It sounded easy enough, bend a thin sheet of metal into a recognizable shape to make my own cookie cutter. Well, it turns out that despite my best efforts, metal is HARD to bend without any fancy tools. I used a piece of thin scrap sheeting from the metalwork class at school which maybe was a bit too thick. I had originally planned on forming a goat shaped cookie cutter but it was proving to be quite tricky so I settled on a basic owl which can also double as a goldfish if needed!
While I felt happy with the results of my Owl, I didn’t really feel like making a whole batch of cookies to show him off so I whipped up a quick batch of biscuits to go with some chili I made for dinner (recipes from Sarah Kramer) and I must say, it was a tasty little owl/goldfish!
Materials: thin metal piece (around 12-15 inches long)
Time: about 15 minutes to mold the shape.
