Intro: Custom Cookie Cutter
Valentine's Day 2005/ Problem: Cookies are the perfect gift, but the only cookie cutters left in the house are left over from Halloween.
Step 1: Find an Old Cookie Cutter
Decide which cookie cutters you don't mind getting rid of.
Step 2: Heat It Up
Heat the old cookie cutter over a burner. Tongs recommended.
Step 3: Smooth It Out
Carefully smooth out original shape using needlenose pliars.
Step 4: Shape It
As the metal cools, form the new shape using the pliars.
Step 5: A Little More
Once metal cools, it is easier to finish the shaping with your hands.
Step 6: Repeat
Repeat the process with different sized cookie cutters.
Step 7: Try Various Sizes and Shapes, Decorate and Serve
Different sized cookie cutters offset the simplicity of the shape.
Decorate with homemade frosting. Serve with tea.
