I don't usually care for sugar cookies, but I volunteered to bake 6 doz. for an event at my son's school. I tried 2 different recipes, and this one was awesome! I like nutmeg, so the flavor was perfect for me. If nutmeg isn't your thing, try substituting 2 tsp. of lemon, lime, or orange zest. Also, I added 3T of sour cream with the butter. It makes for very tender pastry. Since it's a fairly soft dough, chill as long as possible (I did overnight) so that you have to use a min. amount of flour for rolling. Better yet, roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper, remove the top sheet, cut the shapes without removing them, and put the whole thing in the freezer for a few minutes to get them good and stiff again. They will pop out easily and the scraps can be re-rolled over and over since no flour was added in rolling.
