   National Cookie Cutter Week!
When is National Cookie Cutter Week?
The first week in December is Cookie Cutter Week.

What is this Holiday for?
This holiday is for honoring and enjoying the fun use of cookie cutters all week long. There's nothing as fun as decorating a cookie! Let today be the day you buy a new cookie cutter and enjoy using it by baking homemade cookies. Let this week be the week you sit down with your kids or grandkids and have some cookie decorating fun. Memories last a lifetime so make some cookie memories for your family. Let today be the day you sit down with a tall cold glass of milk or hot coffee, a large plate of fresh cookies, and have no guilt at eating them all up.

Origin of this Holiday?
"National Cookie Cutter Week was started in the mid 1990's by Paula Mullins from KY.  It was started for the members of the Cookie Cutter Collector's Club.  Paula registered it and designed a cutter for it each year.  Lyn Linder took it over around 2007 when Mullins decided she no longer wanted to do it."  Lyn Linder emailed us and said "Check out the National Cookie Cutter Collector Club's Musuem in the Joplin, MO Musuem Complex.  It, as well as the rest of the musuem is a pleasant surprise...great experience...thanks ,lyn"

Ron Cunningham -appointed 2013 cutter week chairman replacing Lyn Linder. Cutter will commemmorate one of the many anniversaries this year. All cutter week cutters are displayed at the National Cutter Historical Museum in Joplin.

What is a Cookie Cutter?
A cookie cutter is a tool to cut out cookie dough in a particular shape.

Types & Variations

Other Cookie Cutter Uses
Besides their defined use "to cut shapes out of dough", they can also be used but not limited to for cutting and shaping tea sandwiches.

Cookie Decorating Techniques
Many decorating techniques used today do not require elaborate cookie cutters. The simplest of shapes can be quite versatile in serving various themes. For example, a star-shaped cutter can be used for Christmas, 4th of July, and messages of congratulations. A circle can be decorated as a sun, ball, flower, spider web, or smiley face.
