Fabulous Cut-Out Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by wife2abadge

I've tried many recipes for roll-out, cut-out cookies and this is IT! The cookies are tender and have a perfect taste. It doesn't make a gigantic amount either. For chocolate cookies, stir 3 oz melted unsweetened chocolate into the dough.
