An Overview On Cookie Cutters

Did you know the average American eats 300 cookies a year? Multiply that by the number of people in your family and you’ll quickly learn it’s cheaper to make cookies yourself than to purchase them at the store. For that, you need a good set of cookie cutters.

Determine whether you’d like a starter set of cookie cutters made out of plastic or a more commercial set made out of stainless steel. Plastic cookie cutters are a good choice if your children enjoy baking with you, while the stainless steel are best when baking for a party or special event.

Choose your cookie cutter set based on the shapes available. Some sets are specific to the holidays, for example, while others have molds that are designed for a baby shower. There are even sets that have letters and numbers, so you can spell out “Happy Birthday” or make cookies that reveal the recipient’s age. Of course, if you go with a set of round cookie cutters, you can use them to make donuts, biscuits and even fondant circles.

Check to see if the cookie cutter set comes with any extras. Some offer a complimentary recipe book to give you a little inspiration, while others provide a few coffee stencils. These are used to decorate lattes and cappuccinos.

DYWM Fun Fact

Cookie cutters have been in existence for quite a long time. In fact, the Ancient Egyptians used to use them to shape dough. At that time cookie cutters were called molds.

One of the most popular cookie cutter shapes is the gingerbread man. You may be surprised to discover that Queen Elizabeth I is thought to be the first person to have the shape of a man cut out of ginger dough.

There’s actually a National Cookie Cutter Historical Museum in Joplin, Missouri. It’s supported by the Cookie Cutter Collectors Club and doesn’t charge any entry fees. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday.

The Cookie Cutter Buying Guide

  • Always review the cleaning instructions for your cookie cutters on the product care label. Some are listed as hand wash only, while others specify use in a dishwasher on the top shelf only. Many quality stainless steel models are even safe enough to be washed in the dishwasher without restriction.
  • Make sure the cookie cutters are deep if you plan on cutting something thick, like a sandwich for your child’s lunch.
  • Look at the cookie cutter’s product label to determine if it is BPA-free or made from an FDA-approved food-grade material. You don’t want any toxins leaching into your cookies.
  • When comparing the price of cookie cutter sets, you must first look at the type of material used to construct the cookie cutters. Plastic models, like the Wilton Cookie Cutters Set, 101-Piece, are always the most affordable. Next, you need to take into consideration the number of cutters in the set. The K&S Artisan Cookie Cutter Set, 11-Piece and Ultra Cuisine Cookie Cutter Set, 11-Piece have seven less cutters than the StarPack Home Christmas Cookie Cutters, 18-Piece, so you can expect them to cost a little less.
