Cookie Cutter Hacks

Greetings, greetings, greetings,

Have you ever needed a specific shape of cookie cutter, looked at your collection of cutters and thought “really? I don’t have that shape! All these cookie cutters and I don’t have that one.” Well, today I wanna let you in on a little secret: just because a cookie cutter is labeled as a tombstone does not mean you can’t make it into the TARDIS.

Cookie cutter come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and with a little creativity, you can use them for more then just what they are originally intended to be. For instance, this cutter is supposed to be for making candy corn cookies, but I made it an alien.

Or this cutter, it is labeled a stocking, but it also could be a horse head or a lizard head.

This one is supposed to be Santa with his sack on his back, or is it a super awesome sci-fi ray-gun!? Pew- pew!

This is just the beginning! You can also look at your cutters and see what you can make if you cut out the cookie dough and then cut bits off of it like this gingerbread man. I cut off the lower half of the gingerbread man and used the head and arms to make a UFO.

Or this super cute hedgehog, which I made from half a leaf.

Here is an obvious on, take a unicorn cutter and make it into a horse or a zebra. If you have a unicorn cookie cutter you never need to buy a horse cookie cutter.

Cut a heart in half and you get raindrops or teardrops.

Some cookie cutter seem like there is only one or two things you can make from them, but this snowman can be made into an eight, a person wearing a hat, or a snowman in a fez.

A bat, makes an awesome mustache.

It is surprising how man profiles, and faces you can find in your cookie cutters.

The other thing you can find a lot of is butterfly wings, Like these that I made from the head and wing area of this angel.

Some cutters are really big, but you can make something much smaller from them like this huge star makes a great bow tie.

This one is supposedly a candle on a plate but with a little trimming, it can easily become birthday candles, and a mummy in a sarcophagus.

I’m not saying you will never have to buy a cookie cutter again, but with a bit of imagination, you might find that you already have the shape cutter you need.

Happy baking!
