Thick Cut-Outs
November 30, 2009

The recipe I've been looking for forever! They remind me of the ones you can get at "Dutch" restaurant bakeries. Yes, the recipe neglects to tell you to add the vanilla extract, but come on folks! Add it with/after the eggs. I did double the vanilla, added around 3/4 teaspoon of almond extract, and added 1/4 cup of sugar as suggested by others because I like a sweeter cookie. Perfect flavor! Matched great with the "Sugar Cookie Icing" recipe on this site (not the icing recipe given). You don't need to add flour; stick in the fridge for an hour, put flour on your rolling surface, a bit on your rolling pin, and a sprinkle on the dough you're going to roll out - no sticking! I baked them for a total of 10 minutes, turning the sheet around in the oven at 5 minutes because my oven doesn't heat evenly on both sides unless I do so. In my case, I had to watch the bottoms carefully - a teeny bit of golden color and they were DONE. People are always so impressed with these! I hate reading the extremely low star reviews for this recipe...people, learn the basics of cookie making (cream your butter/sugar thoroughly, don't over-mix the flour, use fresh baking powder/soda, learn the signs of doneness, etc.) before you complain about a recipe!
