The Best Cookie Cutout Recipe EVER!

October 14, 2012 § 1 Comment

I cannot and will not take credit for this tasty cookie dough recipe.  It is my mom’s recipe.  Where she got it, I don’t know.  It may just be one of those secret family recipes! 🙂  If it is…SORRY MOM!  The secret is now out.

There are many different recipes for this type of sugar cookie dough.  What I know about this recipe is that it is amazingly good. REALLY!  No fool’n!

I remember making cookie cutouts with this dough as a child.  They tasted so good.  I think maybe the secret to this recipe is the orange peel.  My Suggestion: Give this recipe a try!  It may even end up being your “go to” cookie cutout recipe.  It is mine.

Nonee’s Sugar Cookie Cutouts

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream together the butter, sugar, orange peel and vanilla.  Add the egg and beat with mixer until light and fluffy.  Stir in the milk.  In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.  Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until incorporated.  Divide the dough into 2 halves.  Wrap each with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Once the dough has chilled, unwrap and place on a light floured surface.  Roll the dough out to approx. 1/8 inch thick.  Cut in desired shapes with cookie cutters and place shapes on a lightly greased cookie sheet or silpat.  Bake for about 6-8 minutes.  Remove from oven and let the cookies sit for a minute before removing them to the cooling rack.  Letting them sit for a minute with help them not come apart when transferring to the cooking rack.

Once cool, decorate!  I love when the kids decorate them.  They love doing it and they have such great decorating ideas.  Be sure to get a lot of sprinkles.  Kids love sprinkles.

Now to my favorite part.  EATING THEM!  Some hold me back…

    I will give this a try since I don’t particularly like my recipe. It’s rather tasteless. Good to see a new post from Rhelda’s Recipes!
