One of my true loves - square cookie cutters

My set of square cookies cutters has become near and dear to my heart.  You see, I use them more than any other shape.

And the reason for this?  Well, it is not only darling with the little scalloped edges - it is also extremely versatile.  I can use a square shape for any holiday, occasion, or theme. 

Here, I stacked two heart cookies on top of my stalwart square!

Some royal icing roses climbing up the stack, make for a sweet Valentine nibble.

Do you want to know a secret about square cookies?
They are by far the easiest shape to outline (at least for this cookie baker).   If I am making a large quantity, I will always choose a square over a circle because I can make a clean outline with more accuracy and speed.  

Yep, it's hip to be square.  

I have owned this set for the last two years, and I have used them almost non-stop.  
True love!
