A Step-by-Step Guide to Using Brightberry Cookie Cutters

Before we dive into the recipe, let's ensure your cookies are picture-perfect:
Roll out your cookie dough on a clean, dry surface to the desired thickness.

  1. Place the cutter with the embosser on top of your dough.
  2. Gently press down the embosser to imprint the festive design. Remember, a gentle touch is key – you want to leave an impression, not press all the way through.
  3. Now, press the edges of the cutter to shape your cookie.
  4. Carefully remove the cutter and then the embosser to reveal your beautifully designed cookie ready for the oven.
