I’m pretty sure that my cookie cutter collection and obsession stems back to making gingerbread men with my mother and fluted cookie cutters squishing their way into scone dough on a Sunday afternoon in my childhood.
I brought into our marriage a collection of traditional circle cookie cutters and a small heart and over the last four years it has become this, well actually this is only about half of it. I also have my Christmas, Easter, letters, numbers and symmetrical shapes. Yeah.
Every year someone buys me a bunch of cookie cutters for my birthday or a friend will send me something fun, like a cowboy because they know the ridiculousness of a cowboy shaped cookie will make me laugh. Oh and Mr Thrifty, always one to think of his stomach, will buy me them because it means he is more likely to get fed a tasty, sweet treat.
