Wanda's Cut Out Christmas Cookies

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 8 mins

My best friend Darrell's mother, Wanda makes these every Christmas. This is the best rolled sugar cookie I've ever tasted! They are so light and delicate, they practically melt in your mouth! I have no idea how many this recipe makes, I'm guessing 3 dozen. Prep time does not include 2 hour chill time.

A waste of ingredients. Even after refrigerating the dough crumbled and was difficult to transfer to the pan. It took longer than the alloted 5-8 minutes cooking adn after they were done they had no taste,did taste like vegetable oil Yuck!

Sorry, but this really didn't work for me. I couldn't roll out the dough at all, even though I did everything as directed. I even tried chilling it for much longer, but ended up chucking it away and starting all over again with a different recipe for cut-out cookies.

I am so sorry that it took me so long to put in my review. I made these before Christmas. So wonderful, my sister came over on Christmas morning to get more to open her presents with. I used cream cheese frosting. I promised I'll make more for Valentines Day
