How to Cut Perfect Diamond-Shaped Cookies

To make diamond-shaped shortbread cookies without a food-safe ruler, flip a cooling rack upside down (so the feet are up and not pressing into the dough) and set it on top of your rolled-out cookie dough. Press gently. Turn the rack at an angle and press again. Use the lined imprint of the tines as a guide, and use a pizza cutter to get perfectly straight and uniform cuts.

It works like a charm for any straight-edged recipe, from cookies to crackers to pasta.
