Cook's Notes

Decorating tips: Sprinkle sugar on cut-out dough just before baking. Stick candies onto cookies after they are baked and cooled, using dabs of sugar paste (1/2 cup confectioners' sugar whisked together with 1 teaspoon water).

    I must have done something wrong because when I made it it was more like handling chocolate chip cookie dough from Betty Crocker baking mix... But, they came out just fine and I added Nutmeg, Sugar, and Cinnamon after they had baked (Even though the recipe said do it before they bake). They were delicious. Past tense, if you catch my drift.

    This dough comes together easily and rolls out well. Not super delicate and fragile. I used cookie cutters and was very pleased with how easy it was to work with the dough. Completely pleased with taste, yes...the cinnamon makes it a different butter cookie...appearance is lovely. I used colored sugar to decorate. I am glad I made a double batch and have some in the freezer to bake at a later time. If you love baking cookies, this is a recipe to try. My house smells heavenly.
