Kneaders is a bakery franchise in Utah and has by far the best sugar cookies anywhere. It's the lemon and nutmeg that put them over the top. The owner posted this recipe on a television blog and I am posting it and the icing for you.
Hope you love them as much as I.
Oh! And this makes a LOT. I just separate into fourths and freeze the others for great!

How to Make Kneaders Sugar Cookies


  1. Cream Together butter and sugar until fluffy
  2. add eggs, then milk. Scrape the sides of the bowl often
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Dough will be soft and sticky
  4. Place dough on well floured pastry cloth or workspace
  5. Knead in just enough flour to make dough workable. Dough will be very soft. It is best to knead with rolling motion so you have a smooth surface and you will not get cracks on the tops of your cookies
  6. Gently roll out to 3/8 inch thick
  7. Cut into desired shapes and place on baking sheet lined with parchment (I did without parchment, works fine)
  8. Bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes or until just the edges barely start to change colors. Makes approx 4 dozen.
  9. for Icing
    Mix together all ingredients until smooth
    Dip cookie in icing and smooth with wide side of palm of hand. Let set. Decorate with icing, chocolate chips, candy, coconut, etc.
