The holiday season just wouldn't be complete without a day of cookie baking. These simple sugar cookies get their lovely flavor and texture from a few unexpected ingredients.
Once cold, divide the dough in half and roll out each half one at a time on a lightly floured surface into a layer about 1/2 inch thick. Use a sharp knife or cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. (For an easier option you can skip rolling them out and simply form the dough into 1 inch balls for round cookies. Another easy option is to form the dough into a, 2- inch in diameter log, and chill until hard enough to slice and bake.)
Place cookies at least 1-inch apart on a parchment lined baking tray and place tray in the freezer for about 15 minutes to chill before baking. (This helps them to keep they're shapes perfectly and also helps them bake soft.
Once chilled, bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until very lightly browned on edges. Remove from oven and cool completely. If desired, decorate with frosting and sprinkles. Store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
