Instructions: Roll out cookie dough to about 1/2" thickness. Using a postcard or an index card as a guide, cut the dough into rectangular shapes. Using a spatula, carefully lift the rectangles onto a cookie sheet. Bake according to the recipe or package. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on racks.
Cover tops of cookies with Betty Crocker White Decorating Cookie Icing and let dry completely. Using Betty Crocker Easy Writer Food Decorators or Cake Mate® Classic Writing Icing, write a note to a friend or family member. Make it official by drawing a mailing address and postage stamp in icing. Once complete, hand deliver to your loved one!
1. To make rolling cookie dough easier, chill dough in the fridge for a bit before rolling out. Once dough is cool, place it between two pieces of plastic wrap or wax paper so it does not stick to the rolling pin.
2. Simplify this project even more by making dough ahead of time. Roll dough out between plastic or wax paper, and put in the freezer for up to a week, or in the fridge for a couple of days. If dough is frozen, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before cutting into postcard shapes.
3. To make this project easy for small kids, bake and ice the cookies ahead of time. Set up a table with decorating supplies, and let the kids have an edible arts and crafts project!
4. These cookies could be a very cute gift for a friend or family member. Make one for Valentine's Day, Father's Day, Mother's Day, birthdays, etc. A homemade postcard sent from the heart!
5. Postcards come in different sizes. Use a smaller template if you want to make a few different ones, or use a larger template if you want to make one or two big ones. Double the cookie dough recipe if you want to make a bunch of party invites or a pile of postcards.
