How many cookie cutters do you have? - Page 2

post #16 of 45
If you all make so many cookies with all of your many cutters.....what reciepe do you guys use??? I just tried the No Fails with Antonia74s icing....little dry to me and not a lot of flavor but I did only use vanilla...would almond extract have made them better?? Thanks for the info about the onesie cutter!!!!

I probably have about 150. I love the flowers best I think but the star is a close 2nd. I would love to have a better way of organizing them and I have a vision of the boards with all the holes in it and then putting those things used to hang drapes in the holes on the board then you could easily hang your cutters. Hmmmm now where can I get dh to hang that board fo me??

I have 1400 cookie cutters!icon_biggrin.gif I know a lady that has over 39,000. She is Joyce Moorhouse....her husband Al Moorhouse makes them too. He started because she collects them. The most I have paid is $19.00 for one. If I was made of money I would buy Simon's Cutters which can be around $90.00. My friend Jan just had his elf one named after her!!!! Making cookies today by the way!!!

I love the No Fails with almond extract. They are my favorites. I've done them all way.

Another favorite of mine is "Melissa's Gingerbread" from the Martha Stewart Christmas book. It is like no other, a little putzy to make, but so tasty and strong.

MaryJane,

I recently ran across Simon's cutters and fell in love with a few. I just couldn't justify the cost. But believe me, they are in the back of my head. Especially the wedding cake on the tiered platter. I can picture it now...................... And they are huge cutters too.

Okay, I have to show this post to my DH who thinks my couple of hundred cutters is too much.(LOL) I catalog mine too so I don't buy repeats. I store mine in colored plastic shoe boxes. My favorites are those that have multi uses-i.e. the candy corn shaped one that I use for my penquins, draculas, etc...and the pretty copper leaves and snowflakes I have.

Yankeegal, you must have been reading my mind!!! I collect them, too, and, yes, my darling hubby seems to think I have too many. I haven't counted lately, but I would estimate I own somewhere in the 300 range. icon_surprised.gif [MaryJanesGoodies, YOU ARE MY IDOL!!! 1400!!! icon_surprised.gif I can only aspire to be like you!!!]

Like many of you, I also keep mine stored in clear plastic boxes, but the sweater size. They are sorted by style/type/event (i.e., all the Valentine's Day -- hearts, lips, cupids, etc. -- are together; pine trees together; snowflakes [my favorites to look at, but not to cut out icon_lol.gif ], etc.). Boxes are labeled on the ends with a chart of the outlines of each, but reduced in size on a copy machine (helps me pick them out quickly).

Thanks for the spreadsheet idea!

I like to buy them at a great little shop in town that carries some less-than-usual (to the lay person) ones. I always look at garage sales. I shop online for them whenever I can. icon_cool.gif

The best thing about them? They're small, unique, and don't generally cost too much (although I think I paid $17.95 for a copper scarecrow several years ago from somewhere, but I can't recall). But BEST of all, they're easy to "sneak in" to the house and hide from hubby until I take it out and use it. He always says, "I didn't know you had one like this!"

Of course, I just smile and say, "oh, honey, I've had that for quite a while now"! icon_rolleyes.gif

Cookie cutters ... they're useful, adorable and SO ADDICTIVE!!! icon_lol.gif
The Client doesn't generally understand the creative process we go through to make them a gorgeous confection ... it really IS more than "just" butter, eggs, and flour!

Just a newborn compared to the rest of you guys. I have only about 50. However, I am always on the lookout for more.

I have around 200. I have metal, copper, and plastic cutters. I started out with the plastic cutters and then started ordering on the internet because I haven't found a store that sells lots of cookie cutters around here (if anyone knows of a cookie cutter place in Miami, besides Michaels, please let me know). My favorite cookie cutter is my copper ballet slipper. I have a picture of the cookies I made with it in my photos.

Gosh...here I thought I didn't have that many...I have another friend who has 7000!
I keep mine in ziplock bags by theme.....Cinco De Mayo, Fantasy, Beach, Trees, Space, Retro etc. etc. (I must have 7 bags of Halloween!) Then they are stored in decorative big ice buckets above my kitchen cabniets as I have a big gap between the cabniets & the vaulted ceiling.
I inventoried them a year ago...as well as my many cake pans & candy molds.
Antique Stores have alot of cookie cutters for very inexpensive or if you join a few Sugar Art Clubs...eventually you will run across someone who is selling off their stuff & you can get alot of supplies cheap that way!
I am a member of the National Cookie Cutter Collectors Club & the California CCCC. (As well as many other clubs)
I use a basic sugar cookie receipe that I change up with melted chocolate & different flavorings like....Orange, Lime, Lemon, Almond etc.
My cookies are like "crack" as I've been told many times!!!
I started out making cakes & candy....but the past 2 years have been all about Cookies!!!
I'm making 2 Halloween Cookie Bouquets for a demo I'm doing for Sweet Arts Of Orange County on Monday. It's officially about stamping on fondant.
Hugs to all the cookie monsters out there!!!! I know I'm one....LOL!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thread Starter 
Has anyone purchased the 40 piece Halloween cutters from Michael's?

I bought it last night and there is a weird shapped cutter....I cannot figure out what it is!! I don't have a camera right now, so I can't a picture. It kinda looks like it could be logs on fire.

Anybody know??

And where can I find Simons Cutters?
