This is by far the best cut-out cookie recipe I have come across. It doesn't have any unusual ingredients and it doesn't call for cups and cups of powdered sugar and it doesn't need to refrigerated forever. It is a large recipe, but just right for passing around to friends and family. They are great for any holiday or rainy day. I originally stumbled across it in a newsletter for a local group of women to which my cousin belongs. It was not credited to anyone there. With buttercream frosting, they are an excellent likeness to those super Cheryl & Co. cookies everyone loves!
