Do you think that if I take my chocolate chip cookie recipe and use a flower shaped cookie cutter that after it bakes it will still look like a flower?

Probably not as much as you would like for it to. The things you can do to keep your cookies from spreading are -- bake well chilled cookies, always bake on a cool cookie sheet and don't use an airbake type of cookie sheet. I use airbake sheets for things I want to puff and plump and the other standard type for those things I want crisp and to hold their shape. Good luck to you.

You could change up your recipe to a stiffer one - more like a sugar cookie recipe that would hold its shape, but with chocolate chips and some brown sugar. You would have to experiment with the recipe a bit, and they wouldn't taste totally like a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but they could be pretty yummy!

If you don't have to make too many, you could use mini chips and then press them into a flower shaped cookie pan, I think Wilton sells them?

You could also bake the recipe in a jelly roll pan and then cut your shapes from the baked rectangle.

I've never tried these myself, but somebody recommended them in another thread on this subject:

I remember someone posted a recipe for rolled chocolate chip cookie dough a while back, but for the life of me I can't remember who... and I can't find the thread. I'll keep looking, though!

If you only need a few and have a lot of can press the cookie dough right into the METAL cookie cutter and bake it in the cuter....the cuter comes right off after it is baked and the cookie holds the shape perfectly! Whenever I bake chocolate chip cookies...which is very often, my kids each pick out a different metal cutter to make a shaped cookie. I guess this would depend on how many you need and how much time you have, but it is the best method I have found so far!
