Also, can you use a cookie cutter after baking?
If you get a good recipe & you follow the instructions on keeping the cookie dough cold & use real butter, you shouldn't need to cut your cookies after they are baked.
Also Know, are metal or plastic cookie cutters better? In general, metal cookie cutters are sharper than plastic and will give you better results. Whichever type of cookie cutter you choose, flour it and then set it on the rolled-out dough and press straight down. Try not to jiggle or twist the cookie cutter as you use it.
Similarly, it is asked, how do you keep a cookie cutter in shape?
It holds its shape, and one major trick is that after you make your dough, you'll roll it out, cut out your cookie shapes, and then put them on a lined baking sheet and only then PUT THEM IN THE FREEZER for 10 minutes, then straight into the oven after. No cooling and then rolling. You roll, cut, and then cool!
What can I use as a cookie cutter?
Use a small, sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut any shape of cookie you like after rolling out the dough. If needed, use an aid to help cut specific shapes: Create a stencil out of cardboard or parchment, wax, or plain paper for simple shapes like hearts, shamrocks, eggs, and flowers.
