This cut-out butter cookie recipe is simple and delicious. A perfect holiday treat!
Combine butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add milk, egg and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with assorted 2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Frost and decorate cooled cookies as desired.

Amazing Recipe...... Go seahawks!!
Used this recipe in my foods class substituting Crisco for half of the butter. We rolled it a little thicker than 1/8 inch, and they turned out great. We made the dough & refrigerated it on day one, I took it out about an hour before class, and which turned out perfect for ease in rolling but not sticky. Thanks for putting the recipe in your magazine advertisements.
This was a big disaster. The cookie had no flavor - I actually am now using them as dog treats.
I love this recipe. I found it years and years ago on the box of butter, and it has been my go-to-cutout recipe ever since. It always turns out well, and is SO tasty. I have doubled, and even tripled the recipe with no problem!
I have used this recipe for years for christmas cookies. It's simple, fun and the cookies are delicious! This year my 11 and 6 year old sons had a great time making the dough, rolling it out, cutting and decorating cookies for Santa and our family. I didn't want 4 dozen this year, so I simply cut all ingredients in half. This one is a winner!
This recipe is great! Very versitile. I have made it as listed but I have also subsitituded the egg and dairy for rice milk, egg replacer and vegan butter for my daughter who has severe food allergies. It still turned out great even with the substitutions! A+ recipe. Will use it forever!
I have tried a lot of cut-out cookies from sugar cut-outs to shortbreads. This is the best recipe. And i will be making them around christmas.

Spring is finally in the air! The days are getting longer, my commute is getting shorter (thanks to less ice and snow), and we just bought a pair of pint-sized, yellow rubber boots for our toddler to go puddle-stomping. After a very long, very cold winter, I feel like a mama bear coming out of hibernation. Thank goodness for sunshine!
