  1. I like Alton Brown's sugar cookie recipe:

    Also, stronger in flavor of course, but Gingerbread cookies are great for cookie cutters.

    1. Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, I can't make it any better myself, so that's what I use.

      1. I have used this No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe many times with great success.
