Baking cookies for Christmas is a fun tradition, and should definitely be part of your family’s Christmas bucket list. Of course, having the kids cut each individual cookie takes a ton of time, and holidays are about relaxing. Thankfully, Target has solved this problem for us with an enormous cookie cutter.
How Many Shapes Will It Cut Out?
It should make 24 cookies at once. You read that right. You can cut two dozen cookies in about a minute, thanks to the metal construction and reasonably sharp cutter edge. It’s part of the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection, which Chip and Joanna Gaines own, so you can expect good quality.
The cookie cutter includes festive shapes, like Christmas trees and stars, as well as a handful of geometric shapes. We’re seeing three small diamonds, plus five shapes that could be decorated as holiday houses.
The best part? This cookie cutter only costs $14.99. It sold out last year—and we expect to see the same mad rush before Christmas 2019. Sounds like it’s time to make a Target run!
