The cookie cutters are a useful accessory to give shape to the dough for cookies and to create graceful shapes to decorate: they allow you to obtain regular shapes from the spread dough and are essential for obtaining cookies, biscuits or decorations with marzipan.
The main types of cookie cutters
The classic cookie cutters have a metal shape, usually in stainless steel and a variable height between 2 and 5 cm, fixed, to be sunk into the dough well laid out and pulled in order to obtain numerous shapes. However, there are numerous variations with the same function: the silicone and plastic cookie cutters are the most common. Finally, the pressure or expulsion cookie cutters should also be listed, which in the first case, thanks to a mobile layer to be placed on the biscuit, allow printing on its surface an inscription or design without cutting it completely, in the second instead of obtaining shapes to “unhook “directly.
