Cookie Cutter Sandwiches

I don't even remember where I first got the idea to use a cookie cutter on a sandwich (probably Martha Stewart!) but it is now one of my girls' favorite things. They often make requests for food in shapes! "I would like a butterfly sandwich" or "star toast". It is quick, easy and fun! The little touch makes them feel extra special. And if you have a no crust eating kiddo, takes care of that in a snap!

Today I made Grace a pumpkin shaped turkey sandwich for lunch. I make the sandwich and then cut out the completed sandwich. If there is a lot of extra cheese or meat around the edges I will add the little pieces in so it doesn't go to waste.

Thanks for the reminder. I bet Spencer would love for me to start putting these in his lunches. :)
