Than 100 Cookie Designs with Only a Handful of
Cookie Cutters

Dubbed "the most creative baker I know" by Ina Garten,

famous decorating techniques and dough recipes.

Known for her irresistibly playful cookie designs, Patti

shows how, with a change of perspective and her

decorating tips, a single cookie cutter is the only tool

you need to make a Chick that will transform, into

French Fries, a Hen, and a Dog!


A pumpkin-shaped cookie morphs into a bunch of

bananas or into George Washington's profile; a tea cup

into a stork or graduation cap; a ghost into a cat; a

football helmet into a bird on a nest or an elephant; a

gift box into a spider; or Santa into a turkey , and much

more. Plus, Patti shares her seven favorite cookie dough

recipes from classic vanilla sugar cookies to vegan

gingerbread, and all the tools, tips, techniques and

resources needed to create your own transformations in

the kitchen - even how to make your own cookie cutters.
