I made a batch to bake Christmas cut out cookies for my coworkers and they all loved it! I love these too! These are just what I've always been looking for in a cut out sugar cookie - easy to work with, doesn't spread a ton while baking, thick, sturdy yet still soft inside! In my oven it took exactly 10 minutes to bake perfectly so I'd suggest watching your cookies closely for doneness. And I used 1 T of vanilla extract and 1 t of almond extract instead of the 1.5 t vanilla extract because I want extra flavor. I added the extra 1/4 C of sugar as suggested but I won't do that going forward since I iced my cookies and found it to be a little too sweet (and I like sweet). I didn't use the icing recipe from this recipe (I used a different one that calls for confectioners' sugar, milk/water, corn syrup, and flavoring extract) and this was perfection! I will be using this as my "go to" sugar cookie cut out recipe from now on!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!***Update*** This is the only sugar cookie cut-out recipe with the minor alterations I listed above that I'll ever use or need. Hands down best cut-out sugar cookies for any occasion EVER!
