Great cut out cookies!

Each box of cookie cutters comes with a recipe that we have tested and re-tested to make sure it produces a great cookie that combines a soft sweet texture but doesn’t spread out too much and lose the cut out shape. What are some of your secrets to great cookies that keep their shape?

    I think that recipes that don’t have baking soda in them are the best! That way they keep their shape better. By the way your cookie cutters ROCK!!!!!

    I bought these cookies cutters about a year ago and I loved loved love the recipe for the cookies. BUT upon taking it to the grocery store to remind myself what I needed I lost it! Anyway you could send a fellow scientist the recipe again? I haven’t found one that works anywhere near as well for cut outs.

    I love my science cookie cutters, however I have also lost the recipe, and I remember them being very tasty indeed. Could I please also have the recipe emailed to me?
    Thanks so much!
    Oh, and something else, a mini version of the cookie cutters would be fantastic! I find that when I make them to take into work (a lab), they get broken up and shared as people feel too greedy taking such a big cookie.

    No worries, I will e-mail the recipe to you. We are definitely thinking about smaller cookie cutters, it is something that has been on the design table for a while for consideration. We are also looking at new shapes! Look for those in 2012! Thanks so much!

    Thank you so much,
