"Christmas cutouts signal the season for our family," relates field editor Dawn Fagerstrom of Warren, Minnesota. "Usually I 'paint' these with colorful icing - or if time's short, I simply sprinkle them with colored sugar."

MY REVIEW

"Best sugar cookies I have ever made or eaten!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2014

"Excellent! I made these with my 7 yr old nephew, very easy. I chilled the dough for about 20 minutes in the freezer and they rolled out nicely."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 11, 2014

"I followed the recipe exactly as written, but my dough came out very soft. I chilled it over night so that I could roll out the cookies in the morning. I found that the dough got warm and soft very quickly, making it almost impossible to roll out and difficult to cut the cookie shapes. Should I have added more flour?"

"Excellent taste, rolled easily cut out easily! I cut almond extract to 1/4 Tsp."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2013

"The taste is good, but this recipe isn't very conducive to cutout cookies ... they don't hold their crisp shape when baking."
