National Cookie Cutter Week is for honoring and enjoying the fun use of cookie cutters. There is nothing as much fun as decorating a cookie or perhaps turning it into a holiday ornament or a gift for a friend or homebound neighbor! Let December 4 at 1:00 p.m. be the day you sit down at Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center, 521 Main Street in Damariscotta and have some cookie decorating and baking fun.

On December 4 bring a batch of your favorite cookie dough, your vintage cookie cutters (a cookie cutter being a tool to cut out cookies in a particular shape), baking sheet, decorating tools and have fun making, decorating and baking cookies as you share stories and memories from your kitchen. Memories last a lifetime so make some cookie memories at the Coastal Center or bake and decorate two dozen of your favorite cookies at home. Bring them and an empty cookie tin plus a copy of your recipe(s) to share with others. If cookie makers wish we will create recipe greetings or a mini cookie cookbook from the recipes participants bring to the party.  Cookie makers will have plenty of time to sit down with a tall glass or cold milk, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and a large plate of fresh cookies, and have no guilt at eating them all up as stories about the cookie cutters used are shared. To express your interest call 563-1363 by December 3. National Cookie Cutter week, always the first week in December, was started in the mid-nineties by Paula Mullins from Kentucky.  It was started for the members of the Cookie Cutter’s Collector’s Club.  Paula registered it and designed a cokie cutter for it each year. Community members across all generations welcome.  Make December 4 a grandmother/father and granddaughter/son cookie making tradition.
