Roll-Out Cookies

 Made  times

"I collect cookie cutters (I have over 5,000!), so a good cutout recipe is a must. These cookies are crisp and buttery-tasting with just a hint of lemon, and the dough handles nicely."

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. (Dough will be very stiff. If necessary, stir in the last cup of flour mixture by hand. Do not chill.) On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut out cookies into desired shapes. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 6-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks; cool completely. For glaze, combine the sugar, water and corn syrup until smooth. Tint with food coloring if desired. Using a small brush and stirring glaze often, brush on cookies, decorating as desired.

I've been looking for a recipe that I can use with cutters for my children - this is the one I will use forever! Rolling was a breeze - dough was perfect. I made it in my food processor and co...

I love that you don't have to take time to refrigerate this dough.....big time saver! I did find the dough to be quite sticky though so I had to keep adding flour until it was in a workable form...

Good cookie but I found the lemon flavor a bit too overpowering for my taste. I will definitely try this recipe again, skipping the lemon and maybe replacing it with orange flavor... Otherwise, ...

These came out unbelievably good - I'm not really a cookie person, but I couldn't get enough of them, I made 3 flavors, vanilla, lemon and almond.

I just sat down from making these. I forgot to add the egg initially, so the first batch was without it. They tasted fine anyway...hubby said he actually preferred those! He did say he'd like...

These are by far the best rolled sugar cookies I've ever had. They have lots of flavor and are just sweet enough to taste good without frosting, but not so sweet that it's overwhelming if you do...
