I found a great sugar cookie recipe!
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sugar-C...ts/Detail.aspx

It's not too sweet, the dough holds together well and the cook up firm and are not crumbly! We will be decorting them this week and the frosting will add some sweetness so they'll be perfect!

I have been looking for a long time. My stepmom makes cookies every year, but refuses to give out the recipe. Yes, she's one of those people who'd rather take it to the grave than share it. Anyhoo.. my daughter and I had been searching for one that worked the same way and I think this is it! Yum!

BTW...I bought the winter cutters which include a cap, sweater, and mitten! I can't wait to decorate those!

Thanks Jan, they look great! Those cookie cutters sound adorable, I just bought wrapping paper with hats and mittens and scarves on it too. Christmas + Knitting = AMAZING!

We've already made and eaten our cookies this year! They sure didn't last long. I have my favorite sugar cookie recipe too, but I think I'd share it instead of keeping it a secret. My baked beans recipe on the other hand.....

I don't have little ones at home anymore and I was one of those moms that hated doing decorated cookies for Christmas so we did tons of other kinds.

Since we will be traveling at Christmas time this year, I am just taking homemade milk chocolate fudge, rice krispie squares and yummy giant chocolate chip cookies. I usually make kieflies, but not this year with the surgery too much standing.

Thanks for the recipe, Jan, I will have to check it out. They must be good she got an average of 4.5 stars with most giving 5 stars!

They sound yummy. I've been looking for a good sugar cookie recipe and I might have to try these.

On a related topic, does anybody have a good recipe for sugar cookie icing? I want to make some to decorate with my nephew, but I haven't made them for quite some time and I don't remember what icing I used.

Thanks!

Jessica, this pdf has a great icing recipe- scroll down to the "buttercream icing" recipe. This is a fabulous sugar cookie recipe, too! My girls and I made the cookie christmas tree, and the cookies held up well. Of course, the tree only lasted a few days...

edit: duh, it would be good if I added the link... http://www.wilton.com/recipes/articl...structions.pdf

Kiflies are Hungarian, a light pastry dough base with a yummy walnut filling. They are not easy to make, my gramma and mom used to make them every Christmas and complain and grumble the whole time (of course they did it tongue in cheek--they knew we appreciated them!)

Very yummy if you can get the recipe just right!
