I got this recipe from a friend of mine years ago who was a cake baker. I love this recipe because there is no chill time for the dough and they are flaky, light, melt-in-your-mouth goodness! You can easily double or triple this recipe. I use a buttercream frosting for icing.

Great recipe! Dough was super easy to work with -- which I found to be amazing. I used butternut vanilla extract, and they were simply delicious. Really recommend this recipe if you want to make cut-out cookies with your children! It was fun, easy, and most importantly, yummy!
