It Came From My Cupboard: Cutting Edge

by Robrt L. Pela

Do people use cookie cutters anymore? I have a big round box of them in my kitchen cupboard, but I never use the fucking things. I like to bake, but I don’t know that I’ve ever read a cookie recipe that included the direction, “Using a star-shaped cookie cutter…”

Every couple of months, I think about pitching the whole lot—the bell-shaped one; the giant heart-shaped one; the goofy Santa one that punches out pancreas-shaped cookies, or that would if I ever used it. But I never do. I know that a few days after pitching them, some cookie recipe I’m attempting will call for “a 3-inch flower-shaped cutter.”
