The cookie cutter is a great shape. Haven't used it to make cookies yet, but I think it will work just fine. I thought this would be perfect to make cookies for all of my daughter's tea parties that she likes to have. The quality of the metal makes me wonder though. The instructions tell you to handwash and then dry immediately. Being lazy with dishwashing like I am, I like things that can be put in the dishwasher or at the least able to drip-dry in the dish drainer. This is not able to do either, so I'm guessing this item will rust easy. It was fairly cheap, so maybe it isn't made to be used for years and years. Overall, cute cookie cutter that I'm excited to use, but i'm afraid it will quickly rust.
