I hate making cutout cookies, the chilling, the rolling, the cardboard texture. NO MORE! This is a fabulous recipe! The little bit of lemon extract gives them just a little zing. The cookies are light in texture and crisp, they also store well. We ate them all without even frosting them ... I guess I'll have to make more. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Now my favorite Sugar/Cutout cookie! Easy to make and fast. No chilling time. Just roll cut and bake in 6-8 min. Perfect. My kids loved sampling the dough (though many don't allow children to eat batter with raw egg). It's pasteurized so we don't worry. I used all Vanilla Extract. Not the 1/2 teaspoon. Lemon Extract. Anyway, before icing or sugaring , they delighted in the cookie by itself as do I but Icing or Sugaring before baking will add the extra sweetness it needs to be a Sugar Cookie. Winner! Thank you for sharing.
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!
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.
