Create adorable gingerbread personalities with this whimsical cookie cutter and stamp set. Simply use one of the two cutters on gingerbread, sugar cookie or other flat dough, then press with one of the six character stamps. Frost, dust with sugar or serve plain for a charming treat.
This makes the best gingerbread men cookies, I had looked all over amazon, Williams Sonoma, etc, and these are the cutest. You don't even have to decorate them. The variety is nice too, 12 different people figures, something for everyone. The only gripe I have is that the little 'lid' doesn't fit tightly/well onto the cutter, when you want to stow away all the stamps inside. But, it took me a second to figure out that it was actually a lid, so it was an unexpected bonus anyway. I'll rubber band it on, to keep them together when stored. My daughter thought they were super fun, and so is decorating them for small kids - all the lines are there, just fill with frosting
I love that you have 6 different stamps to use once the cookies are cut out. You really don't need to ice the cookies to see the facial expressions or outfits. My niece loved the pom pom girl and my nephew like the guy with sunglasses.
I ordered my own set and one for my sister-in-law for a gift when my daughter raved about her set that she bought. They are so cute and allow some versatility when making the gingerbread people. I was thrilled when they arrived and can't wait to see my sister-in-law's face when she opens her present and see them. What fun!
I bought these last year to make with my 4 and 2 year olds. We used a gluten free recipe and they turned out fabulously! So much fun to stamp and decorate - my boys were thrilled. These easily replaced chocolate chip cookies last year as the favorite of the season. They've already started talking about making them again this year :) Great set!
Annual Christmas "salt dough" ornament creation party - used to make ornaments - insert a metal ornament hanger before the dough dries, and voila! a Christmas ornament (to be used as is with dyed dough, or painted)
My cousin has this set and we have borrowed them. My two young children love to decorate these cookies. The indentations make it easier for them. Sur la table offered the best pricing compared to all the rest!
Should there be a recipe with the gingerbread people cutters?
The box to my gingerbread cutters said that there was a recipe card included, but there wasn't one in the box. Was it just the recipe linked to this product page, or is there more information somewhere (like frosting instructions, perhaps)? I was surprised that the set came with no instructions at all

Best Answer:You are correct. Because some of these cutters do not include the recipe mentioned on the box, it was posted to the product page. No other instructions are provided
I would like to know the correct way of using the stamps. The stamps either stick to the dough or the imprints do dont show. which is the right way?

Best Answer:I rolled my dough for the initial cut-out slightly thicker than desired. I cut-out the gingerbread outline, generously floured the stamp, and then pressed the stamp into the cut-out using even pressure on all sections. Do not press the stamp in too hard, as it will cut through the dough. The imprints held through backing and made them easy to decorate.
Well, if they stick to the dough, your dough is probably very sticky. Try stamping some flour before you stamp dough If outline fills in either you aren't pushing hard enough or your dough is one that rises a lot. You may want to try another recipe as both problems could be your dough. Are you rolling out as specified and not leaving too thick
It took a little practice before I got the stamps to work. First I cut the cookies, then did the stamping. I found that the dough needed to be at least 1/4 inch thick for the stamps to work well. If the dough is sticking to the stamps, it may be too warm. I fixed this by dipping the stamps in flour before stamping a cookie.
I really want to like these (and the other cookie cutter/stamps), but the imprints didn't last through baking. It was fun to make the cookies, but there is nothing left of the designs that we stamped on these cookies after we baked them. Others have had success. What am I doing wrong

Best Answer:I found a recipe on the internet for non-spreading gingerbread men that required no- chilling. The cut outs worked great and the imprints baked clear and crip. The cookies were tasty with a good ginger flavor.
