Where can I find cookie cutters is a question that gets asked occasionally in a cookie baking group I'm in
I've drafted a list for you of over 20 stores that carry cookie cutters, not including your local grocery store, which usually has them.
Where Can I Buy Cookie Cutters?
The closest place near you to buy a cookie cutter is probably your grocery store.
In smaller stores, it might be a seasonal item.
I found Christmas cookie cutters right after Halloween at Shaw’s (aka Star Market)

I just ordered a bunny cookie cutter for Easter from this Etsy shop. They are super cute.
I recommend metal cutters. Metal does a better job of cutting through dough than plastic cutters.
The best brands include Ann Clark, Wilton and Ateco.
Use the rim of a drinking glass to cut out circle-shaped cookies. Or you could use a ruler or a bench scraper to make square or rectangle cookies. If you want to make small round cookies, you could try using the cap from a gallon water jug.
You'll need cookie cutters to make shapes such as these Lemon Shortbread Heart Cookies or these No-Stick Cut-Out Sugar Cookies or Black Cocoa Cut-Out Cookies.
Do you remember when you had to bring a "Y" food to school? Not sure what grade you were in. Your father made a metal "Y" shaped cookie cutter and you made sugar cookies and used that cookie cutter. Wonder what happened to that cookie cutter?
