Personalized Cookie Plates

When I was little my sister and I always used the same plates for Santa. Well, her plate was for Santa, mine was usually filled with apples for the reindeer. Best Christmas Memory: Waking up and seeing the tags for the reindeer apples outside my bedroom window on the roof. Parents take note!
I don’t have kids, but I do have cousins. They have the type of first names you won’t find on a coffee cup. I know the pain. So I got creative:

$ Store Plates
Follow the instructions on the pens. Write/draw what ever you want. If you mess up you can rub off the offending marks with a slightly damp washcloth. Let it dry a bit first so it doesn’t smear all over the plate. 

Let the plates sit until dry. Then bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. The web site says to put the plates in the oven as it warms up so they don’t break with the sudden temperature change.
Add a signature to the back before baking for an extra special touch!
