Excellent cut out cookie. Very sturdy and extremely minimal spreading. I followed the recipe with the exception of only needing 6 cups of flour. Half of the cookies I put sticks in, the other half I just baked. I used bamboo skewers. I cut them in half with a new, clean pair of rose pruners and sanded the cut edges with a new, clean sanding sponge to eliminate any rough edges. I rolled my dough to 1/4" thick and got exactly fifty 3" cookies. I iced them with Sugar Cookie Icing from this site. It's the perfect taste combination and the icing dries shiny and "hard" to the touch, while remaining "soft" when you bite into it. This flavor of this recipe could easily be altered by adding 1-2 tsp. of different flavorings such as almond, lemon, etc. To make rolling easier, I put a tea towel (flour sack towel) on my counter and sprinkle with flour. Then I roll my dough out on this. It completely eliminates the dough sticking.
