The Christmas bakery at my house has now closed for the season, but before I pack things away I wanted to share some new cookie cutters that are especially appropriate for those of us who love cups and mugs. These cookie cutters create a little notch in your sugar cookie dough so that you can slip the cookie onto the rim of your teacup or mug. What a cute idea!
I found mine some weeks ago at a HomeGoods store. I could see there was a shooting star, a regular star and a Christmas tree, and I couldn't quite see the fourth cookie cutter because of the price sticker.
When I got home and removed the cookie cutters from the packaging, I *still* couldn't tell what the fourth one was. Can you? My husband's guess of "a Santa cap" makes the most sense, I guess, although I do think it also looks a bit like a hammer.
I love the English translation on the package, which seems a little off somehow but is still quite charming. I've seen these cookie cutters in other designs too, and I'm going to be on the lookout for some heart-shaped ones for Valentine's Day. It's never too early to start planning for holidays in the new year!
