These were really good, though if you want a softer cookie I'd suggest cutting them a little on the thick side. I made them for the Bible study group I attend and found that while I really liked the taste, they were a little on the crispy side for my preference. I'll definitely try the recipe again, though, as I like the flavor. Thanks for a great recipe, Aroostook! ;)
I have never had much luck with cutout cookies before but decided to try again. This recipe was fantastic! It was really easy to work with. I did need to let the dough set out for about 10 minutes before I could roll it out but that wasn't a problem. Really like the flour/confectioner's sugar combo for flouring the surface. It worked better than flour by itself. I tried both versions, sprinkling with colored sugar before baking and using icing and sprinkles & liked the results of both. The flavor is good but next time I will add either another tsp. of vanilla or maybe almond for a little more flavor. Thanks so much Barb for helping me conquer my cutout cookie fear!
