My Cookie Cutter Collection

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!

    I love the fall cookie cutters! I just bought a bunch of tin autumn leaves in preparation for fall decorating. They are so pretty, I may keep them out all year. Do you have pictures of any leaf cookies from years past?

    Wow, what a collection. I liked them sorted rather than in the box.
    What fun to have so many!
