I was so excited when Curious Chef sent me a 16-piece pack of cookie cutters. I’ve seen many people online making fun food for their families using cookie cutters and I wanted to join in. Since I’m an Ambassador for Kids Cook Monday and they partnered with Curious Chef, I got the goods in the mail. Check out 10 fun ways to use cookie cutters besides just making cookies. I seriously believe that when food looks pretty, it tastes better.

  1. Sandwiches – Yep, Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches taste delicious when they’re in shapes like stars. The best part of making the sandwiches is the chef gets to eat the crusts. More for me.

  4. Pancakes – Growing up, my Dad used to make us Mickey Mouse-shaped pancakes. They always tasted better than the regular circle kind. Here we made pumpkin-shaped pancakes and they were a delight, too.

  5. Avocado Toast – The stars are the limit and this avocado toast is amazing. We sprinkled black salt on it for a little extra flavor. You can also use the cookie cutters on any type of toast.
