My youngest son brought home this recipe from school. He wanted to make them. They turned out great. They were very easy to make and roll out. Very good tasting too.

I made the dough exactly as directed in the recipe without making any adjustments or changes. And I really loved these cookies. I didn't decorate or frost them, and I thought they were just wonderful. But I can imagine they're probably even better with frosting and sprinkles in holiday colors. Thanks for posting your recipe, cheesygiraffe. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a pan over low heat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, 2 cups of flour, and the sugar.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Slowly mix in the remaining 2 cups of flour.
  5. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Using cookies cutters, cut out shapes. Place them 1 1/2 inches apart on cookies sheets.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  7. Cool cookies on wire rack. Decorate as desired.
