Christmas sugar cookies don't exactly reinvent the wheel when it comes to creative pastry. This year, why not go beyond the usual array of standard shapes like snowmen, spruce trees, reindeer and the inevitable jolly man himself, Santa Claus? For a holiday sweet that is really a treat, check out the coolest, craziest, most X-rated cookies cutters we could find -- because boring cookies taste better with a sense of humor.
For instance, what batch of sugar cookies wouldn't benefit from these Kama Sutra molds? There's no need to ask if these cookies have been naughty or nice -- it's pretty obvious that Pipparkakan's Kama Sutra cutters have been up to no good.
We suppose a subtle dose of noir humor is required to love these as much as we do, but the the ABC Cookies (Already Been Chewed) cookie cutters from BaronBob.com
truly tickle the Christmas funny bone. Featuring gingerbread men
without heads, arms and legs, it looks as if Dexter's "dark passenger"
really wanted a cookie.
Another extreme favorite, these Ninjabread Men cookie cutters from Perpetualkid.com,
are billed as "stealthy shinobi warriors set to sneak into your kitchen
and stage a cookie coup!" The cool kids sit in the back of the bus
eating Ninja cookies. Earn your black belt in baking.
Although these were most likely created for bachelor and
bachelorette parties, since you (hopefully) only get married once in a
lifetime, Christmas seems like a good time to recycle. The Naughty Cookie Kitchen's cutters shaped like boobs and a penis is available on SomethingSexyPlanet.com.
