How can I make chocolate chip cookie dough the right consistency to use cookie cutters on?

Question by Sofia: How can I make chocolate chip cookie dough the right consistency to use cookie cutters on?
My family keeps telling me that it’s impossible for chocolate chip cookies to be cut into shapes because the dough isn’t the right consistency. Does anyone have any recipes or tips for making chocolate chip cookie dough that IS able to be cut into shapes?

Traditional chocolate chip cookies are a drop cookie, not a rolled cookie. They are supposed to be softer. If you really need rolled and cut cookies for something, and they absolutely have to be chocolate chip, get a recipe for rolled sugar cookies and add miniature chocolate chips to it. They need to be minis so you can still roll the dough out.

Q&A: How do you make sugar cookie dough proper for use with cookie cutters?

Question by Chitters: How do you make sugar cookie dough proper for use with cookie cutters?
I want to make Valentine’s cookies for my boyfriend. WalMart has some neat holiday cookie cutters that I’d love to use, but every time I use cookie cutters, they warp when I bake them.

Either the dough’s too soft and it kind of melts, or it’s super thick and sticky and it sticks to the cutter, or my hands.

I’d love to make them by hand, without using “pop and roll” dough from Pillsbury.

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Granulated sugar or colored sugar

1. Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
2. Heat oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease cookie sheet.

You might be able to make cutters out of cardboard, but they won’t last very long (and might not work, depending on how firm the dough is). You also might have a problem finding clean cardboard.

If you’re using a firm dough, you might be able to roll it extra thick (an inch or so), cut the shape with a knife, and then cut thin slices off the shape for baking.

Another option might be to roll it out normally and cut some circles using a glass. Stack them up on top of each other with wax paper in between each one. Then, use a knife to shape the entire stack at once. This is similar to the last idea, but you won’t have to slice it off.

Keep in mind, I have no idea if any of these ideas will work since I just thought of them and haven’t tried them yet.

Q&A: Are there any recipes for peanut butter cookies that will allow me to make shapes with cookie cutters?

Question by His Angel: Are there any recipes for peanut butter cookies that will allow me to make shapes with cookie cutters?
My hubby loves peanut butter cookies and I just got some cute heart shaped cookie cutters. I want make him some heart shaped peanut butter cookies to send them to him in Iraq but I don’t know if there are any recipes that would allow me to roll out peanut butter cookie dough and make them heart shaped…because of texture and what not. Help!

Answer by southernserendipiti
It may be easier to buy a refrigerated roll of ready-made cookie dough (like Toll House or Pillsbury). Also, ready-made dough may have a few more preservatives in it that may help out the cookies during their trip to Iraq.

Good Luck!
