Possibly but want to see something that needed no support? thingiverse.com/thing:27667 That took him 9 hours to print and it is 128 megs HUGE.
Facets don't matter that much at the resolution that we can print. A 23MB file takes a lot longer to process and slice into gcode. Also, I don't think this print is possible without support material due to the horizontal overhangs if you want to print the handle. Have you managed to print this?
I was on my way out the door when I first replied so let me elaborate a little.

What the air pocket was supposed to do is help the dough from going all the way to the top where it would surely stick.  Now if mixed, and/or floured, the right way the air pocket will prevent that and the cookie/biscuit should fall back down.  This last part always had me interested, as a child, on why it could plop back out (most times) since that cushion of air should become a vacuum holding it in place with the absence of any holes.  I suppose it didn't because the weight of the dough and the space of the vacuum prevented it (plus back when those cutters were new they used lard and butter) but, as I mentioned, not always and sometimes I remember having to use a fork to get it out.

I did add a hole version though. :)

Instructions

Since this is a cutting object and you will be applying pressure to cut through the cookie dough I suggest using no less than 40% infill, and really 50%-75% may be needed if you have the spare material handy. If using 40% infill use the honeycomb design as it is the strongest with the least amount of material (Bees have known this since the beginning of time).

There is a version added with air/pressure holes that were not in the original "classic" style cutters.
23 mb? da fuq happend to the stl file
I don't do faceted crap.  You want faceted crap then you will need to find something done in openscad.

A hole or two in the top?  Won't you get an airlock when trying to cut the cookie dough?

 In the old days they didn't use a hole but I was thinking the same.  The thing is the hole would create a suction and the cookie/biscuit would have a heck of a time getting out so they used the built up pressure to help it pop back out.
