My moms cookie cutters

Over the holidays I went back to Savannah to visit my mom and family. As most families do over the holidays - we baked. I had it in my head that I wanted to make Linzer Cookies, which are traditional Austrian cookies that I love. They're two cookies placed on top of each other with raspberry or strawberry jam in the center and a hole cut out of the top one dusted with confectioners sugar... so good. So in order to make these I needed some round cookie cutters and then smaller round cutters for the hole in the top cookie. I asked my mom where her cookie cutters were and I was happy to see that she had quite the collection. I am the youngest of 4 children and my mom was quite the baker when we were growing up (and still is) we have home video's of us decorating cookies at almost every holiday made with these very cookie cutters. Getting them all out brought back a lot of memories and I thought I would share her expansive collection with all of you.
