Wonderful! I completely avoid baking, especially cut-out cookies. SO many bad experiences. I have tried many, many sugar cookie recipes in the past, all ended in frustration as I tossed the recipe in the trash. This year I promised my kids I'd bake again, and I went on a new recipe hunt. I found this recipe, poured over the reviews, and gave it a try with little hopes of changing my attitude. I was so happily surprised. This is, by far, the best roll-out sugar cookie recipe I have ever tried. The dough seemed sticky as it came out of my mixer, but after chilling, it was the easiest dough I have ever worked with. It rolled like a dream from start to finish. I made two double batches. The first, I refrigerated overnight. The second, I refrigerated just a couple of hours. Both rolled out exactly the same and baked up the same. Just make sure they are chilled thoroughly. I separated the dough into smaller section and made the lumps of dough kind of flat after I wrapped them in plastic wrap. I laid them directly on the glass shelves in my refrigerator to chill. The dough needed little flouring and released from my plastic cutters wonderfully. The cookies taste great. I cut the cookies 1/4" as recommended, and I baked each sheet of cookies for exactly 12 minutes, just until the edges began to turn brown, and they were perfect. I decorated them with a sugar cookie glaze (also found on this site), sprinkles, and piping, and they taste even better. You won't be disappointed.
