I Love the Holidays! Starting with Thanksgiving, spending time with my family and giving Thanks for the past year. At this time of year I go into baking mode - gingerbread cookies, biscottis, and occasionally cowboy cookies and pumpkin bread. I make gift boxes for my neighbors, mailman, the multiple delivery guys, garbage and recycle men.. the list goes on and on :) 
I have been making Martha Stewart Gingerbread cookies for 21 years now, I LOVE THEM !! I have had one cookie cutter for all that time and always worried what if I lose him :( well this year Michaels has Awesome little cookie cutters for $2 or right now you can get buy 1 get second 50% off :)
I got a new little man and a snowflake they are adorable, first time I tried cutter my dough was not cold enough so it just stuck to it. After I chilled the dough again they came out perfect. I actually like these little guys more than my slightly larger cutter because  when baked they have crispy edges but soft middles, just how I like them. The only flaw with these new cutters is that the cookies are half the size as before and my boxes are huge..lol
Here are a few pics
First is my original cookie cutter, I know he is cuteπŸ’“


Now here are the new cookie cutters and what the cookies look like. **
Tip when making cookies - when cutting out first push down on main cookie cutter part then just tap button on top to give the cookies their faces
