  2. Chill dough until firm enough to roll.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  4. Roll out dough and cut with cookie cutter. It's wise to keep dough in refrigerator between rolling out batches. Bake for 5 - 7 minutes.

I'm always making fun of people writing reviews and saying this didn't turn out and I did it exactly like the recipe called for except.... So, when I saw this recipe called for lard I was surprised that they still made lard but I went and bought it. I made them exactly like the recipe, no changes. When I baked them all I could smell and taste was lard. If my mother in law gave me this recipe I'd be fighting with her and divorcing her son. I thought maybe the lard taste was just in my mind so I took one to a friend to taste and asked what she though, she took a bite and said, God, it tastes like lard. OK, so if you love the taste of lard and I can't imagine anyone that would you mike like these. Perhaps they'd be better if shortning was used in place of lard because the texture wasn't bad but unfortunately all I tasted was lard.



I used this easy recipe for my holiday cookies. They were fabulous and I had lots of people ask for the recipe. I didn't just make cut out cookies, I also used this dough to make a rasberry filled cookie. You roll the dough into ropes (1 inch thick, length of your cookie sheet), use your finger to make an indent 1/2 inch apart all down the rope, fill the indent with rasberry jam, bake a little longer (maybe 10-12 min) and then drizzle melted white chocolate over the top and cut the rope into 1 inch pieces. It was by far the favorite treat. I also made frosted snowman cutouts that were delicous with this recipe, I added a touch of nutmeg.



This is now my ONLY sugar cookie recipe. They are soft and never crumbly. Thanks.
