Do you make cut out cookies?

I am so bad at them, mine spread too much. And get this I am a baker.. LOL.
If you make them what is the trick? Are they just sugar cookies?

  • You have to roll them out real thin before cutting them. And check them often because they'll cook faster than regular cookies.

  • My "trick" is to roll the dough as a large single piece to about 1/4 inch thick, right on the baking sheet, and bake the whole thing, as soon as the sheet is cooked, I take it out of the oven and cut my shapes quickly. Of course I end up using more dough, but each cookie is perfectly shaped.

    The kids and I eat the "leftovers." Just as good as the cookie, so none of it goes to waste.

  • When the kids were young, that's what we would do on Christmas Eve to keep everyone busy. I've never had a problem with my cookies spreading. I just use a basic sugar cookie recipe from a cookbook. Even today, with the kids grown, if I start baking they will come to the table to help decorate. Good memories!
