I have more cookie cutters than I care to admit. Most of them have never been used. The cutters I do use all the time show signs of wear and tear and have some rusty colored spots. I have been known to leave a cutter or two in a sink full of water overnight and they get sposts. Ugly spots. I am going to show you how to dry cookie cutters so you don’t have this problem.
How to dry cookie cutters:
Anyway, after I bake my cookies and remove them from the oven, I let them cool off a little. When they are cool enough to remove from my baking sheet, I wash the baking sheet and cutters right away. I place the clean cutters on the clean baking sheet.
Then, I place them in the warm oven. The temperature of the oven is usually between 150-200 degrees but turned off. (It looks like my oven is on because I wanted to show you the temp.) I use the warm air to dry my baking sheets and my tin and copper cutters. I simply place them in the oven while I color my icing. When when I am done mixing and stirring, the cutters are nice and dry. This doesn’t work with plastic cutters or the ones with the grip around the top. I think even the low oven temp would melt them.
I could have saved myself a lot of time and work if I would have washed and dried it as soon as I finished using it but, I am happy to know how to save them if I do leave them in a pan full of water over night. I can clean them and don’t have to worry about using cutters that looking bad. Clean cutters make me happy.
