Letterpress for Dessert

Love letterpress? The Finer Things and FineStationery.com do! That is why these "letterpress" cookies are such a fun find. Spotted over at Creature Comforts, these cookies feature numbers that were "printed" by vintage letterpress printing blocks. How neat! These would be a great dessert item for a bridal shower when the wedding date is pressed into the cookie. Serve them at a baby shower or sip-and-see party with the baby's due date or birth date. The possibilities are endless!

If you're using actual letterpress or other printing blocks, we recommend placing a thin sheet of plastic wrap over the cookies before pressing numbers or letters into them, for food safety.
