My Cookie Cutter Collection
I’ve mentioned before that I really like to bake and decorate sugar cookies. It’s so fun to create different designs, and since the cookie is the canvas, you can eat the “mistakes”… or as I call them, the ugly cookies. :) I’ve been collecting cookie cutters for years, and I now have a pretty large collection. Some of the cookie cutters were gifts and many came in sets. They are from a lot of different stores, including Williams Sonoma, Sur la Table, Michaels, Crate and Barrel, etc. I like making sugar cookies for all occasions, especially holidays and parties.
I keep all of my cookie cutters in a large plastic box, and while it’s not the most organized system (they are all just randomly thrown in there), it works for me. I don’t mind digging through the box to find what I’m looking for. The problem is, sometimes I forget which ones I have or what they look like. And when I want to make cookies for a certain occasion, I need to know which shapes I have to work with (ie.- which ones to look for when I am digging around in the box!) To fix this problem, I decided to create a photo inventory of all my cookie cutters. (Note- I did this quickly, so some of the photos are a little blurry or dark). Here are the photos!
