I am not sure how I amassed such a large amount of cookie cutters.
I must be a collector at heart.
I seem to have one for just about any occasion. I have quite a few of these nesting ones. If I ever need a star, I will have just the right size. I actually used these to make cookie Christmas tree ornaments. I have the entire alphabet as well as special words, like this "LOVE" set.
Here's a bunch of mini cutters. They are especially nice for garnishing things. You could take sliced cheese and cut it into little tulips to top a spring salad. Have I ever done that?
Not in the past ten years.
But you never know when I may want to again.
See the little clear things in the unopened package? That is a set of mini sandwich cutters. As you can see, I use them a lot. (grin)
This cutter represents the worst type possible. Have you ever tried to remove cookie dough from one of these? I am not likely to make a cat on a fence cookie anytime soon.
Do you think I will throw it away?
Not on your life!
These Wilton Comfort Grip cutters are my favorite. They are not too detailed, are easy to cut, and give a nice clean release. They are large and at least 1.5 inches thick, which makes them good for cutting all sorts of things. I have used them to cut sheet cake and brownies. They can also be used to make fancy sandwiches.
I store all the cutters in plastic bags or in these big jars so they don't collect dust. I have one big deep cupboard that all of this fits nicely into.
I wonder just how many cookie cutters I have...
Who wants to take a guess?
I will pull them all back out and count them this weekend when I use them to make cookies.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
