Making cookies is one of the best things in life, especially around the holidays. There is nothing better than getting together with friends and family and bonding by baking cookies.
What stinks about cookies is that without proper cookie cutters, they come out oddly shaped. Even making circle-shaped cookies is difficult without a cutter. You wouldn't want to explain amoeba-shaped cookies to your family, would you?
Well, don't worry! I've got a way to make DIY cookie cutters out of tuna cans that's extremely quick and easy.
- Tuna cans (or any other aluminum food cans)
- Cookie (or biscuit) dough
Peel the labels off your cans and wash the outsides. Be sure to take off any glue that remains from the labels.
Remove the top of a can and take out its contents. Thoroughly wash the inside with soap and hot water.
Repeat the last step with each of the other cans. Be sure to wash them out completely. Dry with a paper towel.
Your cookie cutters are now pretty much done! You don't have to worry about being cut because the folded over edge on top of the can is smooth.
Add a dusting of flour to your countertop and roll your dough of choice out.
Place your cutters on the dough.
Cut by pressing your cutters down firmly all the way to the countertop. Then, twist them back and forth several times before pulling up.
If done correctly, nice circles of cookies (or biscuits) will be left behind, separated from the surrounding dough.
