There is nothing more frustrating then baking your sugar cookie for a certain shape to have it come our imperfect. Yes there are tricks like chilling your dough before you bake them, or making a recipe that specifically doesn’t spread, but even with that they don’t come out perfectly. What I do works everytime, is quick and super simple! Here is what I use to fix that… a zester/microplaner! Yes you heard me right, the tool you use to get lemon or lime zest.

Now go make some perfectly shaped cookies!!
