|These Cut-Out Sugar Cookies are patted out by the kids : )|
Cutting out & decorating Sugar Cookies at Christmas is a great memory-making activity for kids. My little girl and one of her BFFs had a blast making these.
We just used my Slice-and-Bake Dough recipe, and instead of rolling it into a log to slice it, they patted it out into circles and cut it out with cookie cutters.
After they were baked, the kids decorated them with frosting and candies.
If you're looking for a Great Christmas Party idea for kids, try having a Decorate-Your-Own-Cookie party - just set out the baked cookies with the frostings and candies. They'll have a blast!
You can start with your own mix from the pantry (see recipe below), and I've provided both Big and Small Batch recipes for the mix, in case you only want to make cookies this once : )
These are authentic family-made cookies - not those fake-looking things you buy at upscale bakeries for $5. each!

(I'm sure if you have a fancy machine - like a Kitchen Aid - that would
work too!). They're Baked on a Cookie Sheet, at 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes - till tops are
lightly browned, and bottoms are golden Brown. I bake mine on a
non-stick surface, and I don't oil or grease the pan. This year, I'm
actually baking these on my non-stick Perforated Pizza Pans - and it's
