They would probably use aluminum as it is cheap and soft (easy bending). As long as it's clean, aluminum should be food safe.

Yes but cookies are low acid and it should not be a problem.

Janet, your cookies look beautiful. I know this isn't exactly what you want, but have you thought about shortbread "pans". I am sure if you looked on the internet there would be something close or a place where you could fire your own.

oohh - that is very pretty, but I am holding out for the custom thing (if I can figure out how to get it made). The beauty of the cutter is that I can bake a lot of cookies at once. With the press, it would be slow to make them, one after the other. But those cookies are lovely....

Just a silly idea, but I use a Scottish Scone / Cornbread Pan - Nordic Ware when baking scones. Could you use it as a cutter by pressing it on the dough upside-down? As a bonus you can always use it some other time for scones or cornbread.

EDIT: you can find the pans on Amazon...
