Cookies are a beloved and cherished dessert and snack. When you have the craving for something simple but sweet, cookies are by far the best go-to.
From delectable and gooey peanut butter cookies to simple sugar cookies to the classic chocolate chip cookies, you can never go wrong and there are so many options in the realm of this simple dessert.
Not only are cookies themselves delicious, but the process of baking cookies is a fun activity that can bond families and friends together!
The tasks involved in baking cookies are a great teaching element for young kids, as well. A great technique for making it fun is to have different shapes of cookies with different-shaped cookie cutters.
Whether using cookie cutters just for fun for kids, or for specific holidays or seasons, cookie cutters are a cute way to make cookies festive and different. But how are cookie cutters made?
That’s probably something you’ve never even thought about until now. So, how do they get the metal into such specific shapes?
LADBible posted a video on Facebook showing the public just how cookie cutters are really made, and it is fascinating!
They begin by cutting specific strips of tin based on the design of cookie cutter. They utilize a machine that rolls the strips out for them.
They then roll the strip of tin into a ring, feeding the strips into a roller so it will fit around the molds.
They take the ring and fit it together, then place the ring around the specific mold design.
With metal attachments whose ends are specific parts of the mold design, they push the metal attachments forward to the ring and indent the metal in line with the mold. After going around the whole circle, they have completed the design!
They can then remove the ring as a brand new cookie cutter and begin on their next one!
With all sorts of molds and designs, the possibilities are endless. What an interesting job!
