    Debbie Smith's Note:

    This dough has been made every Christmas in my house. This recipe can be used to make not only cut-out cookies to give your family a rest from the normal sugar cookie recipe, but also has two other variations. One can roll them out and add a dab of jam or a pecan or walnut before baking, or add chopped up walnuts and roll dough in confectioner's sugar to make snow balls. They're all delicious. (Just remember to chill before baking - that's the key.)

      I liked this alot, a perfect texture and taste and so easy to cut out, definately err on the thick side if you are going to decorate them and pay close attention to time in the oven. Do not overcook unless you want crispy cookies, but they still tasted good!

      Outstanding recipe. I added chopped pecans and made marvelous butter pecan cookies for a party. I'll use this recipe for holidays and for gift tins.

      Awesome recipe, dough was easy to work with and the cookies came out tasting wonderful. I frosted some with icing and others I sprinkled with colored sugar before baking. Everyone loved them!
