    I was worried about this recipe given the mixed reviews, but it really is the best! Here are my suggestions: Mix the dough like any regular cookie dough. By that I mean, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg and mix well, then add the cream and extract (I used almond). While those things are mixing, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine the two and mix well. Let the dough chill for several hours before rolling out.

    I love the suggestion to mix flour and sugar for rolling, and was able to roll the dough thin. We must have over 100 cookies, all sizes, all beautiful. Looking forward to decorating them. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I tried the sugar cookie tonight and it was ok. My little girl enjoyed it. We are trying out cookies for her school cookie exchange for Friday. Thank you for the recipe.

    Sounds like shortbread cookies.

    Hi! Love your recipes. Can’t wait to try them out. I do have a question, is there a trick to the batter or some way to keep those nice sharp cookie-cutout shapes? Your star cookie looks super nice! Last, year I used frozen cookie dough to make some Lego miniman cookies and they totally lost their shapes while baking. They barely resembled a miniman. That was soooo dissappointing. I’m hoping to avoid that this time around :) Thanks!

    I guess it depends on the cookie dough you are using. That and you do need to chill the dough completely. ~Elise

    going to try out the 1st recipe for superbowl cookies:) how long does the 1st recipe dough need to be refrigerated for? (like a minimum number of hours, I may not have 2 days to make them)

    Oh I would say at least a couple hours. ~Elise
