Thank goodness I found this recipe again, I searched the entire sugar cookie recipes for it! I moved couldn't find my print out and couldn't seem to remember the name. I used this recipe last Christmas for the first time. These cookies turned out AWESOME! They held the cut-out shape better than any recipe I've ever used! My cookies were the best looking ones out of the bunch that was brought for the kids to decorate and I had several nice comments from the other moms. I thought the cookie tasted great. I was a little dubious using the powdered sugar, but was pleasantly surprised! It has a light flavor and soft texture. I think if you're looking for a cookie for more flavor then maybe a more eggy recipe will be what you are looking for. If you want a recipe for cut-outs that is super, then this is the one you want or try adding almond extract or icing them. I also made these for my kids at home and they had a blast painting the cookies. I was worried about using raw egg yolk, but when baked it is safe to eat and store. The colors are awesome! They are so bright and make beautiful colors. Just make sure the kids rinse their brushes before changing colors. The more colors you use the better. I am thinking of using this at Valentines for a large heart cookie for the teacher and at Easter with some beautiful Easter colors. Thanks Robin for saving the day with your awesome cookie recipe! I am making sure to put it in my recipe box, so I won't ever lose it again!
