This Trefoil cookie cutter is 2" wide by 2" high and 1 1/4" deep.
The cutter is hand crafted from tin plate and soldered with lead free solder.
The top edge of the cutter is rolled over to provide a comfortable grip in the palm of your hand when cutting a few, a dozen or several dozen cookies.
Perfect for making cookies but also ideal for many other food uses:
There are also many non food uses ultimately limited only by your imagination and creativity. Here are just a few:
My favorite rolled cookie recipe:
• 1 ½ cups Butter • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
• 1 ½ cups Spry or Crisco • 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
• 5 cups Sugar • 1 teaspoon Salt
• 2 cups Buttermilk/Sour Milk • ½ teaspoon Oil of Anise
• 5 Eggs • About 5 pounds Flour
Note: 3 cups Margarine or Butter may be substituted for the Butter and Shortening
Note: Oil of Anise is not the same as Anise Extract
Cleaning and care instructions included with purchase (but here they are for everyone's benefit):
Your tin plate cookie cutters should last indefinitely provided you give them a bit of attention. I recommend hand washing them in warm soapy water followed by a thorough rinse. After that, place them in your oven (set to bake on the lowest temperature possible - usually warm) for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will thoroughly dry the cutters and prevent rust on the untinned edges. Rust on the untinned edges will not impact the usefulness of the cutters but can be easily removed with scotch brite or a brillo pad.
