How do we constrain rounded corners to have matching symmetry?

ROUNDED CORNERS – We want matching rounded corners to crop or frame an image.  The problem with the Cookie Cutter tool is that the corners are fine if we cut out a square.  However, if we extend the cutter to a rectangle, the rounded corners become skewed in favor of the longer side.  It is no longer a symmetrical rounded corner.  Ideally, we would be able to select the rounding radius for all corners regardless of the size or shape.  How do we set the tool so that all the corners match?

Thank you, Jeff, so nice when you know what you're doing!  I knew we had done this before, but got stuck on the cropping tool instead of using the rectangle tool.  Thank you so much.
