Easier way to make these cookies.

My 4 sisters and I loved these cookies as children. Mother made them for Christmas and decorated them beautifully. The dough always stuck to the cutters and the cookies came out less than perfect. Inserting a piece of plastic wrap between cutter and dough and pressing the dough into the cutter turns out a perfect cookie every time and no flour build-up in the crevasses. I inherited the cutters when Mom passed and still make them each year for my family. The littles ones especially, love the alternate Santa mold. Deborah V, Florida
