I have not ventured into the "decorated cookie" world! However I just bought the cutest cutters for the holiday, and want to give them a shot. I'm looking for a recipe, other than a regular sugar cookie dough, that works well with cutters. Any recommendations?!

I think this recipe was from CC, but I couldn't seem to find where I saved it from...I apologize to the original poster if it was here. It is NOT my original recipe.

Rolled Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks)butter or margarine
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg yolk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups NESTLÃ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels

Preheat oven to 350. BEAT butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg yolk. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in morsels. Shape dough into 2 round discs; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm.
ROLL each disc to 1/4-inch thickness between two sheets of waxed paper. Cut into shapes; place on ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Spread with frosting; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

The White Chocolate Sugar Cookies from are very yummy and a little different from the norm. I think the rolled cc cookie recipe that mgdqueen posted is also from there. HTH

Lots of people like the no-fail sugar cookies (NFSC).

The site that the NFSC recipe came from has several other recipes that work great for cut outs, too. I've tried the chocolate, lemon, and mocha recipes form that site and they are all great!

I think there are a few others too. It's
