This is my grandmother's recipe...it makes THE best cut-out cookies with a dough that is so easy to work with! The last 4 ingredients relate to the frosting...we always make at least a double batch!

Step-by-Step

  • 2When ready to make the cookies, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • 3Only take out of refrigerator a small amount of dough at a time. Roll out the dough on a well floured pastry cloth to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutters.
