This was one of my Christmas gifts this year. Its a Russell Hobbs cookie maker. I was really excited when I got it and now that I have used it I feel like it was a huge waste of money. The idea is good, you can make loads of different shaped cookies and you can also use it to ice cakes.
However when I used it to make these cute little heart shaped cookies for New Years Eve I was very disappointed, it was very hard to get similar shaped cookies each one came out a different size and shape. Also my hand ached so bad by the time I had turned all the dough into cookies. The above photo makes it look easy but its not......maybe its because I'm a lefty, I don't know but I had to keep stopping cause I got hand cramp!!!
By the time I had baked and iced them they looked pretty good but I was left wondering if it was worth it! What a shame.
On a happy note I used the vanilla and some of the food colouring from my care package from Cristy.
Last night I had a dream that Joe drank all my food colouring......weird!!!
Any way maybe soon I will try my cookie maker again and maybe this time I will feel different about it....Maybe!
