Fabulous Cut-Out Cookies

"I've tried many recipes for roll-out, cut-out cookies and this is IT! The cookies are tender and have a perfect taste. It doesn't make a gigantic amount either. For chocolate cookies, stir 3 oz melted unsweetened chocolate into the dough."

    very tasty, you can probably change the vanilla extract for any other flavoring and they would still come out great. A little messy when cutting out, they break easily and kept me wondering if I was doing something wrong.. that's why I won't give them 5 stars. but they taste great! thanks!

    Awesome and such an easy dough to do with my son who is 5 and doesn't have the patience for Mommy to chill the dough and then cut out! We added miniture chocolate chips, hershey's kisses to our cut outs and baked and came out awesome! Thanks again.

    Although my pet peeve is people who rate a recipe after they have changed it beyond all recognition I realise I am going to do the same with this one!! I used half butter half shortening because I ran out and my two year old who was helping decided he wanted gingerbread men once the dough was made so we added 1tsp ginger, 1 of cinnamon and 1 of allspice. A fab recipe though which was so easy to use as a base! Thanks for the tip about rolling out between paper, it worked like a treat and I now don't have to clean up a flour-dusted toddler, always a bonus!!!
