I used to hate making cut out cookies; now that I've found NFSC recipe and figured out the 'clean and easy' way to roll them out, i.e., roll out while soft then put in fridge, then cut out, I love making them! But what is your preference for thickness? 1/4 inch? 1/2 inch?

I just did some decorated cookies for the first time, they turned out great at 1/4 in.

I prefer the range of 3/16 to 5/16 of an inch. For some batches and cutouts of cookies, the thinner, crispier cookie at 3/16" is more appropriate. But I generally make my cookies at 5/16" because I like them softer and chewier.

I've always made mine at 1/4" but next time I'm going a little thicker because people have said the icing overpowers the cookie.
