My Historic Cookie Cutter

My Cookie Cutter – SAWA 2000 Deluxe

My Cookie Cutter has been neglected. It is many years since I have used it, but I am going to create some great biscuits for Christmas this year.

I don’t have the instructions, but I am sure that will not be an issue for me – as I did use it frequently years ago.

When did I get it?  I really don’t know – but probably back in the 1970’s.  The boxes look old – and I vaguely remember using it often when the children were small.

My Cookie (Biscuit) Cutter



There are plenty of recipes online.  (Thank goodness for Dr Google!)  So, later this week I will endeavour to make some with my old biscuit cutter.

Maybe I will have to take a lot of photos too – so watch this space!

Christmas Gifts

One thought that is wandering around my brain is to make gifts from these biscuits.  Maybe a week before Christmas, I will cook some and pack them into food quality cellophane bags, add some decorations and ribbons and give them to a range of my friends.  They will have to be made close to the BIG day so that they don’t deteriorate before I give them away.

Of course I will use my SAWA!!!

I  wonder which of my grandchildren would like it?
