Christmas Sugar Cookies

Cookie Cutters - Candy Cane & Gingerbread Man

How about this for homemade cookies from start to finish: print your own cookie cutters, make and bake sugar cookies, then frost and decorate the delectable treats!  That's exactly what we did at GorillaMaker headquarters.

Cookie Cutters - Christmas Stocking

Our team knows that it's not good enough to just get a good 3-D print. In this case, your printed cookie cutters also have to produce a great finished product.  Otherwise, what's the point?

Baked Cookie Trio

Veteran baker and GorillaMaker staffer, Christine Luken, road tested the cookie cutters during her annual Christmas cookie baking marathon.  Here's her verdict: "The stocking and the gingerbread man turned out great.  The cookie cutters left a nice crisp design on the cookies, so you have the option to frost them or not.  The candy cane cutter was problematic because the grooves for the imprint were too deep.  Several times the dough stuck to the cutter despite heavy flouring.  The resulting candy cane cookie was thinner than the others, so it came out over baked."

Frosted Stocking

So, a big thumbs up for the gingerbread man and stocking 3-D printed cookie cutters and a thumbs down for the candy cane.  If you'd like Christine's Famous Christmas Sugar Cookie recipe, you can find it HERE.
