As is, these don't consistently keep their shape. Nonetheless these are a good base recipe for sugar cookies that are on the sweeter side. I omit the leavening (baking powder in this case) which results in a cookie that keeps its shape - important when using detailed cookie cutters. I also bake these at a slightly hotter temp (350 vs 325) for a shorter duration - 10 to 12 minutes, they shouldn't color much otherwise they'll be crisp rather than chewy. With these revisions they're great!
