This is the process I follow to get the best results using my range of Geometric Multi-Cutters. You will need a good no-spread cookie recipe. As the pieces are small and some have sharp angles, you want them to keep their shape so they fit back together nicely after baking.
Chill your dough before rolling out to desired thickness on a piece of baking paper or onto a baking mat. I usually let my dough sit out for a few minutes before cutting - if your dough is too firm it will be harder to get a clean cut and remove the cutter. Place the cutter on your dough and press down firmly all over the cutter to ensure you get a clean cut. Give the cutter a gentle wiggle to make sure all the pieces are cut through. Remove the excess dough from around the edges of the cutter.
Very gently, lift the cutter away from the dough. If the pieces start lifting with the cutter gently push them out with your fingertips or a soft brush. Without moving any pieces, transfer the cut dough onto a baking tray and place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Even if your cookie recipe doesn’t normally require freezing before baking, this step is recommended to make sure none of the shapes are distorted prior to baking.
Remove your dough from the freezer - the pieces should now be firm enough to move and spread out on your tray without distorting them too much. You can now place them in the oven to bake. I use a perforated baking mat when baking as I find this helps reduce cookie spread and it also gives the cookies a nice, even bottom.
Once your cookies are baked and cooled, the real fun starts. Assemble your decorating tools and get creative! These cutters are so versatile, and the design options are endless. The cutters will suit those that decorate with either Royal Icing or Fondant, and I love using various cookie stamps, edible images, and sprinkles to decorate my Geo sets with.
These cutters are designed to allow your cookies to be served as a platter, or as a set to be gifted. If you are packaging your cookies, you can use a heat sealer to seal all the cookie pieces together in one large bag; this will keep them fresh for longer.
