Then several years ago I got together with some friends to have our kids decorate cookies together. My friend Natalie E., had this amazing recipe for sugar cut-out cookies given to her by a friend Nancy G. So in my cookbook these are Nancy G's sugar cookies. Besides the regular ingredients, these have a some sour cream and just a little nutmeg that give them a delicious flavor. I'm happy eating them without frosting, although the kids of course pile on the frosting.
You do definitely have to chill this recipe before rolling it out. I make my dough the night before, so it's thoroughly chilled in the fridge. Then I roll out about 1/3 of the dough at a time and return the rest to the fridge to keep it cold.
their friends over to decorate cookies. (Turned out 2 batches were enough, but we found people more than happy to take the extras.) You'll just have to believe me that these are the BEST.
