When I was a young child, my mother and grandmother would get together and make Mexican sugar cookies. It was mostly for Christmas but they'd make them for other special occasions too. I remember my mother having a whole drawer of aluminum cookie cutters that they'd use to cut out the cookies.
My mom hasn't made sugar cookies in years. So a couple of weeks ago I showed her my cookie cutter collection and told her I'd love to have hers someday. She brought over a few but said she didn't know what happened to the rest of them. I figured she's already given them to someone else or she's not ready to part with them yet.
So only a handful of these belonged to my mother. She mostly owned the copper color ones.
The one in the back with the worn out wooden handle belonged to my grandmother.
I started out keeping my cookie cutters in a small jar but through the years as my collection's grown, so has the jar.
This is where I keep them now along with a few plastic ones. In a 2 gallon glass jar. There's plenty of room for all my cookie cutters plus a little extra room for growth.
I love having these in my kitchen where I can look at them everyday. They're too pretty to just be kept in a drawer. It's important to surround yourself with the things that you love.
Do you collect cookie cutters? If not, what do you collect? Would love to hear from you!
