This recipe goes together so easy. It also rolls out and cuts nice. You can bake them right away or chill and roll out later. I recommend using parchment paper. I use it for all my cookies. No need to grease your pans and you can reuse the paper.

  4. Roll out and cut.

This was a straight-forward, easy recipe with good, strong results. I always like recipes that I have all the ingredients on hand so this recipe fit the bill when I started doing some holiday baking. Instead of rolling out and cutting right away, I chilled overnight, rolled and used cookie cutters to cut out shapes (I followed everything else exactly). This cookie is very basic, taste-wise, but it certainly is easy to use and a great start to decorated Christmas cookies!
