    Lizzymommy's Note:

    My best friend in college gave me this recipe from her mom's collection. They're wonderful as written, however, add a little extra flour to the dough, skip tinting half red, and you have the most delicious sugar cookie dough for cookie cutouts I've ever had! I've used this dough for Xmas Cutouts for over a decade now. I use the icing from Kittencal's Buttery Cut-Out Sugar Cookies W/ Icing That Hardens.

      I followed the recipe exactly, but I couldn't roll them out! The dough just kept falling apart. So I adlibbed and marbleized the 2 colours into round cookies instead. They were delicious! And everyone appreciated them in their Christmas tins of goodies!

      unfortunately, despite following directions exactly (other than swapping the quantities of almond and vanilla extracts, as we wanted almond-y cookies), these were the greasiest, weirdest, most tasteless cookies I've ever made. I'm sorry to say it, but I don't understand what happened. They looked pretty decent, but tasted badly enough that I had to toss the whole batch.
