Ideal Sugar Cookies
Get out your cookie cutters! As its name suggests, this sugar cookie recipe is ideal for making cutout cookies for Christmas, Easter, or any other holiday or occasion that calls for shaped sweet treats.
Soft cookie dough loses its shape when moved; to retain crisp cut edges, refrigerate dough as directed in recipe until firm before baking. This recipe is adapted from "The Martha Stewart Living Christmas Cookbook" (Oxmoor House, 2003).
