3 Tips For Using Cookie Cutters

If you're planning on baking cookies this holiday season, be sure to check out these 3 Tips For Using Cookie Cutters from www.drugstoredivas.net.
I went through a mustache phase. I’m not sure where the craze happened or why, but I bought mustache ring once upon a time and got mustache cookie cutters as a gift. If you’re using cookies cutters this holiday season, though, there are a few things you really need to keep in mind. I’ve really botched shaped cookies before, so I figured I would put together a list of tips for using cookie cutters.

3 Tips For Using Cookie Cutters

1. Use a rolling pin.
You want to use a rolling pin to assure your dough is even. You definitely need it to be even so the cookies bake at the same time and you don’t end up with raw ones and overbaked ones in the same batch. Also, make sure to flour your rolling pin. If you don’t flour it, the dough will stick to the rolling pin and it will be pulling at your dough.

2. Flour your cutting board.
When you’re making shaped cookies, you want to definitely make sure to flour your cutting board really well. If not, the dough will get stuck to the board. You’ll be pulling them off the board and it will ruin the shape. So you’ll have to start over.

3. Flour your cookie cutters.
Yes yes, all these tips contain the use of flour. But it’s so important. Dip the cookie cutters in flour as well. If not, the cookies will stick to the cutters and will be deformed when you place them on the cookie sheet.

Keep these tips in mind when you’re baking this holiday season.

    Dip in flour each time…and if you don’t want the cookie dough to spread too much, refrigerate the dough for an hour or two before cutting.

    We are a house full of stache lovers…..and you did not chill your dough which is why they lost shape.

    Dip the cookie cutters in flour before cutting the cookie dough and if you chill the cookie dough after you roll it out it will help keep the shape of the cookie cutter while baking

    Don’t twist the cookie cutter into the dough. Just pushand remove! Flour the cookie cutter before hand.

    Don’t wiggle the cutter while it’s in the dough. It could make the shape change and could damage your cutters.
