3D Printed Cookie Cutter Biscuits

So… I went ahead and got a cookie cutter make via the magic of 3D printing! I used CookieCaster to trace work’s logo, then got it printed with Sculpteo. Not cheap at about £30 including shipping… but worth it for the novelty of 3D printing.

The printed cutter is great… although the cutting edge is kinda thick… But I was warned the design was 2mm thick as this was advised for strength. We’ll see how it goes…

So, for the recipe it’s the same as last time, except half the amount for this quick test, and no baking powder in an effort to reduce cooking spread.

  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g caster sugar (golden, as that’s all I had)
  • 200g plain flour (wholemeal, as that’s all I had)
  • 1/2 egg
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Also to avoid cookie spread I didn’t beat lots of air in during creaming, I just beat until mixed in then added egg, then quickly flour. Oh and as I can’t be arsed icing them, I’ve decided to colour to dough blue.

After a time in the fridge I rolled it out and cut out the V shapes.

As you can see, the thick sides of the cutter left little flecks on the side of the shape. I tried filing down the cutter but this didn’t really work. So… it kinda does the job, but if I order another cutter I’ll get the 1mm width, which I’m sure will be strong enough for a small cookie cutter.

So… on to the baking sheet, and cook for 10mins at 160c fan.

And after baking…. yay hardly any spread!
