“This is a fantastic sugar cookie dough that is very versatile. On Country Home's website they have quite a few different awesome cookie ideas using this basic dough . . . they have suggestions for making farmyard animals and sandwich star cookies . . . I used the recipes to make plain sugar cookies - just sprinkled them with colored sugar and they were perfect. Chill time not included.”
2-3 dozen - depend how thick you like
