I have not had time to open mine and play with it yet, but the gal that was demonstrating at the store said you could do cookies, but they needed to be thin ( she said 2 nickles stacked on top of each other was the max depth). Anyone else ???
I used the Cricut to cut out these cookies http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1673053.html just last week. I loved it! I used the large Wilton rolling pin and the largest spacers (3/16" I think). They are a little thinner than usual but they still taste really good. I used the NFSC recipe on this site and Antonia74 Royal Icing recipe. Just make sure to freeze the mat once you have the dough rolled out and then get the Cricut all set up before taking it out. It cuts really well!
That is amazing! I have enough problems with the gumpaste not tearing or dragging with the blade; wonder how the cookie dough would do. Do you brush shortening onto the mat before rolling out the dough?
Do you mean the blade that comes with the Cricut Cake? Yes, I use that one. I roll the dough out to about 3/16 of an inch, basically as thick as you can get before it won't fit under the roller bar anymore.
Here's some pictures of the apple cookies while being cut and after cut.
