Sometimes the conveniences of the future are small, but still awesome. The staff at Thingiverse has created a program to turn any sketch into a digital file for a cookie cutter that's ready for 3-D printing.

You can even make a cookie design with cutouts inside—for example, I could make a star-shaped cookie with a hollow "F" in the middle—and the program will automatically add the scaffolding necessary to make it happen.

The program appears on Thingiverse, which is a website where users share the digital designs they've made for 3-D printers.

While you're waiting for your custom cutter to print, why not learn a bit about the chemistry of cookie baking?
