How could I pass this up when this madness only cost $1.00 at the Joan of Arc thrift shop! I don’t even bake but I am hoping that someone at Willis Wonderland will put it to good use.
This is insane! Each cookie cutter fits into a groove that holds it on the wheel!
The main piece of this fantastic set.
This is my kind of cooking tool! Just slap on the attachments and start to roll out an entire cookie village. Seems like this could lead to disaster as dough clumps up, which is just the kind of cooking collision I excel at as I would turn the mishapen mound into some kind of eible ornament or something. I really can’t imagine this thing worked that well as it’s such a genius idea it would be ubiquitous by now if it did. But I am SO not the kitchen authority here, only the kitschen authority.
With a name like Kaplan/Aronson I was expecting dreidels and menorahs. Actually, this cookie cutter looks like a lot of fun.
I can tell you the problems with this thing., because I have one that rolls out Lego-Cookies. You have to get the dough just right, or it sticks in the cookie-cutters…and you can’t get it out without it falling apart. Then, if the dough is not thick enough, the cookies lose all their shape when baked and turn out as shapeless, flat, lumps.. so you have to cut the dough when it’s quite nearly frozen… there’s just a lot that can go wrong with this thing.. hehe. You have to experiment and get the right dough and the right consistency or your cookies are doomed to fail. It works, but it’s definitely NOT a time saver. I actually had a lot better luck using mine on fondant.
I knew it! I’m so not a cook but instinctually felt that if this thing worked perfectly it would be in every kitchen in the world.
It’s in the “A” box.
Yippee! Merry rolling to me!
You better roll girl!
