CookieFilter! I have this
cookie press with the standard lot of holiday themed dies that came with it. I am either looking for a particular set of dies, or a way to create them myself.

This weekend is formal recruitment for my sorority, Gamma Phi Beta, and will be the first one I have not participated in for awhile due to my graduation. I wanted to do something nice for all the sisters, especially since it will be my little sister's first recruitment. I want to bake them cookies, and I was thinking to myself, my oh my that's a lot of chocolate chip cookies to make (at least 100, probably more), and then I remembered that I have a cookie press! This will surely make things easier, right?
As happens whenever I embark on doing a project for someone else, it quickly turns into this unmanageable beast. I now want to make cookies in the shape of our Greek letters: Gamma, Phi, and Beta. I know if I tried to form them by hand it would take hours upon hours to complete, and they would look like total crap and probably bake unevenly.
So. I want to find a regular alphabet die set, as I could use the L and the B for the gamma and beta, but what to do about the pesky phi??? Suggestions on die sets, either Greek alphabet or non, and/or how to make the phi would be greatly appreciated!
I would not be opposed to using cookie cutters to accomplish this goal, if they can be found, or made.
Alternatively, our symbols are the crescent moon, pink carnation, our gem is the pearl, and our chapter animal is the fox if anything can be found in that vein.
If you can think of another project I could do (with the help of my big sister) that you would have appreciated during the long hours of formal recruitment and is fairly inexpensive to make for 100 women, let me have it! I'm open to suggestions, and am not stuck on the cookie idea.
Good cookie press cookie recipes are welcome as well! The sugar cookie recipe I have now is good, not great in my opinion, plus the amount of sugar gives the consumer bad breath after consumption...a big no-no for recruitment!
Recruitment ends on Sunday, so my project will need to be completed soon! Help me MeFites!
