Creative use of a pizza cutter for cookies | Valley life

Dear Heloise: I’m an old grandfather (I prefer that to “grandfather”), and I spent many, many years reading your mother’s column. I was thrilled when you took over. You are almost like family to me. I have lived alone for over 25 years. During this time, I became quite a good cook.

About a year ago I expanded my repertoire to include baking. Among the easiest dishes I liked to make were cookies, especially for my three grandchildren. A few months ago, I thought to myself, “Why use the prefigured cookie cutter shapes all the time?”
