  • I often bake cookies for the kids, they eat shop bought cookies too but definitely prefer my home baked ones and I find the process of making them is very therapeutic when I'm having a rough day
  • Of course, this means that from twelve cookie cutters you're only making six cookies but that's not an issue really as they look so fabulous that it's fun to knock up a few batches and arrange them on a plate for when the kids get home from school
  • They all look absolutely fantastic once baked, although my absolute favourite has got to be the seal which has flippers instead of legs (obviously) and even has a ball balanced on the end of its nose - I personally think this one looks the best and it's definitely the easiest to constuct as the seals body simply lies on top of the flippers and it's not fiddly in the slightest
  • It's important to rinse them properly as something about the plastic causes them to hold onto the smell of the detergent, I only noticed after realising a batch of my cookies tasted very slightly of lemon washing up liquid - this isn't ideal so now I'm fastidious about the rinsing cycle

      I often bake cookies for the kids, they eat shop bought cookies too but definitely prefer my home baked ones and I find the process of making them is very therapeutic when I’m having a rough day. I have literally dozens of sets of cookie cutters, my most recent edition being this set of twelve animal cutters from the NordicWare brand.

      They are made of plastic and are a bright sunny yellow color, the beauty of them being that they not only give an outline of a generic animal shape but the cutters are also designed to add features and shaping to the top of the cookie. This is great news as it means that rather than having a simple lion shaped cookie, you have the facial features and swirls of mane which you can


      either decorate with frosting or leave plain for an equally effective cookie. This in impressive in its own right, but when NordicWare have revamped the idea of a 3D cookie and created ‘legs’ from six of the cookie cutters so that after baking and cooling you can slide these legs into a pre-shaped gap on the animal and the cookie will stand up on its legs to create a REAL 3D masterpiece! Of course, this means that from twelve cookie cutters you’re only making six cookies but that’s not an issue really as they look so fabulous that it’s fun to knock up a few batches and arrange them on a plate for when the kids get home from school.

      They are very easy to use, the only fiddly part comes when you balance the ...


      • body of the animal onto the legs - and once you’ve got the knack even this isn’t fiddly and it becomes a whole lot of fun working out which legs are for which animal and putting the cookies together! The thing that amazed me, and still does really, is how stable the cookies are when they are standing up - the legs are perfectly balanced and providing you’ve assembled them properly the animals all stand without a wobble, even the tall giraffe which I assumed was not going to be as stable as the lower cookies such as the seal and the lion.

        From this set of cookie cutters you’ll be able to make a lion, monkey, elephant, rhino, giraffe and seal. They all look absolutely fantastic once baked, although my absolute favourite has

        got to be the seal which has flippers instead of legs (obviously) and even has a ball balanced on the end of its nose - I personally think this one looks the best and it’s definitely the easiest to constuct as the seals body simply lies on top of the flippers and it’s not fiddly in the slightest.

        All of the cookie cutters are diswasher safe, but as they’re used only with raw dough I find a wash in hot soapy water is all they really need. It’s important to rinse them properly as something about the plastic causes them to hold onto the smell of the detergent, I only noticed after realising a batch of my cookies tasted very slightly of lemon washing up liquid - this isn’t ideal so now I’m fastidious about the rinsing cycle.
