If it’s one-time-use, both ABS and PLA are perfectly safe for use as a cookie cutter. The “food safety” of 3D printed parts is fairly controversial. In fact, whether any particular material is approved by regulators (such as the US FDA) for food contact is much more complex than most people realize.
For the most part, 3D printed cookie cutters are food safe because they are not in contact with the cookie dough for very long and because the cookie is baked after it is cut, which kills any bacteria.

DIY Cookie Cutter Shapes. Some of us are a little more artistic and creative than others but have no fear. Creating simple shapes is easy by printing out templates or outlining and tracing objects. All you need is some paper, a pen, and a little patience.
Can you drink out of a PLA cup?
Technically yes, PLA is (mostly) food safe. However, there are other aspects of 3D printing in PLA that can cause problems. Firstly, a 3D printed cup is not likely to be watertight. Secondly, the layered effect leaves areas that bacteria can flourish in, so your PLA cup is only usable for 1 or 2 drinks.
PLA (polylactic acid) is the most commonly use filament for printing cookie cutters. PLA is a bio-degradable type of plastic that is made from corn starch or sugar came (it also contains additives and pigments). It is called “the green plastic”, and it is considered food safe.
Can you drink from 3D printed cup?
Choose the right material for the object being printed. Using PLA for your coffee cup may be food safe, but the plastic is too soft for hot drinks and could melt in a dishwasher. ABS might make a stronger choice for the cup, but it’s not certified food safe and has chemicals that are potentially toxic to ingest.
Are 3D printed parts safe?
3D printing is a safe activity, as long as reasonable precautions are taken – for example, not touching hot 3D printer nozzles. However, there is a concern about the fumes that 3D printers give off when they print.

In general, metal cookie cutters are sharper than plastic and will give you better results. Whichever type of cookie cutter you choose, flour it and then set it on the rolled-out dough and press straight down. Try not to jiggle or twist the cookie cutter as you use it.

Speaking of investment, I’ve printed over 60 cutters from one roll of filament. If you’re looking at an average price of 4.00-5.00 per cookie cutter from 3D shops that means the machine would pay for itself in about one roll of filament for me.

In answer to your sealing question though, for reusable cookie cutters I cover them in mod podge dishwasher safe sealant. I also print in petg as this can survive the high temps in there. Tl:Dr Yes single use is likely fine from personal experince, if you want multiple uses you can try mod podge clear coat/ sealer.
