Cutout Sugar Cookies
3 cups butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup conf. sugar
2 tbsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
6 cups of flour
Cream the butter until fluffy, occ scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add both sugars and continue beating until light about 2min. Add the vanilla, eggs and salt until incorporated. Slowly add the flour until fully blended in.
Divide the dough into about 5 equal amts and roll each amt between two pieces of waxed paper about 1/4 inch thick or desired thickness. Stack all the layers on a flat cookie sheet and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hrs.
When ready to bake preheat oven to 325*
Peel off the top layer of waxed paper and cut your dough with cookie cutters. Use a spatula to lift the cut dough off the bottom piece of waxed paper.
Place cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Mine are always done at 15 min.
Cool on wire racks.
This dough is very rich, so always keep it cold till ready to cut out. I reroll the scrapes of dough between some clean wax paper and let it get chilled again.
These cookies are my go to cutouts and are so delicious.
I frost the cookies with a fluffy buttercream.

you can store thenm in any cookie tin w/tight fitting lid - just dont store them with moist cookies
the moistness will make the laced cookies be more chewy than crispy -
still will be good but not their intention
when I give out goodie bags - all the cookies can play together - I'm not a monster
the chociolate oozes out of the tiny holes - so only put a little and slide the cookies against ieach other to make them stick against each oterh- it is NOT supposed to be a thick filling but more like a glue
I do hope u try them - they are not my favorite although most are in awe of them
I love biscotti - bc I know how much butta is in all the other cookies lol

This recipe is from the NY Times from many years ago. It is my favorite cookie. It's not difficult, but definitely time-consuming (especially if you are making triple or quadruple the batch!).
