This no-fail sugar cookie dough is perfect for family baking and decorating. It's easy to roll out and holds its shape in the oven. It bakes up perfect cut-outs every time!
You can fancy up the flavors by using brown sugar in the dough or substituting the vanilla extract for almond, lemon or orange flavor. But you don't need to - vanilla is the classic for a reason.
If you don't have time to do all the steps at one sitting, this dough can be frozen for up to a month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before using.
You can also decorate cookies at a later date. Baked cookies will keep at room temperature for a few days in a sealed container. They also can be frozen for about a month. Defrost and allow to air out before decorating.
This recipe, adapted by one found in Family Fun magazine, makes 24 - 36 cookies, depending on size and desired thickness.
