Cookies are ageless and they have only developed since it was first introduced on the table back in the 7th century AD. Whether it’s baked or not, cookies are still one of the bests. Sweet or not, with or without fillings, with or without sprinkles, you’d never say no to a plate full of cookies.

The channel also made some from the animal kingdom like bunnies, clams, hedgehogs, butterflies, and swans.

But what stood out the most to me personally? The watermelon, mushroom, and sun and skies.

Simplicity is beauty.

With all those designs, you’d notice that they used a lot of basic materials like drinking glasses, forks, toothpicks, cup lids, egg beater, comb, knife, marker, pot holder, bottle cap, chopsticks, and lego blocks.

It’s exactly how they named the video – “Shaping Hacks” because coming up with the designs didn’t require much effort and complicated shaping materials.

One viewer wrote a reminder to those planning to try these cookie design ideas, “If you ever wanted to do any of this, make sure you chill the formed cookie shapes completely before you bake them! They’ll lose their shape if they’re cooked from room temperature because the butter content will melt too quickly.”

While this viewer was so ecstatic to share it with her sister, “That was totally WOW!!! My sister loves to bake cookies. Sending this to my sis because she will definitely try these ideas the next time she gifts cookies. Great minds think of cookies outside of the round or square. Imagine cookies like this for dessert or coffee at an adult party!!! Thank you!!!”

Don’t forget to watch the video below and try doing it at home to surprise your family.
