Priscilla's Cut-Out Cookies

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by KatiesMama

This recipe was given to me a few Christmases ago by my good friend Priscilla. This is the best recipe for cut-out cookies that I've come across in all my years. It's simple, but it's delicious. Instead of almond, I'll sometimes add lemon or peppermint extract for different-flavored cookies. Cooking time includes chill time.

I lost my recipe and was so thrilled to find this one. It is exactly like my recipe. Everyone is so thrilled with these cookies. They are the BEST!
