"This is the same cut out cookie recipe that I have used for several years. It is easy to make and wonderful for elaborate decorations. This is one that I use each Christmas for the cookie baskets, tha..." See moret I am famous for. It's not so much the flavor that everyone loves but the decoration on top. The only thing I do different is use two 1/4" dowell rods when rolling out the dough to make sure each cookie is the same height and bake evenly."
"These are okay. The dough was great for cutouts. 1/8 inch thick though seemed a bit thin and we had trouble getting them on the cookie sheet. We rolled the next ones a little thicker about 1/4 inch, a..." See morend they were much easier to work with. Flavor was so-so, just a sugar cookie. A little dense, heavier texture than what I prefer. This is a nice sturdy cookie perfect for little hands to decorate."
