Made these for the Halo 3 release, for a slumber party we had to celebrate.  The recipe is a pretty standard (and very easy!) shortbread cookie recipe; they turned out okay considering I'm not practiced at the art of cut-out cookies.  The fun part was making the cutters.  Smiley

I stuck to decorating with sugar icing, lots of very pretty toxic coloring, candy dots for eyeballs, and sour gummy "spaghetti" cut into little bits.  I tried out some gel icing, but abandoned those because they never harden, leaving cookies unstackable without getting sticky backsides.  I can't wait for the next Final Fantasy game release now.  

All tips and ideas for future cut-out cookie baking highly highly appreciated!!!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Those are awesome!!  I have made some cutters myself, but nothing this elaborate.  If you go to Michael's or some other craft store, you can get large round cookie cutters.  I have used circles to make football shapes and large Easter eggs.  Would really like to know what you used to make these.  Great job!!

Thanks for the praise.  Smiley  I made them by buying a set of 3 easter themed cutters: a large egg, a chick, and a bunny.  I thought starting with cutters would be easier than folding and cutting small sheets of metal myself, since i don't have access to tools like that.  (Just like jace_miller suggests!!:)  I got mine at Long's, but I think I'll peek at Michael's next...)

I tried to buy cutters whose shapes already suggested similarities to what i wanted to make...the grunt was made from the bunny, the logo from the egg, the needler from the chick.

I used images ala internet, printed/sketched them out kind of to size of the cutters, picked up 2 pairs of needle-nosed pliers and started bending.

They are a little wobbly, they don't lay perfectly flat, like the grunt's leg raises up a bit, so I had to roll it down into the dough to cut the whole figure, but they worked well enough to get me my cookies cut. 

I'm sorry, I'm a lousy process-documenter, the best pic I have for this is the first one; you can see the sketches that i used for shape underneath their corresponding cutters.

If i find a picture of the cutters I bought, I'll stick it up here somewhere...

I recently saw a weird high heel shaped cutter I'm thinking could become a nice Buster sword from Final Fantasy 7...
