This no-fail sugar cookie dough is perfect for family baking, decorating and even making into multi-color dough. It's easy to roll out and holds its shape in the oven. It bakes up perfect cut-outs every time!
We added some almond extract to amp up the flavors of our Kid-Friendly Cut-outs. If you prefer, you can fancy up the flavors by using brown sugar in the dough or substituting extra vanilla, lemon or orange flavor.
If you don't have time to do all the steps at one sitting, this dough can be refrigerated for a few days. Or you can freeze up to a month. Thaw frozen dough in the refrigerator overnight before using.
The cookies as shown take some patience. You'll need to roll, cut strips and cut out. Then recycle the strips for more strips or to use to cut out multicolor hearts. What's great is you can use your imagination. The cookies can be as precise or random as you like.
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.
Makes 24 - 36 cookies, depending on size and desired thickness. We like these rolled out a little on the thicker side, about 3/8 inch thick.
