Here's a way to display my cookie cutters. Some are gifts, some are ones I bought, some are my mom's, and some are my grandmother's. I can't tell you what wonderful memories they all hold for me, as I can remember why I bought or received every one. I get lots of compliments on them, too!

While preparing dinner last night, I decided on something different in the presentation of the meal. I took slices of Kraft cheese and using a frog cookie cutter, I cut the cheese and placed one frog on each plate. I surrounded each frog with vegetables, salad, and meat and served the meal to my family. Now my family can say they have eaten frog legs.

When my children were home, we were on a pretty tight budget. I would save the white foam meat trays and use the cookie cutters to cut designs in the meat trays.

Place cookie cutters on top of frosted cakes or cupcakes then pour candy sprinkles or colored sugar inside the shapes. Remove the cookie cutters and you have a nice decoration.

Make paper characters - either ink bottoms with magic marker or ink pad. Then apply to paper or paperboard the character outline. Then decorate to your taste. From there you have got yourself a movable figure or a refrigerator magnet and whatever else you may come up with. . .

Use your cookie cutters for something other than making cookies. Small cookies cutters can be used to press shapes (heart shaped for instance) out of carrots, cucumber coins, apple slices and any other vegetable that can be sliced thinly or flatly.

Use cookie cutters for mobile designs and then create a mobile or use them in kids play doh. My son loves them to draw also - you draw the outside shape.

Seasonal cookie cutters make great festive napkin rings and can be a little party favor, too. Just add a bright bit of ribbon or raffia.

If you are as bad as I am at decorating cookies, try using a cookie cutter as a "stencil". Choose a glass/cup/mug that is wider across than your holiday shaped cookie cutter. Use the glass to cut your dough into circular cookies. Once baked and cooled, place your holiday cookie cutter on top of the cookie and put icing inside the cutter. When it firms up, lift the cookie cutter off and your cookie will be decorated perfectly.
