Matchstick Cookies

I saw these mini matchstick cookies from SprinkleBakes and had to try them myself!

It took me several rounds to get these little cookies the size and shape I wanted, but I finally got some I was happy with. You have to make the dough, freeze, cut, freeze, and bake immediately to help them hold their sharp shape…

It would have been faster to buy a package of ready-to-go white matchstick boxes, but by the time I decided I was going to go for it, I was a little short on time to order and hand out by Valentine’s Day like I planned (but not soon enough :P). So I ended up just buying a package of matchstick boxes at Fred Meyer, pocketing the matches and cleaning/altering/decorating the boxes for my own use with white paper and washi tape. I had more cookies to share, but the box alteration time set my limit for sharing to a special few 😉
