I own hundreds of cookie cutters. Like well over 600. Even though I continue to purchase new cutters all the time, I still find myself needing to piece together (or "Frankencookie") cut cookie dough shapes to create the look I want. It can be stressful making a collection of cookies- enough to make me want a spa day!
And wouldn't you know it- this Spa Day collection has two Frankencookie pieces. Don't afraid to piece together those cookie shapes! I have a secret to make them fit together perfectly!
Some of my favorite cutters are this set of concentric smooth and scalloped circles. I used them to make this trio of bubbles.
Take a look at what I discovered when piecing together the bubbles.
When I first pieced together the circles, I ended up with a gap in between the circles that may or may not have baked together smoothly.
The secret??? FLIP one of the circles over and voilà!! A perfect fit!
I have found that this FLIP concept works with other cutters too! The lipstick and lips were two different cutters. I flipped the lip and it fit snugly into the space I made in the lipstick.
So don't stress if you can't find the perfect cutter!
Cut it, Flip it, Bake it!
Is it time for the spa yet?

Hi Christy! I am pretty sure I used an upside-down skull cutter for the spa girl. A ladybug cutter would work too, as well as frankencookie-ing two sizes of rounds. Hope this helps!
