I was so excited to make cookies with the boys this year. When I saw that Chris from http://www.cheapcookiecutters.com/ was offering to review theirs, I jumped on it. Throw in over a week of 3 of us being sick one right after the other (or overlapping), then the week of Christmas, and not one single cookie was baked!!
Day 2 shows up and we are determined to make these cookies. I make the dough early in the day and it's a great texture!! I know that in three hours we'll be baking away. Three hours later, the dough is still too soft so I add flour and it gets to a reasonable consistency.
When the cookie cutters arrived I was pretty concerned that they were too flimsy for my boys to use. I thought they'd end up deformed and not in the shape of the initial design. NOT the case at all. Both boys went to town as soon as the dough was rolled and I wasn't able to give them any instructions on being careful with the cookie cutters.
Trust me, my boys didn't seem to understand the dough was thin, so they pressed nice and hard to make sure they got through. Kind of a funny site!
