6 Unexpected Uses for a Heart Cookie Cutter
We all have cookie cutters in our cupboards in a variety of shapes & sizes - but have you ever used them form something other than a fun biscuit shape? Here are 6 unexpected ways to use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make your Valentine feel extra special.
1. ♥ Pepperoni Pizza
Perfect for any pizza lover - using a very small heart cutter, cut little hearts from discs of pepperoni, then scatter like meaty confetti on top of a plain cheese pizza. Quick, simple and a sure fire winner!
2. ♥ Jammie Dodgers
OK, so this is still technically a biscuit so its admittedly a pretty traditional use - but used in an interesting way to reinvent a family favourite. Use a small ♥ cutter to cut the shape out of the top biscuit before sandwiching together, sweet to eat and to look at!
3. ♥ Toast
Gently push the blunt side of a heart cookie cutter into the bread before toasting, being careful not to go all the way through - when toasted the heart shape will shine forth - as will the admiration for you, from your loved one.
4. ♥ Mini Cakes or Brownies
Bake a sheet cake or a pan of brownies, once cooled use a medium sixed heart cutter to cut out a plate full of mini bite sized delights.
5. ♥ Cocktail Garnishes
Use a small heart cookie cutter to cut shapes out from strawberries, slices of melon, apples, pineapple or any other firm fleshed fruit, mount them on a cocktail stick and voila - you have an instant Valentines Cocktail! (Add a little shimmer and you have a whole party in a glass going on!)
6. ♥ Eggy Bread
Use a large heart cookie cutter to cut the shape in the centre of a slice of bread. Fry the bread and drop an egg into the hole, turn over once the egg has firmed up sufficiently.
