I always have a problem with sugar cookies: When I cut them and place them in the oven: They spread!!! It seems like if they're melting and loose the form! What am I doing wrong? I love them, love their taste and love to make them. But I dont know why do they spread like that. Please Help Me!!!!

Fixed my problem by adding eggs and water. Rolled out well and is baking well at 400F for 6 min. Ingredients saved!

i place a dowel rod on either side of the dough as i roll that way it is always the same thickness i like my sugar cookies thick so i use 1/2 inch dowels but you could use any size you wanted it works great
