I was looking for a recipe similar to the cutouts made by Cheryl's Cookies. I found this one on Allrecipes.com. It makes BIG cookies, so use a small cutter. The flavor was OK, but still not what I was looking for. I halved the recipe and got fewer than 2 dozen cookies using a 3" cutter. I iced them with royal icing and covered them in gold sprinkles.
I also used plastic wrap to roll out the dough. It keeps the table and my rolling pin clean and gives the cookies a smooth finish. Use parchment paper on the baking sheets for easy clean up.
