What would holiday baking be without festive Newfie cookies?
If you’re getting ready to bake up some holiday cookies in the kitchen you don’t want to be without some festive Newfoundland dog cookie cutters to make your cookies unique and adorably delicious!
I love my Newfie cookie cutter and I’ve had it for about 20 years.
Needless to say, it’s seen better days.
Instead of looking like a perfectly sound Newfoundland my cookie cutter now looks more like a plump, unkept Newfie.
It’s totally lost and it’s shaped and it was time to order a new one.
Where to buy Newfoundland dog cookie cutters
My Brown Newfies is a participant in the Amazon LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. We also link to other affiliate programs in this post.
My first Newfie cookie cutter came from a small bakeshop and it was gifted to me from my sister.
This year I ordered one from Amazon.
I ordered the basic tin plate cutter which is almost out of stock but they also have a nice handmade copper one too.
What to use Your Cookie Cutters For
Cookie cutters are versatile and cheap making them a great accessory to have in the kitchen or in the craft room!
- Adorable food. You can use these to make shapes out of a variety of foods such as pancakes, sandwiches, mini cakes, ice cream sandwiches, and jello molds! How cute would a Newfie ice cream sandwich be?!
- Use as a stencil. You can use your Newfoundland dog cookie cutter as a stencil to make cards, pumpkin carvings, clay ornaments, photo frames, gift tags, and even welcome mats!
- Use as a mold. You can use your cookie cutter as a mold to make soap, candles, bird feeders
- Give as a gift.
- Cookie cutters make a great gift for almost anyone and you can spruce up the Newfie cookie cutter with a bow and gift with a creative cookie mix and/or some potholders and kitchen towels! You can even gift it with your Furball Ornament!
- Dog cookies. Since this cookie cutter is a little bigger than most it will make perfect Newfie-sized dog treats!
I’ve also seen a few people use cookie cutters for garland and to make wreaths.
Our Newfie Sugar Cookies
My daughter and I used our new cookie cutter to make sugar cookies yesterday.
I cheated and used Pillsbury premade sugar cookie dough.
I baked them according to the decorations and they puffed up so I had “plump” Newfies instead of “standard” Newfies.
Out of about 2 dozen cookies that we made only about 6 of them actually came out looking somewhat like a Newfie.
Some of them lost their necks and some of them had cankles.
That’s alright though, the fun was in the decorating and my daughter and I had such fun dressing them up.
The Newfie sugar cookies are also super fun to decorate, however, if you have Newfies in the kitchen helping you bake we can’t guarantee that your cookies will not have that extra special Newfie hair touch!
I’m currently waiting for these clay cutouts to dry so I can paint them and hang them on the Christmas tree this year!
