    FINALLY! A good sugar cookie for using cutters. They hold their shape & taste delicious. This one is going in the recipe box as THE recipe for when the kids want to use cookie cutters. Thanks!!

    Kitten - thanks for a great, user-friendly sugar cookie recipe! I tend to shy away from rolled cookies - but this is wonderfully forgiving dough. Is it the powdered sugar? And they are very tasty and they travel well (we took a batch to my daughter in college). Looks like I am making these again this Christmas! May even try the frosting this year ; ) Happy Holidays!

    These were great! i used them to make nautical themed sugar cookies and they held their shape really well, the only problem i had was that the dough kept falling apart and i had to keep throwing dough on it, but other than that its a really good cookie.

    Forgive me Kitten for taking the liberty to combine two of your recipes. I made the cookies as instructed...I left the dough in the fridge overnight. Let me tell you it was some of the nicest dough I have ever rolled out, no matter how many times I rerolled it, it was so since and smooth. I did have to cut the cooking time down a couple minutes but it is my oven. They made beautiful snowflake cookies for my cookie exchange party. I decorated them with the icing from Recipe #261889. I made a blue batch and a plain white icing batch. They were an absolute hit at the party. As always, Kittens recipes never fail and always impress. Thanks Kitten.
