    AngelaTN's Note:

    Are you tired of sugar cookie dough that will not roll out properly? Dough's too sticky? That won't cut-out properly? Are you tired of sugar cookies that are too fragile to decorate? If so, then this is the recipe for you. I have the world's worst luck with sugar cookies. 3 years in a row I had great intentions of making cutout sugar cookies for my Christmas baskets. Inevitably, I failed. One year, the dough was way too sticky. Another, the cookies just feel apart. Then I found this recipe. These cookies roll out and cut beautifully, they bake evenly, and they are sturdy enough to frost and decorate yet still taste heavenly. Even my 3yo could not mess these up! And yes, I checked this against all the other sugar cookie recipes on this site -- it's different. And delicious!
