The other day, my s.o. made some cookies for me and due to a mal-functioning oven, mistaken program time, or simply over cooking, the cookies were scorched on the bottom. She wanted to toss the batch, but I said "no way...I can fix this!"  This has probably never happened to you, but if it has, I have a solution! Using a jig saw blade, I made a scraper to 1: save the cookies, and 2:, more importantly, allow Cheryl to save face, if you know what I mean....

Step 1: Assemble Tools and Materials

For this little project, I envisioned using a hack saw or jig saw blade. As chanch had it, I had an extra jig saw blade available,so went with that.  Basic tools, i.e., drill, band saw, pencils, sandpaper, wood carving tool (or any sharp knife), glue, paint, etc.
Love your stuff creativeman. If you have a box grater, you already have burnt cookie / toast / english muffin / crumpet fixer. I use the fine grating side of my box grater to remove unwanted carbon.
Nice one! I totally need one of these, so many times my cookies end up like this.
Hey....that would make a great pumpkin-carving tool.
Well done, Cman! I could've used this the other night on my cinnamon buns. Plan to add this to my projects list.
Hey chabias, thanks for the comment...it's a small thing, but it fills a need.
This is a wonderful idea. Not only does it rescue cookies and maintain the delicate domestic dance of creator and consumer, it also might work as a drywall saw in a pinch. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, I was thinking styrofoam saw!
I think you've undersold this natty little knife. It's a cookie scraper and all round handy little knife - very nice, thanks.
Thanks for the comment: you are right, we use it to scrape veggies and peel peaches, for example!
