Snowflake Cookie Cutters 5 "Gorgeous Christmas Snowflakes" Mrs King 10 December 2015 I struggled at first but this works well with shortbread and sugar paste shapes. Roll out chilled dough to1/4". Flour cutter and stamp into dough, twisting it slightly. It DOES stick in the cutter.Turn cutter over and tap it sharply a couple of times on work surface. This loosens the dough. Turn back and prod out out waste dough with rounded paintbrush handle. Hold cutter close to baking sheet and tap it gently with knife handle until it drops out. Removing waste makes cutter more flexible and releases dough better, due to vibration I suppose. Worth trying, be patient end result is great.
