What's one way to add interest to your cookies without carving out an entire afternoon devoted to crafting neverending sets of peonie flower fondant flowers? Using cookie texture mats.

Creating texture with these mats will save you a lot of time in the kitchen, time that you can use to sit down and enjoy actually eating the cookies you bake. Check out this video to learn how to use texture mats on buttercream icing.
