Dog Cookie Cutter Series: The Scoop on Dough

It is important to use the correct type of dough when cutting out cookies with cookie cutters.

Sugar cookie dough is usually designed for cutout shapes. The package or recipe will usually specify that it is appropriate for "cutout cookies" or "rolled cutout cookies."

Years ago a friend took a tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough and tried to cut shapes from the dough with a cookie cutter.  The dough spread too much when she baked it.  Chocolate chip cookie dough is not designed for cutout cookies.

Read the directions carefully for any modifications needed for cutout cookies.  I frequently use a package of dough mix which requires the addition of a little more flour and less butter/margarine if you are going to use it with cookie cutters for cutout shapes.

We have over 80 different AKC dog breed shaped cookie cutters on our Cloud K9 website.
