    diner524's Note:

    This is the recipe that has been in our family and now my sisters and I all make this each Christmas. Could be made for any holiday!!! We then make a buttercream frosting and divide it into different bowls and add different colored food coloring drops to them. My mother always made the dough and cut out the cookies and baked them. The kids all got to frost and decorate them together. Hope you and your family enjoy them. NOTE: Time doesn't include chill time required to make dough workable.

      Great cookies, helped me fill a childhood void (my mother didn't bake for the holidays, although she was very fond of pouring sherry on pound cake). These were subtly sweet instead of coma-inducing sweet, which I greatly appreciated. It took a while for me to get the hang of these; I learned that you need to work quickly so the dough doesn't warm up very much. Other than that, the recipe is very forgiving, thank goodness! Mine were done in 7 minutes. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      Yummmmm. Cut out cookies are a tradition at our place during the holidays. The 3 year old great grandaughter says "these are the best cookies she's ever made". We've added it to our must have for the holidays.
