I had one of these and it was a royal pain. You could try dredging it in flour before cutting the images. Mine always made one okay and the others stuck or fell out before I wanted them to.
Let us know what works best. I still have mine.

What if you roll the dough over the cutter?

I would mist the cutter with a bit of Pam (non-stick spray) before attempting to cut with it, just to help the dough to release from the cutter.

I hate cookie cutters like those. When they work right they work great, but you have to be really careful to get your dough rolled to the perfect thickness and it has to be the perfect consistency so it can be rolled without cracking but not so soft that it sticks in the cutter. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I'd so much rather cut four separate cookies than stress out working with one like that.

Oh, another thing is if your cookie dough spreads at all you will lose the image the cutter makes; you have to use a non spreading dough otherwise all you'll get are outlines anyway once they're baked. HTH!

Not sure what cutter you are talking about, but if it is one with inprints of the design like faces etc. roll out your cookie dough. Then put a piece of plastic wrap over the dough, push in your cutter and slightly wiggle to cut the dough, this will not cut the plastic and will leave an impression in the dough. Just make sure to roll the dough on parchment the size of your baking sheet and use a small paring knife to remove the excess between cookies. You can even use the plastic wrap on top of your cookie dough when rolling as well and no sticky mess on your rolling pin. LOL. icon_biggrin.gif

I bought similar cookie cutters and they stuck so much icon_sad.gif I'm gonna try the plastic wrap trick, since when I was trying to sleep, I thought of it but decided it probably won't work. so thanks nesweetcake for suggesting it. I have left over dough so I can try it.

Should the dough be rolled thin? I found the thicker the dough, the harder it was to remove the cutter. icon_sad.gif

Did you get this cutter at Target? I got the Halloween one and honestly it didn't work well. In fact I gave up on it and decided not to buy the xmas one when I saw it. But.... now I will try the advice you all gave cupcakeshoppe. Thanks for posting this question!

I am going to agree with the misting of the pam on it! It will work better that way for you. I am going to guess on this but don't be surprised if you loose the details in the baking process!

I used the recipe by Penny (?) I think. And the ones that survived (came out well LOL) baked up pretty nicely, with all the details. But it was too puffy for me so I'm gonna look for another recipe.

A trick I did my old ceramic cookie molds might (might) work. I would take some dough, push it in by hand, remove and them sprinkle with flour and tap it out. Then try it. Might be a bit of pain with this design though, but I thought I would pass the idea on, just in case.

Also, make sure that your dough is nice and cold! That will help. NFSC is the way to go with that type of cutter. Make sure that you get a good thickness, but not as thick as you would a regular cutter.

Tracy... I didn't quite get it. First you put the dough into the cutter, then take it out then sprinkle with flour and then tap it out? I'm confuzzled. Sorry it's almost 2.30 AM and I should be sleeping...
