Cups flour. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. Works like a charm. If you use glaze to base frost them, let it dry completely and the stamped pattern will show up better. Personally, they look awesome without base frosting. Just the detail is enough. BUY THESE NOW. Pics of my cookies are at anitaHelmet on Twitter.
I also used sugar cookies instead of gingerbread and I used royal icing with neon green food coloring. Came out great. See photo.
I used regular rolled sugar cookie dough, rolled to 1/4" thickness. Stamp the design first, then flip the cookie stamp over and use the cutter side to cut out the little man shape. I was able to fit about 6 cookies per cookie sheet.
Use a thin powdered sugar icing to pipe the skeletal design onto the cookie once cooled... (I put the icing into a ziploc bag, then cut off a very small corner of the bag to make an easy disposable piping bag/tip).
I really like that the cookie cutter and stamper are in one piece - less pieces to store (and lose).
Mine came with a recipe booklet. The recipes look pretty standard, but I elected to use the one posted by another reviewer because it was a shortbread style cookie (no leavening) and I thought it would do a better job of preserving the stamped lines in the dough than the baking-powder leavened recipes in the booklet.
Follow instructions provided in the booklet! If yours is missing:
Roll the dough between sheets of parchment paper.
Chill the dough before stamping & cutting.
Dip cutter/stamp in flour each time you use it.
Stamp first, then cut out to avoid distorting the shape of the cookie.
The lines will fade when you bake them, so make sure you stamp them deeply.
These look so nice you wouldn't have to ice or sugar them at all.
If you want to be precise about icing, you'll need a collection of small icing tips.
I was most successful with #01 tips.
I used Royal Icing which looks good and dries hard but (in my opinion) tastes awful. That didn't seem to stop anyone, though! My colors were pastel because I don't like the bitter flavor that food coloring imparts. Next year I might try using natural dyes--beet root powder, hibiscus flower, etc. I might also try a different icing to see if I can strike a balance between durability and flavor.
