These are by far the best cut out sugar cookies I have ever made. The only change I made was using the 4 teaspoons of baking powder in place of the cream of tartar and baking soda. I let the dough set Fridge overnight. I too rolled the cookies between 2 sheets of parchment paper (you could use wax paper) and only had to use a dusting of powder on the paper and on the dough and had no trouble at all with the cut outs sticking or the dough being too sticky(?). Baked them for 7 minutes.....no longer. They were perfect. This is my new sugar cookie recipe that I am sure I will use forever.

This recipe is perfect. I only did two things different. I did not have cream of tartar so I did not use that, but I did use baking powder as someone suggested. I also only let them chill for an hour instead of all night (only because the kids were anxious to make them.) We used an icing off this site and together it worked perfect. This was definately a wonderful sugar cookie!! (Also, it was exactly 8 minutes to make them just right!! ) I also used real butter instead of margarine!
