Roll-Out Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
I collect cookie cutters (I have over 5,000!), so a good cutout recipe is a must. These cookies are crisp and buttery-tasting with just a hint of lemon, and the dough handles nicely. —Bonnie Price, Yelm, Washington

Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. (Dough will be very stiff. If necessary, stir in the last cup of flour mixture by hand. Do not chill.) On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut out cookies into desired shapes. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 6-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks; cool completely. For glaze, combine the sugar, water and corn syrup until smooth. Tint with food coloring if desired. Using a small brush and stirring glaze often, brush on cookies, decorating as desired. Yield: about 6 dozen (2-1/4 inch cookies).

The only sugar cookie my family lets me make now! A little lemon or orange zest makes a nice addition too.

Great flavor, I generally don't care for cut out cookies, they are bland to me, this recipe is easy, and yummy. NO CHILLING either :)

Forgot to add that I used preheated stones to bake these in a convection oven and had to reduce the cooking time to 5 minutes as the first batch were slightly overcooked. Yum!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 19, 2012

These cookies turned out great. I was concerned that they would not keep their shape when baked because the recipe does not call for refrigeration before rolling/baking. They held their shape perfectly and I will use this as my only cutout cookie recipe due to its simplicity and taste. They have a very delicate shortbread taste.
