cookie cutter stress

Help

for the past hour I have been trying to use my helicopter cookie cutter. I have managed maybe 5 without the rotor blade or the "feet" of the helicopter to breaking off.

Any tips for me? I am ready to throw the cookie cutter and the dough out the window--

Did you dip the cutter in flour first?

I use this recipe and method now for making sugar cookies. It is wonderful. Looks complicated, but it's not.

Chill the dough really well and roll a bit thicker than you usually would. Dusting the cutter with flour also helps a lot.

I use a sheet of parchment paper cut to the size of the cookie sheet. I roll the dough on the parchment and cut out the cookies, leaving the same space between them that you would when placing them on a cookie sheet. I then remove the scraps from around the cookies and slide the whole sheet onto the cookie sheet and bake.

I was having trouble with the tassel always breaking off on my grad hats. I ended up widening it out just a bit so that area was not so small. Then followed the suggestions above re chilling, moving as little as possible.
