My grandmother's recipe for amazing cut outs. It's a tricky dough, but worth it in the end. They taste amazing with a buttercream icing. DO NOT USE MARGARINE! I have found that using margarine or butter in place of shortening makes the dough even trickier to handle.
- Chill overnight.
- Roll out to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. You'll need plenty of flour on the surface to keep the dough from sticking.
- Cut out cookies with your favorite cookie cutters.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes.
