Tips on using cookie cutters, please!

Aloo0628 | Dec 13, 2006 04:02 AM

I've made tons and tons of cookies, but I've never before ventured into the realm of cookie cutters, so I thought I'd solicit my fellow ChowHounders for some advice before I make my maiden voyage. I have cookie recipes that I love and plan to use, but am wondering if you have any tips on things such as thickness of dough, specific types of cookie cutters, etc. that I should know about. Ideally, I'd like to make:

Sugar cookies shaped like candy canes
Gingerbread men
Choc Chip cookies shaped like xmas trees (this is the one I'm really concerned about...will the chocolate chips mess up the shape? Should I use mini choc chips or something like that to help maintain shape?)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
