ok so maybe now that I counted them I don’t have a thousand like I thought. 292! That’s a boat load!  I LOVE cookie cutters. I inherited a ton a ton a ton and have been collecting them for years from stores, garage sales, and relatives. One time I went to an estate sale and literally 2 dining room tables and an entire kitchen countertop was COVERED with cookie cutters at like 50 cents a piece. She had the randomest ones I’ve ever seen and I wanted to spend all day there. States, letters, all sorts of holiday shapes, dogs, old school plastic sets, cartoon characters, casino themes, vegetables— I should’ve taken pictures. Actually I think I did but somehow I can’t find them. Hmmm. Anyways! I went through them like 3 times and ultimately ended up buying only like 5 cutters (lame) and every day when I see a cookie I don’t have the cutter for I curse myself for not buying more. <sigh> <really?? 5??? that’s it?!?!?> <grrrrrrr>

I am obsessed with cut out cookies right now. I seem to go in phases… it started with cupcakes and then for awhile there it was cake pops, very briefly chocolate candies, and now COOKIES. BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED COOKIES!

I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at this website in particular: Bake at 350. She’s pretty much my cookie hero right now.

Anyways I have been busy making cookies for orders lately and I’m super proud of them! Here’s my latest confections
