Ingredients

1 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 ounces
cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup
sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
3 cups
all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (3 to 4 minutes). Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes).
  2. Divide dough in half; wrap in each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours).
  3. Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

I love the taste of these sugar cookie cut-outs! Have made them the last three years;ever since I came across the recipe. Yum!

My all time favorite cookie recipe. If I make only one batch of cookies for Christmas, or any other time, this is my go to recipe. I try to make extra to freeze and have on hand when grandkids need something to do.

I found this recipe 18 years ago and I have made it every Christmas since. I cut them out and then frost with colored vanilla frosting then sprinkles. My family requests them as gifts so I package them with other cookies and fudge. No complaints here.

This cookie has allmost no flavor, it needs frosting or chocolate to make it worth eating, however they look great.

We used the larger cutters - the stocking cap & mittens were favorites. The larger size was easier for the kids to decorate. This was one of the easiest batters to roll out. The cookies didn't crumble like a sugar cookie.

Fabulous recipe. They were very popular at a cookie swap I took them to. I topped them with a cream cheese frosting that I whipped up and colored sugar to make them more festive. I will be making them again.

This is "the" cut out cookie recipe you cant go wrong in preparing! It is fabulous and you'll never attempt another cut out cookie recipe again! I always refrigerate over night so the cookie doesnt spread on the pan while baking. Happy Holidays!

This is my favorite cutout cookie recipe (actually it's the only one I use). I think the cream cheese adds to its richness. I always frost them with a cream cheese frosting recipe.
