I hadn't made cut out cookies in over 4 years, and the last time I did, they lost their shape after baking and weren't the soft, chewy texture I craved for. So, I decided to give this recipe a shot, since I need to bring some to a cookie decorating party next week. I followed the directions as listed, omitting the nutmeg (since I didn't have any on hand). Chilled the dough overnight in the fridge. I took it out at 6 am the next day and was worried because it got REALLY hard overnight and I wondered if this would make it too difficult to roll out. Amazingly, after warming up the dough a bit by kneading it (by hand), it rolled out fairly easily and cur outs were clean. I tasted one as soon as it came out of the oven, and it was not too sweet and pretty soft. I froze all of the cookies since the party is not for a week..so, I hope they stay soft once I defrost them. They aren't quite the soft cookie I was expecting (I was hoping they'd be like the soft frosted ones you buy at the grocery store), but they held their dhape nicely and will do well with frosting.
