I don't know if it's just me, but I don't see a picture. Do you have a link?
I don't know what is wrong with the pic, here is a link to the first one I could find.
Okay, now I know what you're talking about. If you use a recipe like a shortbread recipe (or the NFSC should work) your design should come out fine. Be careful not to roll too thick or the dough will get stuck inside the design.
Sorry, don't have any pictures. From time to time there is a lady on Ebay called, Nothinbutcrumbs. She does amazing work using that type of cutter. She posts pictures of her cookies with the cutters. Unfortunately, there isn't anything on there now.
anyone else have tips, suggestions?
Sorry, but can't see the picture and can't acces the link...
I spray them with Pam, and then dip in flour. Be sure to bang any clods of flour out of the cutter before you cut any cookies.
I use them at Halloween and Christmas, the cutters are so nostalgic for me.
Are they like what they call patchwork cutters?
Or what you could do is bake the cookie and then use this cutter on MMF and put it on the cookie. That would be really cute.
they're not patchwork cutters they're just regular plastic cookie cutters with some of the "details" outlined for you already.......I have some christmas and easter ones too and they do work with the nfsc recipe
Dip them in flour before you use them to cut the dough. I grew up using these and while they aren't quite as easy as the open cutters since dought gets stuck in them they do work fine most of the time. You do have to roll the dough out to the right thickness, too thick it won't cut right and will get the dough stuck but if it's too thin you won't get the design imprinted.
My mother had TONS of them and she has given all of us some.
