Pre-Chewed Gingerbread Men

bitten-gingerbread-men

I'm always on the lookout for cool cookie cutters - aren't we all? - and I have to admit I was drawn to these ABC ("Already been chewed") gingerbread men cutters. Aww! They're made by Fred Worldwide, and in Sweden, sold by Coolstuff, who sent these to me for review.

I tried them out with my favorite recipe for pepparkakor and I have to say that although they're fun, the cutters themselves kind of suck. They lack sharp edges which makes it a bit hard to get clear details, which in turn makes them a bit pointless. If you don't see the bite marks, well... they just look sort of broken. Anyway - they are rather innovative!

And the cookies are great, regardless of the shape!

I think the better way to make pre-chewed gingerbread is to actually chew them:) No equipment required.

I own these! I made them a couple years ago and brought them into my office. Everyone assumed that everyone else was just breaking pieces off, and nobody took a whole one! Every time I went by the plate, they were missing more and more body parts!
