I have the 5 piece snowflake cutters. It is great but sometimes the cookie does not look as great after being baked (this is using the little cut-outs). I think it had more to do with the recipes I was using though.

What a great idea! I love pastry (the flakier the better!) and snowflakes are such a wonderful theme that can be carried out long before and long after Christmas has come and gone. Thanks for sharing this Mish, very cool

Shunka, you've inspired me to go get a bunch of cookie cutters. Nice little touch to make a dish look unique. Reminded me of an appy... kiwis cut in a star shape on top of a round cantelope slice, on top of cream cheese, on a ritz cracker. Other ideas - tuna/chicken/shrimp salad or pate stars.

Thank you! I love this idea...(off to get puff pastry out of the freezer).

You're welcome KL. Let us know what you whip up... and if there's any puff pastry left over, I'm making a beef or chicken wellington

I am one that always tries to have a good variety of cutters on hand. Alas, when both daughters moved away from home, it seems that most of my cutters went with them!! Oh well, I am having fun picking out new ones!!! :)

I love the idea of using puff pastry as a change from the standard butter cookie dough.

Here's a picture of the snowflake cutouts I did for the holidays 2 years ago (I couldn't cut and past for some reason so you'll have to click on it to see them bigger). These were with vanilla and chocolate butter cookie dough:

These look wonderful for the holidays! Do you know what their 'keeping power' is?

What lovely cookies, PA! Thank you for sharing the pic.

The puffy snowflakes reminded me of these blueberry custard puffy stars.
