This is a great recipe for cut out cookies! I made these and iced them with the new Whipped frosting from a can (which was really quick and easy) for Valentines Day and took them to the office. They were a huge hit!~ I was told, You have to make these again. I also made them for my picky boyfriend, who only likes really plain vanilla type cookies, and he enjoyed them too. Will definately make these again and again! Just be sure you chill the dough really well before making the cut-outs. Thanks for the great recipe!


I am always looking for a good soft cookie recipe, but I thought the flavor was extremely disappointing. These cookies had hardly any taste and were not sweet at all. They tasted more like a bisquit to me. I would never make them again.


This was quick and easy, and with a little icing the cookies are delicious! The cookies are nice and moist while still being a little flaky - kind of like pastry dough.
