or even worse: frozen), then take out some time before beginning this recipe to soften it up on the countertop for about 30 minutes. Now let’s get started!

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat the butter with a hand mixer for about 3 minutes until it’s light and fluffy, then add in the sugar. Mix for another 2 minutes until combined.

Gradually stir in flour.

Now that you have all of your wet ingredients in the bowl, it’s time to add the flour. Add it gradually and with a wooden spoon. Adding all at once will result in clumps of dry flour that won’t incorporate into your dough as easily as they would if they were added one cup at a time. Stir until each addition is fully incorporated into the dough before adding another cup of flour.

Form dough into balls about the size of a walnut.

  • Use a small ice cream scoop to form the dough into balls. If you don’t have one, use your measuring cup or a small cookie scoop.
  • Use a teaspoon to drop the dough onto your baking sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart.

Place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. With a fork dipped in flour, flatten each cookie to about 1/4 inch thick. If they are too thick, they will be hard to bite into and won’t cook thoroughly. If they are too thin, they may burn when baked at a higher temperature which is necessary for wafers.

Place cookies on the middle shelf of an oven set at 375°F (190°C). Bake 7–10 minutes or until golden brown. If cooking more than one tray of these at a time, rotate pans halfway through baking so that all sides are evenly browned.

Flatten with a fork dipped in flour in a criss-cross pattern.

Once you have the dough flattened, dip your fork in a little flour to prevent sticking. Make sure that it’s not too sharp—you don’t want to poke holes in your wafer cookies! Also, if your fork is too wide, it might make an odd shape on the surface of the cookie. When finished with these steps, proceed to fold over each side of the dough and pinch it together as seen below:

Bake in preheated 375*F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown around edges.

The wafer cookies are best when the dough is chilled before baking them.

While you can bake these cookies immediately after mixing the ingredients together, they will have a fresher flavor if left in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. If you don’t have that kind of time on your hands but still want to give this recipe a shot, no problem! The dough can also be frozen for up to a month prior to baking. Just make sure to allow some time for it to thaw before getting started.
