Creating Cookie Cutter Memories

By Sarah Correll

The first week of December is National Cookie Cutter Week. Here are some suggestions to take advantage of this fun (and fun shaped) celebration!

Host a cookie decorating contest for your kids’ friends. With cookie mix and canned icing, preparation could be a snap!

Mix up a batch of chocolate, cake mix, maple bourbon, or classic cutout cookies.

While you’re at it, make another batch of cutout cookies, this time in a jar. Layer the dry ingredients and add a tag with instructions for the rest for a thoughtful gift.

Reshape the way you think about other foods. Use cookie cutters to cut rice krispy treats, shape pancakes, or make a sandwich extra fun.

Kick off the Christmas season by decorating a gingerbread house, gingerbread men, or gingerbread pops (bonus- your house will smell awesome)!
