The smell of freshly baked cookies is in the air as October 1st marks National Homemade Cookie Day! Nothing compares to the scent of a freshly baked cookie straight from the oven, or the dunk of a warm cookie in cold milk; So when we heard this sweet tradition was coming up, we just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to share our favorite cookies with you.
Just recently, our friends over at the Fred & Friends blog posted some recipes to use with their various cookie cutters, and we think these cookies will be perfect for your next get together. So grab the milk, dust up your best rolling pins, and let’s take a look at some of our favorite cookie cutters along with their homemade recipes.
When using the Letter Pressed Cookie Cutters, you’ll be able to make some sweet treats that really have something to say. These cutters are double sided, so you punch out the shape on one side, before turning the cookie over to press in the letters. The cookie cutter kit includes all 26 letters of the alphabet, as well as an ampersand and an exclamation point. Use Fred & Friends sugar cookie recipe to create the perfect batch of buttery sugar cookies with mouth-watering hints of vanilla.
Ever wonder how you would look with a mustache? Well wonder no more! And, you don’t even have to grow this one. Simply use the Munchstache cookie cutter to create the perfect chocolate mustache cookies featuring rich cocoa powder, a hint of vanilla and even fresh espresso! Like the Letter Pressed Cookie Cutters, the Munchstache cutters are double sided. Use one side to cut the shape, before flipping it over to stamp the details. Once the cookies are baked and cooled, invite guests over to try these delicious mustaches on for size.
Finally, Fred & Friends offers their Gingerdead Cookie Cutters Set for the gingerbread cookie fan. These cutters are shaped like Gingerbread men but a little scarier than your average gingerbread man! The stamps are double sided, one side for shaping out your gingerbread man, the other side to stamp the skelton bones on his body. Create tasty and ghoulish gingerbread men using Fred’s gingerdead cookie recipe; featuring savory butter, plenty of ginger, cinnamon, ground cloves and grandma’s molasses. Use different colored doughs and frostings to create scary treats for friends and family!
