Here is my list that I have so far and it is always looking to be expanded.
large gingerbread man
small gingerbread man
As you can tell it started out with fall and Christmas and now I am expanding to the rest of the holidays and to just animals in general. I have many other cookie cutters, but these are just the copper ones that I have so far. The boys love cookie cutter cookies and they love to help make them. It is a great way for us to spend a few hours together in the kitchen.
** By the way I do use all of them; that is one of my things. If I am not going to use it then I probably won’t buy it.
Here is my recipe for cookie cutter cookies. I have used it for years and it is my favorite. I don’t like regular sugar cookies and these aren’t as sweet as many that you get. They are better with frosting too.
Cookie Cutter Cookies
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 1/2 cup flour
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla mix until combined. Add in flour and salt mix until well combined. Then wrap tightly with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Roll out to 1/4″ and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes*
*Cooking time varies on the size of the cookie. The larger ones take 12-15 the smaller ones around 10.
