To celebrate the pitter-patter of tiny feet (or any occasion), crisp buttery sugar cookies like these are a hit, hands down! They cut wonderfully into delicate shapes and look festive decorated with pink and blue sugar. -Joyce Leach, Armstrong, Iowa

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2011

"These are the best cut out cookies. Everyone in my family loved these so much we all threw out our old cut out recipes. We love the almond flavor and the dough is always easy to work with. You don't even need to chill the entire two hours and it will still roll out great. Excellent!"
