I thought it would be fun to see the different answers.  Is there a "go to" cookie cutter that you tend to use more then others.  If so, which shape is it?

 

I think for me its a scalloped square that gets pulled out when I do not have the exact cutter for my design.  

 

So......which one is it for you?

I almost always go for the scalloped square as well.  I do, however, have a love affair with coastal cookie cutters.  I use them all year long! (I live on the Gulf Coast so it is to be expected ;-)

Julia, I got my favorite scalloped square at Christmas time in a set from World Market. It is plastic, which I don't love, but it also has a rounded corner square on the flip side which I use all the time, too!  My favorite though is the large rectangle plaque from Karen's Cookies!
Copper Gifts has a very nice one but there is a set made by Ateco at Karens Cookies  that are good too.

I have some Ateco scalloped squares actually, but I don't find them very scallop-y. Maybe I have an old set . . . I really like the Copper Gifts cutter as the scallops are more accentuated.

I have the scalloped squares from World Market too and LOVE them!!  My other "can't cookie without" cutters are the rectangle plaques from Karen's cookies.  I honestly could use them for anything!  

 

These are almost exactly like the World Market cutters. And unlike some plastic cutters, they make a very sharp, crisp edge

Ooh, you have me wanting that plastic set!  The scallops do look perfect in a Goldilocks kind of way--not too big, not too small.  I'll have to cross my fingers and hope World Market carries them again this Christmas season.

They've had a square set like that at Walmart around Easter. Someone found them on CRU forum & shipped them around to those of us who couldn't find them at local ones.  They were seriously like $1.99-2.99.  

 Since we are on the subject of cookie cutters.

I am going to the States this week and will be going to a Michel's and a Joanne stores. First time. I have a few cookie cutters( mostly Xmas) and want to enhance my collection. What do you all think are the most popular designs and ones that every cookie baker should own? Is there anything else I shouldn't be without?

Tina,

I'm really unimpressed with the cookie cutter selection at Michaels and Joann Fabrics.  Very limited, and overpriced.  If you can find an independent cake store in the area you'll be visiting, you'll find a MUCH better selection.

OK I am going to Madison New Jersey, anyone got any ideas what around there or should I just order online and have them shipped while I am there. If so what cutter do you all find are great to work with?

I won a 3D plaque cookie cutter from Whisked Away cookies at CookieCon and love it too!  I have Karen's cookies rectangle plaque cutters and use one of these rectangle plaques in almost every platter I do.

Oooo, I'm really loving those plastic squares! I have some that don't have those nice scalloped edges, just faint scallops, from Sur La Table. Looks like I need to check out Amazon on my lunch hour! And I'm extremely curious to see a photo of Tracy's (Whisked Away Cookies) plaque cutter. Anyone want to post it????
