- ...the perfect shape is nowhere to be found,
- ...you waited too long to order,
- ...or, $12.95 plus $8.00 shipping just isn't in the budget.
Here's where a template comes in handy.
Making one is simple. Sketch the design you want, trace the shape on a manila folder and cut.
Now, just place it on your dough and trace cut around it with a paring knife. (I always roll my dough on wax paper...a little extra protection for the counter tops if you're using this method.)
Yes, it does take a lot longer to cut out a batch of cookies with a template. I'm guessing about 4 times as long or more. Instead of "boop, boop, boop" with the cutter (yes, my cutters make that sound), you'll be tracing around the shape with a paring knife.
Custom cookie templates work for me. Head on over to Kristen's to see all the other Works For Me Wednesday ideas!
I want to know....how many cookie cutters do you own? And, any guesses as to how many I have?
