These are "THE BEST" cut out christmas cookies. They are super soft. Everyone always asks her for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the first 5 ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Beat well with an electric mixer.
  3. Add the flour.
  4. Mix gently with a spoon until well blended.
  5. Cover and put in the refrigerator.
  6. Chill well.
  7. Roll the dough out on a flat, floured surface.
  8. Do not roll the dough out too thin or too thick. I usually roll it out to about a 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Cut your cookies out and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees.
  11. **Note** do not overbake. I usually take them out of the over when the bottom of the cookies are slightly brown.
  12. Let cool in a single layer on wax paper.
  13. When they are cool, frost and decorate with colored sugars.
