Bake your Christmas tasty with Christmas cookie cutters

Everyone loves a Christmas cookie. To make your Christmas cookies extra-festive, why not use a Christmas cookie cutter?

The best Christmas cookie cutter shapes for Christmas

Christmas cookie cutters are the best way to achieve a clear festive shape for your Christmas cookies. When choosing which Christmas cookie cutter to use, keep in mind that your cookie batter will expand in the oven. When it does this, the cookie’s shape will warp and change. For this reason, try to choose a cookie-cutter shape with less intricate detail. Good examples include Christmas tree shapes, bauble shapes and people shapes for gingerbread men.

Gingerbread is a traditional Christmas cookie flavour. From singular gingerbread men to entire gingerbread houses it’s almost impossible to escape the warm spice of this Christmas classic. Other popular Christmas cookie flavours include sugar cookies and shortbread.
