When I saw this in a 1956 issue of Woman's Home Companion I just knew I had to share it with you all. Isn't it darling?
The article suggests cutting out the templets and tracing them on cardboard to make it more stable when cutting the designs out around the cookie dough with a knife. While there was only the sleigh and reindeer templets provided, tree and santa cookie cutters are fairly easy to come across. Actually, I am willing to bet that all these cookie cutters could be sourced, eliminating the need to use the templet.
If anyone makes one of these, I would love to see it! Comment with a link to your photo and if I get enough, I will share them all in a future post.
