Wonderful, luscious, buttery cookies! I normally avoid making roll-out cookies because they are time-consuming. This recipe was extremely easy to put together (I have a stand-up mixer and didn't even have to add the flour by hand), and as stated in the recipe, there is absolutely no chilling necessary. The dough was easy to roll-out, and the dough did not stick to my metal cookie cutter. I was able to make 24 - 26 pumpkin cookies (Wilton pumpkin cookie cutter). Make sure you don't roll your dough any thinner than 1/8-inch or they will be very thin. I recommend using a hot cookie sheet with your very first batch of cookies - I started with a cold cookie sheet and my first batch was much flatter than the rest of my batches (and not as pretty). Frosted these wonderful cookies with [recipe=19649]Cookie Frosting[/recipe]. Thanks for a great recipe! See all activity
