  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add 2 cups of the flour and the sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Slowly mix in the remaining 2 cups of flour.
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/4 of an inch. Cut cookies using cookie cutters and place 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are light brown at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes (depending on their size).

Although the recipe was easy to make, my cookies turned out hard. We like our cookies soft. Any suggestions on how to do this? I/we really like the flavour of this recipe and I would like to use it again. Thanks for submitting it.

this recipe was quite easy to make but the end result was REALLY DISGUSTING. the cookies were rock hard and they were too sweet. i'd try making it again but i'd rather spend my time and efforts trying to find a better recipe.

The dough was very easy to roll and cut, and not having to chill made this recipe easy and quick to prepare. I baked for less time for a more tender cookie, and frosted for valentine's day. Adding vanilla or almond extract would probably make a more flavorful cookie, but these weren't too bad. Husband and kids loved them.

hello, is there any other cut out that doesnt require refridgerating?? It rolls out warm too so that it is so easy to roll out, and it is delicious, i really liked it!

The first time I made them, they came out good. I made them with cinnamon applesauce instead of eggs. But now they taste more like tough biscuits with sugar whenever I make them, whether I use eggs or applesauce. Would more butter help? I'm going to try that next time.

Easy recipe, but it's missing something. Vanilla maybe? I don't think I'll make this again

This recipe was extremely easy and yummy. We have 5 people living here and everyone one of them loved the cookies. They didn't come out hard for me, I had noticed a few revies said that it did... I thought they were excellent and definitely suggest trying them if you're short on money or time.

the cookie itself is not bad.However it is a bit hard,prefer a chewy cookie.I think some baking soda or baking powder might help with the problem. It does need some flavor.Original batch was cooked as the recipe said,second batch cooked with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and butter flavoring and the result was much better.A softer cookie with a rich butter flavor.
