Message-in-a-Cookie Holiday Cookie Cutters

Homemade cookies make a great holiday gift, whether you’re visiting friends or family, attending a big party or an intimate dinner. Pair the cookies with a nice holiday card and you have a very complete and thoughtful gift. When I noticed Williams-Sonoma’s Message-in-a-Cookie Holiday Cookie Cutters, I realized that these cutters will actually allow you to combine the holiday greeting that comes inside of a card with the cookie itself!

You can insert alphabet pieces and premade words into slots on these cookie cutters to have custom messages stamped directly into your cookie dough as you cut them out. The premade words include Happy, Holidays, Seasons, Greetings, Merry, Christmas, From – all very common holiday phrases – and there are three sets of alphabet letters included, as well as a few extra letters. The only thing you have to remember is to spell your words backwards when you place the letters in the cookie cutter so that they print out the correct way on the cookie dough. Three different holiday designs are included: a gingerbread man, an ornament and a snowflake.Most cut-out cookie doughs will work well with these cutters. You just don’t want to choose a dough with a huge amount of leavening (because it is likely to puff up and obscure the lettering during baking), so butter cookies and shortbread cookies tend to be some of the best choices. Feel free to play around with the cookies and add your personal touches with the icing after you add your personal message.

    What a great idea, having the saying right in/on the cookie!

    What a cute idea, although can’t help but think of paper messages in bread that was the business idea of the “pimp” on “Hung” on HBO – hilarious show 🙂

    I saw these while I was browsing the Williams-Sonoma Store, and the store clerk was just raving about them. What a wonderful set!!! I wish I could get some. My mother said they could be my christmas gift, but that would almost defeat their purpose :P.
    By the way, I visit your blog practically everyday, and I must say that your Pumpkin and Chocolate Layer Cake is practically a staple in our kitchen. 🙂
