Holiday Cutout Cookies
Makes 40| Total Time:
- Divide the basic sugar cookie dough in half (do not substitute slice-and-bake dough). On a floured surface, roll each piece out ¼ inch thick.
- Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Refrigerate on baking sheets until firm.
- Sprinkle with decorating sugar and bake at 350° F on parchment-lined baking sheets until just beginning to brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Cool slightly on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Set baking sheets in the center of the oven rack, two inches between them, so heat circulates evenly.
