Cookie Cutters Gone Funny

I was done with making holiday cookies, really I was. But as soon as I got a glimpse of the ABC* (*already been chewed) cookie cutters by Fred, a Rhode Island design company, I just couldn't resist. It's rare that we allow ourselves an opportunity to make fun in the midst of all the holiday merriment, and this set of aluminum cookie cutters with missing body parts is a refreshing antidote to the seasonal madness of the not-so-fun variety.

One of these things is not like the others -- and I love it! I had some leftover gluten-free gingerbread dough, so I put the cutters to the test last night, and they performed er, um, beautifully.

Washington pranksters, you can get your hands on a set for $10 at Tabletop in Dupont Circle, and a last-minute call revealed that the store is open for Christmas eve stragglers, noon-4 p.m.
