Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

I was wondering if anyone has a quick and easy recipe for Cutout Sugar Cookies for Christmas. I have found a lot of recipes but so many call for like 6 cups of Flour. I don't want to make that big of a batch.

Most recipes can be cut down. I have successfully cut mine in half and even into one fourth the normal with fine results. Just find a recipe you are pleased with and adjust it to the amount of cookies you want to make.

These can be soft OR crisp. The key is to take them out AS SOON AS they start to puff up. about 8 minutes.

3/4 cup butter

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla extract and blend. Add remaining ingredients and blend. Chill at least one hour.

Roll dough onto flour surfaced and cut out into shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8 - 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Also I usually just roll out the dough on an old pillow case sprinkled with powder sugar. Then cut into triangles with a pizza cutter. Rolling them in flour makes them tough. Carol

These are easy and not too sweet, and are best with sugar or icing on top. This is the very best recipe I ever used.

1 c butter or margarine or a combination

1/2 c sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

3 c flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar.

add egg and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add dry ingredients, but do not overmix, and this will toughen cookies.

Chill for an hour or so, then roll about 1/4 inch thick on a well floured board (*HINT* roll on wax paper...or I use white freezer paper and throw away the mess when finished) and cut with cutters. Bake in a preheated 350f oven until just beginning to brown around the edges, 8-10 minutes. Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.

Cool and frost or sugar.

These are very tender and good.

I have a favorite sugar cutout cookie recipe and it also is a LARGE recipe. Why not 1/2 the recipe that you do have. That works fine I have found.
