Passed on through three generations of moms, these cookies are a favorite of everyone.
Combine 2 cups flour and all remaining cookie ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in remaining flour.
Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Roll out dough, one portion at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on well-floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters.
Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
Decorate with frosting, if desired.

I have the dough in the refrigerator but it seems to have gotten so hard. Will it soften when I take it out?
I have made these cookies many times and they are always awesome! I frost them with a buttercreme frosting and decorate. There's an article on this webssite for those that are having problems with the cookies spreading too much.
Is the baking powder amount supposed to be teaspoon instead of tablespoon? Cookies tasted good but spread out all over the pan and ended up very thin. Thought maybe I had rolled too thin. Thicker just made them spread out even more. Last effort only put 4 cookies on the tray. Still ran together and had to cut apart. Don't know what happened but am wondering if recipe amounts are accurate. Thank you.
I would like to know why these cookies rise so high when baking but then flatten out so much when taken from the oven. They seem to lose there shape. They are very tasty and would like to make again if they wouldn't flatten out so. Could someone please answer. Thank you
This is the recipe that I use during all the "cookie" holidays...Everyone loves these cookies!!! You can't go wrong!!

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
