Busia's Cutout Cookies45 Reviews
“These cookies are great everyday cookies, not too sweet or buttery. They are usually in special shapes and decorated for different holidays.” - by Amy Melissa
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs.
- Dissolve the baking soda in the milk, then add to mixture. Add the vanilla and mix well
- Place salt in with flour and slowly stir into mixture. The dough should not be too sticky and should pull away from the sides of the bowl easily. If the dough is sticky, add a little more flour.
- Form the dough into a roll about a foot long and 2-3 inches in diameter. Roll up in wax paper and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Remove from refrigerator and let dough come to room temperature. Roll out dough a chunk at a time (one dough log makes about 4 chunks).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
- Cut your cookies and decorate or bake plain for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

"These are the BEST cutout cookies ever. The submitter of the recipe says it best. The wonderful thing about them is that they stay soft in the middle, very similer to the 'Cookie Bouquet' cookies. ..." See moreI highly recomend them!!"
"This was a difficult review to decide on. I would definitley give it a 5 for ease of working with the dough; it really had the best texture I've ever worked with for cutout cookies. As far as the fl..." See moreavor goes, I would give it a 3 or maybe even a two. I don't like my cookies to be too sweet, but these had very little flavor period. I bet the other reviewer had the right idea though, when they said it was the perfect cookie recipe to use with lots of icing. If you had a really rich icing, I think this would be the perfect cookie dough. And if I were to make cookies with kids, I would definitely use this recipe because of how easy the dough was to work with. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"I tried this recipe after an unsuccessful attempt at making cutout cookies. The cookie is not too sweet (which I like - if you prefer a really sweet cookie, this recipe is not for you), and the dough ..." See moreis very easy to handle. The bottoms were golden brown (I baked them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper), and the cookies held their shape very well. Be careful when cooking, as the edges will start to turn golden, but the tops of the cookies themselves do not brown. Mine were done at about 7 minutes at 350 degrees."
