RUNNING RABBIT COOKIE CUTTER

The tinsmiths in communal Amana would get creative at the holidays or a the request of his children when he made cookie cutters.  One such popular cutter was the running rabbit cutter.  It was 8”long and very prized in one’s collection.  At Easter, bunny-shaped cookies were traditional so every child received at least one 8 inch long cookie courtesy of the kitchen workers, the tinsmiths, and the Easter Bunny!  It had a raisin eye or some used one chocolate chip, with a brown sugar dough, all very tasty.
