I hate sugar cookies. I think they taste like slightly sweetened playdough. But I love decorating cutout cookies, and so have been on a long, long search for cutout cookie dough that tastes good, too.
I found this recipe in a random free-book-club cookbook called Season's Greetings. This dough makes beautiful cutout cookies, and they are so, so delicious!
The cookies are a little more fragile that your general spackle-dough recipe, but it is so worth it! Choose sturdy shapes likes stars and snowmen (snowflakes one year were a disaster), and your friends will love you!
